How to Add Icons to Blogroll Links

I figured out a tricky way to show a websites icon next to the link in your blog roll.  I’m using Firefox to do this.

1.  Go to website’s homepage.

2.  Right click in an empty space and select “View Page Info”.  It should be directly below “View Page Source”

3.  You should see a popup for something like this:

4.  Next, click on the “Media” tab and look for the line that ends with “…favicon.ico”.

5.  Now go to your blog dashboard and go to “Links”.

6.  Select or create the link for the website you want and scroll down to the Advanced section and paste the address in the first field for “Image Address”.
