    Hi,I found making the icon easy but do not know if I have put it in the right place. It's a Joomla site and I added it in the HTML page of the ttpelame.When I eventually fathomed out how to add the icon to my Android ICS home page, I got a white star in an orange square not what I was expecting. I obviously got it wrong. Nice idea though and I will try it on one of my HMTL sites where I know what I'm doing .. more!!!

    Hi Anthony, thanks for the quesoitn.I'm not quite sure what you're trying to achieve here but you can specify any image URL, it doesn't have to be in the root at I think your issue is less related to the bookmark icon and more to the redirects. If someone can't hit the bookmark' button before they're redirected away from the initial screen your referring to, then they'll be unable to bookmark it.ThanksWill [url=]dcypftcgfk[/url] [link=]ezcnev[/link]

    After reading your blog post I <a href="">bresowd</a> your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself and I think you should take a look here: You’ll find it’s a very nice tool that can bring you a lot more visitors. Keep up the quality posts
