Hi Ryan

You can actually manage to get a favicon to display next to your domain name in the browser by pasting in some html. This text *should* really be placed in your head tags, but for now it is a hack which will achieve what you are looking for. Even if it is not exactly standards compliant or best practises!

What you need to do is:

1.) Upload an image to the resource manager (for the sake of this example, lets say that the image is called: 'myimage.jpg")
2.) Drag an html widget onto the page.
3.) paste the following code into the widget:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="resources/myimage.jpg" type="image/x-icon"><link rel="icon" href="resources/myimage.jpg" type="image/x-icon">

(note: you will need to change myimage.jpg to the relevant name of the image you uploaded in step 1.

This should do the trick. I havent tested extensively, but it works in FireFox
