Our favicon was made by Safan. He probably used a gif compiling software, flash or perhaps photoshop.

It consists of 3 frames, a red siren, blue siren, and a blue-red siren. It wqas then exported as a animated .gif and used. Cheesy Grin (sparkly

You can use Photshop, but alternatively you can use Flash and any other professional designing program. They should come with a animation feature. In Photoshop you can animate by using the timeline. Open it in windows -> timeline

thanks for the tips..... Honored
where do I add a favicon in the administration panel of my phpbb3 forum?
I can convert a gif to a ico file but I cannot convert an animated gif to an ico file.
does it have to be a ico file to work as a favicon? Thank You!

No, it doesn't. The one we are using now is a gif file.

You can add the favicon under other meta tags.

well I installed a favicon as an ico file and unlike your site my favicon appears on every page .....maybe because you are using a different scrip your favicon does not appear on every page.....and because it's a gif file.

this is where I put my new favicon.

well I keep on thinking.

You don't have to necessarily put the favicon under meta tags.

You can also put it under site description, as long as it's animated, it will work like any other favicon.
