How to copy website favicon

You may already know that the little icon appearing to the left of a website's page title is called a "favicon". It's an image file that has to be at least 16 x 16 pixels in size (the higher the better resolution of course), has to have the exact name of favicon.ico and be placed in the root folder of your website. There are alternative ways of using it, but this is the default. Today I'm just going to provide you with a quick trick:

Setup a second router as a repeater bridge

This one is not directly related to webdesign or blogging, but we are all using the internet quite regularly, many of us do so using the very practical and therefore just as much popular solution, a wireless router. I recently moved into a new apartment where I was using a wireless router supplied by the internet service provider (ISP), but the flat is pretty big, thus in one of the rooms the signal of the wireless router was very weak. In order to strengthen the signal, I had the idea to use another wireless router in addition to the already existing one.

How to create a (browser) "Back" link

I always wanted to know this, so I hit the internet and searched for it: I wanted to find out how I can create a Back link on my page. This can be very practical for example on a 404 (page cannot be displayed) error page, as this way if visitors came to your website from one of your pages (or any other website) they can easily click your Back link making your page even more user-friendly.

Edit style of active page of your navigation menu

When building a website, it is crucial that visitors can easily navigate and know as to which page they are currently on. You may solve this by making the title of the page to stand out (like I did on this blog) or, the other way, it is actually recommended to use both if possible, you could style (eg. give a different colour to) the name of the currently visited page in the navigation menu.

How to leave a facebook network

*** EDITED: Unfortunately this solution does not seem to work at this stage as facebook seems to have changed their code to prevent people from being removed from their primary network. I encourage you to report this to them by filling out this form and they might eventually do it for you: As a workaround, you may choose a different network, that you are ok to keep, then you can remove your old network. If anyone reading this has a solution, please feel free to comment below. I'm however keeping the original post for the sake of history tracking. ***

I might be an exception, but it did disturb me a lot to have the name of a network added under my name in facebook when looking in friend lists, such as my friend's friend list, or when you open the link of the list of people who liked a post... etc. You might just want to get rid of your primary network for other reasons (one of the simplest, not part of it anymore), but to be honest, when I tried to remove this annoying network name from below my name, I did not find a solution up until today.

HTML and PHP includes

I know it's been a long time since I wrote here, but [replace with usual bla-bla], so let me make it up to you guys and give you a nice little hint here.

Usually when I want to build a website quickly and where design or dynamism is not all that important, I use simple HTML instead of PHP as I found it being much quicker to write. However, not being dynamic, a website built in HTML would be very complicated and time consuming to apply any changes to, unless you use a website builder software

New simplistic website MadeByMe

My bro's and I had an idea to organize our own mini-festival with the main idea to celebrate our birthdays in the summer months. This got the name "Hétvége az ég alatt" (meaning "A weekend under the sky" in Hungarian), thus the website's name ("Hét" is the word for number 7). You may also check it out under the MadeByMe page of this blog.
