“Add favorites button to your website!”);’>

Add Icons to your website! (updated info, coming soon)
When I first started making this website, I viewed many other websites and could never figure out how they got those little helpful icons on their websites. I found my own way of adding them, I don’t know if this is how others apply them to their sites, but I will share with you how I put icons on my website. If you are good at downloading and opening saved files, I recommend you google search “free website icons“. You will then have access to different websites that allow you to download the icons to your computer and then upload them to your website. To add icons to my website, I created the icon using an image. I then linked the website icon to the page that I wanted it to go to when website icon was clicked. Many people call this hyper linking a Website Icon.
