    Create a WebClip Bookmark Icon
    iPhone and iPod touch allow a user to save a WebClip bookmark to your site on their Home Screen.

    To specify a bookmark icon for all pages of a web site, place a PNG image named "apple-touch-icon.png" at the root directory of your web server - similar to the "favicon.ico" for site icons.

    To override the site bookmark icon on a specific web page, insert a element similar to within the element of the page.

    The bookmark icon dimensions should be 57x57 pixels. If the icon is a different size it will be scaled and cropped to fit.

    Safari will automatically composite the icon with the standard "glassy" overlay so it looks like a built-in iPhone or iPod application.

    It IS in the root section as well. Always was. You just won't see it if you browse to it, cause of our hotlinking protection. That shouldn't affect the icon for Safari though.

    Doesn't work for me after several tries. It only works if I use modmyi.com/forums.

    BTW:
    Does anyone know the location of the webclip info on the phone? I'd like to see if I can manually change some url's and keep the icon. TIA

    It does work for any other page. Just not the home page (which most people like to open first). It'd be nice for it to work from there, too!
