Description Mike McShea 2008-01-17 15:49:20 UTC
Will Wiki be adding a custom icon for wiki people that will show up in the Springboard when a user makes a "webclip", using their iPhone or iPod Touch?

If so the simple way is:

Create a 57x57 PNG. Name it "apple-touch-icon.png" Throw it in the root folder of your website. (Not the root of your server, the root of your web documents.)

We share one root folder for all projects. So we'd have one logo for Wikipedia, the Commons, Wiktionary, etc. pp. To enable this feature, an additional <link rel/> tag is needed.
Comment 2 Mike McShea 2008-01-17 19:57:13 UTC
yes, the example below:

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/imgs/apple-cybernet.png" />  

is another way to do it.

Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-01-19 06:30:48 UTC
Support for the link added in r29942 ($wgAppleTouchIcon, defaults to false/none).

Have created an initial icon for Wikipedia:

(The glossy look and round corners are applied over this by the iPod UI. It looks rather fetching IMHO. :)
