I've got the following alias but the google icon is now showing! I took the icon part of the alias from the core-search alias for google without modification so don't know what I am doing wrong.

[copy or print]
1000>>>Feeling Lucky>->Google - $$1 | http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=$$1&btnI=I%27m+Feeling+Lucky /ICON=icons\google.ico>+>^!(.*)>/>24762

It allows you to type !youtube batman to quickly launch a I feel Lucky google.co.uk search for "youtube batman", it's very quick.

Compared to the default search:

Quote from: farr's help file
Version 2.00.129 - July 13th, 2007
  [bugfix] alias results with urls were showing \ICON in results
Isn't this the bug you mention in this thread?
Still not solved?

it's not really a bug -- the path to the icon is taken as relative to the current alias file directory.
so you need to put the icon file inside your myalias.alias directory (in a subfolder names icons in your case) for it to find it.

The custom icons have to be in the directory of your alias file or in a sub directory off from it (which is what I did for the core aliases), so if you want google icon. Just create a icons directory inside the myaliases.alias directory and copy the google icon from the core alias icons directory. smiley

Even More Information Tip:

To find icons, look in the core alias icon directory first and copy it to your alias directory; if you don't find what you are looking for, you'll have to find an icon somewhere or make one yourself. 
A good trick to finding icons for a web site is by going to the site url + favicon.ico (Ex. http://www.example.com/favicon.ico or http://this.website.com/favicon.ico).  If it doesn't find it then you will have to dig deeper by visiting the site then viewing the source code and see if the favicon is specified in it and piece the url together. smiley

I just tried creating some alias files with icons for the sites using Html View Mode listed in this thread. But when testing I can't get the icons to display.

example:
[copy or print]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Legacy" ?>
<!-- This file defines aliases for use by the Find and Run Robot program (http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Mouser/findrun/index.html). -->
<FarrAliasFile>
    <FileFormatVersion>1</FileFormatVersion>
    <AliasSetDescription>aliases using Html View Mode to display web content</AliasSetDescription>
    <AliasEntry>
        <AliasText>time</AliasText>
        <Score>1000</Score>
        <Regex>^time$</Regex>
        <Results>
            <Result>Internal Surf to exacttimenow | htmlviewurl http://exacttimenow.com/ /ICON=icons\exacttimenow.ico</Result>
        </Results>
    </AliasEntry>
</FarrAliasFile>

directory structure:
FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\MyCustom\HtmlViewMode\exacttimenow.alias
FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\MyCustom\HtmlViewMode\icons\exacttimenow.ico

When running the alias it looks like this:

edit: I just noticed that I have the same problem when doing a regular igo ____ . I don't pay much attention to the icons so I haven't thought about that before.

edit2: tried a clean reinstall of FARR. Didn't help.
BTW mouse, on second launch after reinstall FARR displays this traytip. The blue link is mistakenly placed behind the text, right?

*bump*

My 2nd post and my 1st problem. I don't get these Alias' icons working too.
It's not really a problem, but it would be a nice eye candy.

let me look into it and see if i can reproduce.
one thing you could check for me is if windows explorer shows the icon when you go into that icon directory and browse the icon files.

I only see the icons if I select Explorer-View > Thumbnails (not all). With View > Icons I see the Default-Software Icon for the file extension.

Hmmm, with FreeCommander I see all thumbnails.

Do you think it's because of my pimped Winexplorer?

i wonder if this has to do with a registry setting changing the default size of small and large icons; farr assumes 16x16 for small and 32x32 for large.. i wonder if changing this setting in windows can cause the problem..

some useful finds on the web that may be related:

seems like it has to do with icon cache.

The tips from the internet didn't help but they put me in the right direction.

I launched my picure viewer and unbind the .ico extension and voila everything is ok. smiley

Now I also see the special icons with every view in Winexplorer. cheesy

so everything is showing properly in farr now? that's great.
and now we know what to look for next time it happens.

I don't think it's the fault of the special picture viewer but file associations with viewers in general.

But I'm using ACDSee Foto-Manager.
