Icon on urls in Tweetify

  • # August 21, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    I’m using Tweetify on automatic links on my website’s wall/stream. I would like to insert favicons on the links though. Does anyone know how to first of all get the favicon of a url (the url can be something like “”), then use a dummy favicon like Google Chrome’s default favicon if there isn’t anyone on the domain, if not use their favicon before the URL like this:


    By the way, this is how my tweetify looks like:

    I’m sure this would be possible, but it would help if you could set up a demo for us to build on or at least the HTML. Also, is that the entire tweetify function?

    Yes, just with jQuery of course.

    Sorry, I meant that the HTML of the actual tweets would help :P

    Edit: Oh wait, that top one is an example, isn’t it?… where did you want the favicon? Well, I should say “more” examples would help :P LOL

    It’s not used for tweets, it’s for my own wall system. I just want to be able to get the icon off the url using scripting :P

    So, did you want the favicon for the hash or the link?… But for the hash, I would need the site url.
