Wilkie Martin - Surviving Publication

Author of the unhuman series of addictive comedy cozy mysteries set in the Cotswolds. This documents my encounters with publishing and includes things I hope will be useful later. It also covers some local writing competitions and reviews some writing events.

Include an option on your #webpage so it can be added to delicious.com #social #bookmarking

This is another step in building my #author's #platform to make adding useful links to my website in delicious.com easier. Delicious is a social bookmarking tool. it allows you to save links to website pages or blog pages that you like in one place, so that you can use them from different devices.

By adding a little bit of java script into the html code for some of my webpages we've been able to add the option to create a bookmark to that page in delicious directly from that webpage. You do still need an account in delicious to use the option but if you have one it makes it easy to link to my page.

I don't know how to do this, but I know someone who does and these are the instructions they used:

  • copy the code below (see delicious address below) to somewhere into the html code for your webpage where you want the option to appear

    <img src="http://static.delicious.com/img/delicious.small.gif" height="10" width="10" alt="Delicious" />
    <a href="http://delicious.com/save" onclick="window.open('http://delicious.com/save?v=5&noui&jump=close&url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title), 'delicious','toolbar=no,width=550,height=550'); return false;"> Bookmark this on Delicious</a>

  • Or see the offical delicious instructions on http://delicious.com/help/savebuttons .
