Bookmark Site script

Author: Dynamic Drive

Note: Updated Feb 8th 07' by Frankyboy to work in Opera as well.

Description: This is a cross browser (Firefox 1.x+, IE4+ and Opera7+) script for allowing the user to easily bookmark your site, by clicking on a link on the page.

Demo: (You can use either an image link or a regular text link)

Bookmark Dynamic Drive!


Directions: Developer's View

Step 1: Add the below code to the <head> section of your page:

Select All

Step 2: Create either an image or text link that will be used as the Bookmark Site link. For the href attribute, use the following code:

javascript:bookmarksite('title_of_site', 'url_of_site')

Here's an example:

<a href="javascript:bookmarksite('Dynamic Drive', 'http://www.dynamicdrive.com')">Bookmark this site!</a>

Remember, if your site's title contains apostrophes, they need to be backslashed when entered:

<a href="javascript:bookmarksite('Mike\'s Place', 'http://www.google.com')">Bookmark this site!</a>
