The bookmarklet provides the following functionality:
- The ability to type ‘d tag1 tag2 …’ on the location bar to tag a new URL.
- If you select a block of text on the page, that is saved as the extended description. (Borrowed from here)
- The window is automatically closed after the link is posted. (Wanted by the author)
If you wish to use this, in Firefox, there are a couple steps which you have to take:
- drag this link to your toolbar
- Right-Click the bookmarklet and select properties.
- In the Name field, change it to something like ‘tag’ (or whatever you like).
- In the location field look for the text ‘CHANGEME’ and replace it with your del.icio.us username.
- In the keyword field of the property window type the letter(s) that you would like to use to do your quick tag. I like to use â€˜dâ€™. (thanks craig!)
- Click OK to close the Properties window. Now go to the location bar go to ‘about:config’.
- Note: If you’d rather not have the window automatically close, skip the next two steps.
- In the search field type ‘allow_sc’.
- Right-Click the field labeled ‘dom.allow_scripts_to_close_windows’ and click ‘Toggle’.
- You will now be able to type ‘d tag1 tag2 tag3…’ in your location bar then hit enter (just like if you were entering a URL). This will easily tag a page – enjoy! Don’t click the link in your bookmark toolbar, as you’ll end up tagging your pages with ‘%s‘!
