Super-Fast Delicious Bookmarklet


Today I noticed that Chris Lott was looking for a super-fast way to post to del.icio.us after having posted a link to this bookmarklet on his del.icio.us link page.

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:

  1. drag this link to your toolbar
  2. Right-Click the bookmarklet and select properties.
  3. In the Name field, change it to something like ‘tag’ (or whatever you like).
  4. In the location field look for the text ‘CHANGEME’ and replace it with your del.icio.us username.
  5. 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 ‘d’. (thanks craig!)
  6. Click OK to close the Properties window. Now go to the location bar go to ‘about:config’.
  7. Note: If you’d rather not have the window automatically close, skip the next two steps.
  8. In the search field type ‘allow_sc’.
  9. Right-Click the field labeled ‘dom.allow_scripts_to_close_windows’ and click ‘Toggle’.
  10. 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‘!
