bookmarklets

Here’s a post on adding del.ic.ious bookmarklets to you browser toolbar here on KRL computers.  This is a work-around to adding buttons.  Jeannie posted a link to a short tutorial on this yesterday, this is just a more detailed step-by-step account — told mainly in screenshots.  So, grab a cuppa whatever and pull up your recliner……

 Once you’ve registered for your Del.icio.us account, this is the first screen you will see.  Due to KRL security settings you will not be able to install buttons on your KRL computers from here.   Advance to the next screen shot to begin installing your Bookmarklets instead of buttons.  Bookmarklets work the same as buttons.
