Making MY site visitors browsers Home Page

Discussion in 'HTML' started by news frontiernet.net, Nov 24, 2003.

  1. I see facilities on internet to add a site to the visitors browsers
    Favorites.

    I think I have seen such a facility to let a visitor click on something that
    will make My Web site the home page for HIS broswer.

    Is this possible?

    How would I set that up? Can anyone point me to an example?

    Vistors know how to bookmark a site. No need for anything else.

  3. It ISNT bookmarking that I am interesrted in!

    It is providing a facility on my web site to allow visitors to quickly
    establish MY WEB SITE as the web site that their browser automatically opens
    up when the access it or ask for HOME.

    I expect that there are some visitos who would use this Facility.

    I remember seeing it somewhere on Internet. Does anyone know where there is
    an example of this, or could lead me to a resource for this?

    How the hell do they know how to book marks a site when they can even
    figure out how to close a window?

    Here is some code that will work on 80% of your visitors:

    <!-- ONE STEP TO INSTALL BOOKMARK US:

    1. Copy the coding into the BODY of your HTML document -->

    <!-- STEP ONE: Paste this code into the BODY of your HTML document -->

    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

    <!-- This script and many more are available free online at -->
    <!-- The JavaScript Source!! http://javascript.internet.com -->

    <!-- Begin
    if ((navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer") &&
    (parseInt(navigator.appVersion) >= 4) &&
    (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("AOL") == -1)) {

    var url="http://www.javascriptsource.com";
    var title="The JavaScript Source";

    document.write('<A HREF="javascript:window.ext');
    document.write('ernal.AddFavorite(url,title);" ');
    document.write('onMouseOver=" window.status=');
    document.write("'Add our site to your favorites!'; return true ");
    document.write('"onMouseOut=" window.status=');
    document.write("' '; return true ");
    document.write('">Add our site to your favorites!</a>');
    }
    else {
    var msg = "Don't forget to bookmark us!";
    if(navigator.appName == "Netscape") msg += " (CTRL-D)";
    document.write(msg);
    }

    // End -->
    </script>

    Sorry, here is the right code (mind you this does not work in all
    browsers)

    <!-- ONE STEP TO INSTALL SET HOME PAGE:

    1. Copy the coding into the BODY of your HTML document -->

    <!-- STEP ONE: Paste this code into the BODY of your HTML document -->

    <BODY>

    <!-- This script and many more are available free online at -->
    <!-- The JavaScript Source!! http://javascript.internet.com -->

    <!-- Original: wsabstract.com -->

    <!--[if IE]>
    <a HREF onClick="this.style.behavior='url
    (#default#homepage)';this.setHomePage
    ('http://www.javascriptsource.com');"><img src="house.gif"> Click here
    to make this your default homepage!</a>
    <![endif]-->

    <!-- Script Size: 0.60 KB -->--

    Hope that helped.

    Anyone who needs a script to put their URL in others' favorites is suffering

    If it's good, the user will bookmark it.

    Your right it is crap, and I knew the OP would be told that many many
    times. So I was only giving the OP what they asked for. They can take
    it, and combined with the other posts and make a decision.

    You gave some Javascript code to bookmark a page. This isn't want the OP
    asked for. Read the original post again if you thought it was.

    If you can't find it on your own, you're not fit to know it.

    If you can find it, it's still a monstrously irritating thing to do to
    a user. It is so annoying to so many people that I can think of _no_
    situation when it would be justifiable to use it.

    It's trivially easy for a user to bookmark a site they want to, and
    these people are still in the minority. So why irritate the majority
    like this, for such a tiny gain to so few ?

    So does this statement pertain to ALL knowledge?

    While you and I don't want/need it, apparently he wants that option. He
    didn't ask for YOU to justify it's use.

    Why an irritation? If they don't want to, they don't click the link.
    Very simple, no?

    Asking here is trying to find out on his own, you dipshit. Think
    about it - Googling produces the same result.

    Your point? It's his web site, let him fsck off his visitors in his
    own way. It would be perfectly justifiable in a corporate
    environment.
