Hosted wordpress social bookmarks bookmarklet

As I use Google Chrome as my default browser nowadays, I don’t currently have access to greasemonkey (userscripts are coming in 2.0 though :)) and therefore I can’t use my hosted wordpress social bookmarks greasemonkey script. For this reason (and for others who don’t use firefox*), I’ve knocked up a bookmarklet version of the script.

Given that it’s really diffcult to format code correctly in here, I’ll just point you to it as a file.  Just grab the file and and copy the contents as the location of a bookmark (preferably one on you bookmarks bar so you have easy access to it).  Then, whenever you’re on the add or edit post pages in your wordpress admin, you can click the link to add in the nifty “Social Bookmarks” section as if you were using the greasemonkey version.

Neat.

*Apart from those using IE as it seems to truncate all bookmarks longer than a predetermined max… what a PITA.

Make Google Chrome your default browser in Vista

If you (like me) have tried clicking ‘Make Google Chrome my default browser’ in options > basic with no result, you’re probably as frustrated as I was.

If you’re running Vista, it’s simply a privileges issue, you need to –

  • Close Chrome
  • Right click the Chrome shortcut and select ‘Run as Administrator’
  • Accept the warning about running as administrator
  • Go to options > basic (as before)
  • Press the ‘Make Google Chrome my default browser’ button

This time it should work 🙂

You can now close the browser as administrator and launch it again with your normal user credentials.

On a side note, if you are having trouble making Skype aware of Opera as your default browser, this may help.

Well, they’ve not announced it officially, but it appears it’s here.

Enjoy 🙂
