Tags Bookmarklet

If you are new to wordpress.com then you want to read Lorelle’s Blog “Lorelle on WordPress”. This blog not only has a number of amazing tutorials, explanations, and advise on using wordpress but also on blogging in general.

While reading it I came across an article on Tagging and using bookmarklets to help with links to Tecnorati . While I could not find the bookmarklets described in the article or get it working with the Linux system I started a little search from the links that were on that article. What I came across was a Technorati Tools section. As part of it I found a nice bookmarklet that I could use to create Technorati links.

Using the script I modified it a bit to create both Technorati and wordpress tags at the same time. To use the script just cut and paste from below then create a new bookmark and place it in the site or location field.

Technorati and WordPress Tags Script

— CUT HERE —
javascript:(function(){var a=”;var t=prompt(‘Enter Tags without commas:’,”);if(!t) return;var tr=t.split(‘ ‘);a+='<hr><p><b>Technorati Tags: </b> ‘;for(var i=0;i<tr.length;i++){if(i > 0){a+=’, ‘;}a+='<a href=’+unescape(‘%22’)+’http://www.technorati.com/tags/’+tr%5Bi%5D+unescape(‘%22&#8242;)+’ rel=’+unescape(‘%22’)+’tag’+unescape(‘%22′)+’>’+tr[i]+'</a>’;}a+='<br></br>’;a+='<b>WordPress Tags: </b> ‘;for(var i=0;i<tr.length;i++){if(i > 0){a+=’, ‘;}a+='<a href=’+unescape(‘%22’)+’http://www.wordpress.com/tags/’+tr%5Bi%5D+unescape(‘%22&#8242;)+’ rel=’+unescape(‘%22’)+’tag’+unescape(‘%22′)+’>’+tr[i]+'</a>’;}a+='</p>’;prompt(‘Copy this code, press OK, then paste to your blog entry:’,a);})()
— END HERE —

I also modified the same script to create a search feature for my blog. To use this modify the word MYBLOG to the name of your blog and then create a new bookmark and paste the script in to the site or location field.

WordPress Site Search Script

— CUT HERE —
javascript:(function(){var a=”;var t=prompt(‘Enter Search Words without commas:’,”);if(!t) return;var tr=t.split(‘ ‘);a+='<hr><p><b>Site Search Tags: </b> ‘;for(var i=0;i<tr.length;i++){if(i > 0){a+=’, ‘;}a+='<a href=’+unescape(‘%22’)+’http://MYBLOG.wordpress.com/index.php?s=’+tr%5Bi%5D+unescape(‘%22&#8242;)+’ rel=’+unescape(‘%22’)+’tag’+unescape(‘%22′)+’>’+tr[i]+'</a>’;}a+='</p>’;prompt(‘Copy this code, press OK, then paste to your blog entry:’,a);})()
— END HERE —

Let me know if this helped you in any way.

One thought on “Tags Bookmarklet

  1. Odd you couldn’t find the original javascript for the bookmarklet. It’s here and there are also copies, modified by me but working, on the article you’ve referenced. You figured it out, but I just wanted to check to see if the explanation and information was clear enough.

    And thanks for the kind words. And good luck with your new tagging bookmarklet and your new blog! Welcome to WordPress.com.
