As a forum member, I find it annoying when I have to spend a while locating a script when people don't link to it. So I spent some time in FireFox bookmarking all the DD Scripts. Here's my step-by-step guide for importing these links to your bookmark toolbar.

This is what the result of this guide will produce:

Before you do any of the steps, you need this file: (right-click and select Save As..) DD Links (http://www.gerryhyh.f2s.com/paul/content/DD%20Links.html)

Step 1:

First, in the View menu, make sure that Toolbars > Bookmarks is ticked.
Then, right click on the toolbar and select Manage Folders.


Step 2:

In this new window, create a new folder.


Step 3:

In the File menu, choose Import.


Step 4:

In the Import window, choose From File


Step 5:

In the next window, locate the html file you downloaded and click Open.


Step 6:

Now close the Management window and return to the main FireFox window. Click on Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks.


Step 7:
Image for Step 7 (http://img142.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img142&image=step4.jpg)

If you have existing bookmarks on the toolbar folder, you will now have two folders named "Bookmarks on Toolbar". Select the new folder you just made, "DD Scripts". Then, with that folder highlighted, click Move.


Step 8:

Then move the new folder in amongst your existing toolbar bookmarks.
That's everything done!

I hope this is useful :)

Hey ...way to go Cr3ative, I raise my glass to you... as this I'm sure will help the search for the right code. DDAdmin, could we not design a drop down menu such as cr3ative has done and add it to the home page. As whilst cr3atives concept is 100%, I'm not 100% sure soem of the new guests will a) find it b) know how to install it etc etc etc. Just a suggestion. rgds,Simonf:cool:

Very nice cr3active! I haven't tested it out yet, though I don't see why the bookmark menu wouldn't work.

I've actually thought about creating a scripts menu cataloging all of DD's scripts, though due to time constraints, gave up on that idea, since the menu would need to be updated whenever a new script is added.

The page that you actually need is http://www.gerryhyh.f2s.com/paul/content/DD%20Links.html, not the one cr3ative said.

Thanks for your time...
