How do I do that neat thing with a quick link in my browser?

Look in the list of quickie browser javascripts ("bookmarklets") and see if there's one for what you want.


  • Edit page in new window
  • View history in new window
  • Open Printable View in new window
  • Edit page attributes (passwords) in new window
  • View RSS for page in new window

Note: To open above links in the same window -- change "window.open" in any above to "window.location.replace". May not work in all browsers.

Alternatively use the format javascript:location.href+="?action=attr" -- refer below for more examples.

Do not confuse this recipe with the Bookmarklet recipe. This recipe displays the code necessary to create a bookmarklet with your browser but does not create a link on your PMWiki page. GNUZoo 08 21 2006 12:30 CST
