Technorati Tags Bookmarklet – version 0.3

Those who already know and use Technorati Tags Bookmarklet here is its latest version.


javascript: ( function() { /* Technorati Tag Book Marklet 0.3 Created First By: Lorrell <; Last Modified By: Rakesh <; */ var a=''; var t=prompt('Enter Tags separated by commas',''); if(!t) return; var tr=t.split(','); a+='<p><img id="technorati_img" src="" alt="Technorati" /><strong>Technorati: </strong>'; for(var i=0;i<tr.length;i++) { tr[i]=tr[i].replace(/^\s+/,""); tr[i]=tr[i].replace(/\s+$/,""); var tag_text=tr[i]; tr[i]=tr[i].replace(/\s+/g,"+"); if(i > 0){ a+=', '; } a+='<a href='+unescape('%22')+''+tr[i]+unescape('%22')+' rel='+unescape('%22')+'tag'+unescape('%22')+'>'+tag_text+'</a>'; } a+='</p>'; prompt('Copy this html code, Press OK, Then Paste into your blog entry:',a); } )()

For others, technorati tags bookmarklet is a Firefox bookmarklet to tag ur blog posts. First created by Lorelle and later modified by freehogg.

Whats New in this version:
1. Comma seperated tags.
2. Spaces are allowed inside tags, you dont need to use (+) anymore
3. Tag text is more presentable now. i.e. for a tag like “Hindi Movie”, though the internal tag will be like “Hindi+Movie”, but the link
will show it as “Hindi Movie” only

Q1. How to create bookmarklet
Ans: Copy the above script and paste it to Firefox’s address bar. Drag and drop it to bookmarks toolbar. Right click on it, go to properties and verify the location.
The location should contain the above script. Change the name to something related like “Technorati Bookmarklet”.

Q2. How to use it?
Ans: Just click on the bookmark. A dialogue box will open. Enter your tags in it, seperated by commas. (spaces are allowed within tags). It generates
the html code for tags. Copy and paste it in your blog post.

Q3. Why Technorati Tags?
Ans: A simpler explantion is that it adds meaning to the information that you are providing (i.e. your post). Tags work both ways, it helps sites like Technorati
to organize the contents properly and on the other hands it increases your reach to a broader audience.

Q4. But wordpress already has Categories?
Ans: There is a conceptual difference between categories and and tags. Both do almost the same work, but categories are mostly like for your own benefit, while tags are for others. So the categories can be something like “Trip”, while tags will have something like “Ooty”, “Shimla” . Lorelle has a nice article on this

  1. Lorelle VanFossen कहते हैं:

    Neat. I’ve been working on doing a comma version. I’ll give it a test. Could you at least get the name right. 😉

    FYI: freehogg just reprinted what I did. Didn’t really change anything.


  2. Lorelle VanFossen कहते हैं:

    It took a while to get the changes in your code tucked into my layout, but it works. YEAH. Getting the commas in was easy, but I was stuck on replacing the + sign, and I’ve just been too busy to keep working at it. You did wonderful on that. Thank you. I’ll put a highlight on my page for you. Well done.

  3. Rakesh कहते हैं:

    I’ve started using it as of today, and will probably go back to previous posts to tag, if I feel up to it. (It’s a lot of work, there are 1,637 posts!)

    Thanks for the modifications. The only bit I changed was to upload the gif to my own domain and refer to it there, in case you move/delete the gif off your site.

  12. Angela Parker कहते हैं:

    Thanks for the revamp, I’d been using freehoggs version, and I hated the “+” requirement. This makes tagging my entries a breeze and I appreciate the work that all parties have had to get this to the current version 🙂

    Now to go back and tag all the old stuff that I did before the previous version! *sigh*

  13. Mephala कहते हैं:

    Thank you! This really helps a lot. 🙂 I tried Free Hogg’s too on my Blogdrive blogs but this one is a lot better and easier to use.
