Bookmarklets are smart bookmarks. They usually allow one to perform complex task via a single click (bookmark-toolbar).


Inspired by Dokuwiki-Weblog.

This bookmarklet directly POSTS to DokuWiki - it opens up a popup-window to create/preview a DokuWiki page about the currently browsed page, using the current selection as wiki-page text.

javascript:Q=document.selection?document.selection.createRange().text:document.getSelection();L=location.href;D=document.title;d=new Date();I=d.getFullYear()+':'+(d.getUTCMonth()+1)+'_'+d.getUTCDay()+'_'+d.getUTCHours()+''+d.getUTCMinutes()+''+d.getUTCSeconds();'','dokuwikiadd','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,toolbars=yes,width=640,height=420,left=200,top=160,status=yes');f=myWindow.document.createElement('form');f.method='post';f.action=''+I;i0=document.createElement('input');i0.type='hidden';'wikitext';i0.value='===== '+D+' =====\n  * '+L+'\n'+Q+'\n{{tag>Bookmark}}';i1=document.createElement('input');i1.type='hidden';'do';i1.value='preview';f.appendChild(i0);f.appendChild(i1);b=myWindow.document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0]; b.appendChild(f); f.submit();

This script may be too long for some browsers, see dokubookmark for an alternative.

Modify the action URL (, ID (wiki:weblog:<DATE>) and the wiki-page template wikitext=.. to your preference.

Note: the date syntax is not the same as the Dokuwiki-Weblog mentioned above. javascript's UTCMonth and UTCDay are values 1-12 and 1-31 rather than 01-12 or 01-31.

Misc Bookmarklets

Javascript bookmarklet to HTTP-POST.
