New plug-in "Add favorite"

Von Tobias Arnhold 3.16.2011
Have you ever looked for a solution to create an "add favorite"-button which let the user bookmark your website. You probably found out that each browser uses an own solution for it. I put it all into a nice little dynamic action plug-in. It supports to load only the "add favorite"-function, bookmark the current APEX page, bookmark any other page you define through the plug-in.

Supported browsers: MS Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera

Demo: http://apex.oracle.com/pls/otn/f?p=65560:ADD_FAVORITE



I'm still working on the demo and will release all new plug-ins in the next couple of weeks. For all who want those plug-ins before the release then refer to this post: How can we help Japan?

Have you tested this plugin in IE8 ?

You write in your article supported browsers, MS Internet Explorer.

When I try your demo, then I do get 'Add as Favorite' in Firefox, but not in my IE8 browser...
version MS IE 8.0.6

Hi! I extended the code with this example: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197035%28VS.85%29.aspx

Hope the issue is fixed now.

Hello Tobias, Anonymous here again.

I assume you have updated your online demo?

In that case, I still don't see the Add Favorite window when I try your Demo Application.

I do get the Add Favorite window in Firefox.

Browser version MS IE 8.0.6001
