    Make Homepage

    Jens Peermann
      In the good old days there used to be a link on most web pages reading "Make (this siite) Your Homepage". I would like to have that on my site too, but don't know the code to do that. So I looked at other sites to look up the code they use, but couldn't find this link on any of them. Is that simply because this has gone out of style or is it just not possible to write a code that is executed by all browsers that are available now?

      Looking forward to your answers.

          Why bother? I mean, I know you say "I would like to have that", but nobody
          will really use it. It's so ... 90's.

            When I used to see those links my first reaction was "how arrogant". To me
            it says, "this page is so important I know you will want to use it as your
            personal homepage". Yuk!

            If the page appeals to the visitor that much they'll figure out how to visit
            it often.

              Your better off giving them a "Bookmark This Page" link. Google for
              "javascript bookmark this page" and you will have lots to try out.

                Oy vey...she wasnt asking permission, she was just asking how to do it...

                I've never done it, and im still searching for the facts, but I am pretty
                sure that in the entire history of the internet, no one (not counting
                grandmothers or the web designer themselves) has ever pushed that button
                when it was available.

                But if you reall need to, look here
                http://javascript.internet.com/page-details/set-homepage-link.html

                Dooza had a better suggestion, which is to set a button to prompt someone to
                bookmark your page.

                  And where in my response to Murray did you determine I was denying the OP
                  permission?
