A button to "Use.perl It!"

[ #34220 ]

Want to let people suggest that your wonderful blog entry should be a story on use.Perl, giving it some good Google juice? Use.perl has a bit of javascript to make that work:

<!-- Start use Perl It link -->
<a href="javascript:location.href=''+encodeURIC omponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title)">
<img src="" alt="use Perl" border="0" height="16" width="16"></a> &nbsp;
<a href="javascript:location.href=''+encodeURIC omponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title)">use Perl It!
<!-- End use Perl It link -->

The submitter doesn't need to have an account, but people with an account can add a description of the story they'd like to submit.

  • Could you point me to an example?
    • it looks to be a bookmark submission system that allows users to send links to 'use Perl'. I don't know exactly who would be getting these links? I also don't know what there end goal is. If this is really just like submitting a link to slashdot then it could be interesting to see where this goes.

  • you currently have two links that do the same thing, I would think that it would be easier to include both the image and the text in one link. Was there a reason to use two links?
    • Don't ask me, I just work here. Since I put my stuff on use.Perl, I don't need to use the button. :)

      That's the stuff that "Submit Story" shows you after you've submitted a story. It doesn't really matter what you do with it, I guess. If you want to make it one link, that's fine.
