[New Page] Bookmarklets

Thu Jun 05, 2014 12:19 am

I am building a wiki page on Bookmarklets.

If anyone has created or is currently using any bookmarklets related to Waze map editing or other related matters, consider posting your content here and we can include it in the wiki page.

There are some bookmarklets here which could be moved: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Map_Editing_ ... et_Scripts

Thanks. Forgot about those.

I will likely move those to the new page and provide a link from this one you noted.

I am working on creating a template that will enable code posting to stay inside the Wiki view frame (won't bleed past the right edge). I have a raw style I will use in the mean time on the new page if anyone wants to use that for now on other pages.

Kent,
Thanks for this page!

re: Chrome under Adding to a browser

This is one correct procedure. I have used exactly this method to add bookmarklets, with the small exception that I only have to hover "Bookmarks" in the main menu to see and click "Bookmark Manager". I don't know if that counts as "verification" or not, but there you go. :)

First line, the "three horizontal bars button" (here referred to as "Customization and control Google Chrome" menu button) is repeatedly referred to in Chrome help as simply "Chrome menu button". Don't know if an image would be overkill, but throwing it out there....

May I suggest that the line:
In the "Name" box, enter "Wazer Profile" or any name you prefer
more specifically define that we are naming the Bookmarklet currently being created? This could be as simple as adding "for the new bookmarklet" to the end of the sentence. Minor point, but could be confusing for someone doing this the very first time.

Finally, there's a bookmarklet for creating Wazeto links here that could be added, though I have yet to actually get it to function 100%, as much as I'd dearly like it to. Apparently it works for Alan. (Still wish someone would add a similar capability to an existing plugin.)

I think your general proposals make sense. Do you want to edit directly, or do you need my help?

I made the text changes, (verify?) but if you were suggesting that adding the other bookmarklet was agreeable, that looks like it's beyond my beginning Wikiskills, with the whole Talk page bit. Maybe I'm just intimidated because I'm still finding my feet in the Wiki, and it's nowhere near as complicated as I'm thinking it is....

Already added the image of the Chrome menu icon. Working on adding some more text to the Chrome instructions. I've been installing non-play store supported scripts into Chrome for some time when playing web browser based games.

There are two different ways to access the Bookmarks Manager. I'll add them both.

Done. Check it out and let me know. There is another way of adding bookmarlets, but I have to test it to see.
