New ways to link

A new feature made its way onto the DearDiary system a few days ago. We’ve kept it quiet until now to make sure it was working properly, but given that its taken about 2000 pages a day and we’ve not heard any nasty comments into support we might as well officially announce it… Though those of you that were awake for the previous entry may have already noticed it anyway!

To link to your diary, from any other page anywhere on the net, simply insert one (or more!) of the following HTML snippets;

  • <A HREF="https://www.deardiary.net/show/diaries/username">My Diary</A>

  • <A HREF="https://www.deardiary.net/show/diaries/username/latest">My Diary’s Latest Entry</A>

  • <A HREF="https://www.deardiary.net/show/diaries/username/welcome">My Diary’s Welcome Page</A>

  • <A HREF="https://www.deardiary.net/show/diaries/username/random">My Diary, a Random Entry</A>– random entry

Replace username with your specific username of course 🙂 and feel free to modify the actual text. Alternatively, if you want a graphic automatically generated which will show people whether you have updated today, check the Link Manager link on your members button bar when you are logged in!
