de.icio.us daily posting add ons

Posted on Wednesday, February 14, 2007 02:07 PM by K. Latham
Since I have control over the del.icio.us daily posting now. I've added a few extras to it. If you bookmark any picture from Flickr, del.icio.us will automatically create a thumbnail for it. After looking it over, I was able to do the same thing. Using what I learned there, I've also added a thumbnail for any YouTube video I bookmark. You should see the results of this tweak on the next links post.

Hints for your own coding:
  • You want the image value of this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/programwitch/390375418/

    Take that in put it in IMG http://flickr.com/delicious_thumb.gne?id=390375418 WIDTH=75 HIGHT=75

  • Do almost the same thing for YouTube, except insert the video value into an object.

I may add some other thumbnail gizmos later. Testing and tweaking continues....
