using delicious links in your web page

Do you have a Delicious account with all kinds of great links that you'd like to share with others via your website or blog?

Delicious provides several tools on their website to make this easy to do.
  1. Click on Help in the upper right hand corner
  2. Click on Bookmarking buttons and add-ons for your browser or website? under Need Tools?
  3. Select the tool you want and copy and paste the html code into your web page/blog editor. You'll need to use the Edit Html section.
  4. Warning - these rely on CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to make them look pretty and aligned. What you have set in your blog or web page will probably override the CSS from Delicious. This can make it look really goofy. That's one of the reasons I changed the template for this blog.

    Following are examples of Linkrolls and Tagrolls and how they'll look integrated into a blog.
Linkrolls will provide access to some of your recent bookmark additions:

Tagrolls put your tags into a tag cloud. The larger tags are used more frequently:

You can play around with some of the settings to customize for your website.
