Link Code Insert: A GreaseMonkey UserScript

By • Jul 20th, 2009 • Category: Firefox, JavaScript, Scripts


Link Code Insert inserts the HTML code for creating a link at the active element location when the user presses Ctrl+Alt+A. I use it a lot when I am writing a comment and want to add a link. Just select the text you want to link and the userscript will add the HTML code ‘<a href="">‘ before the selected text and a ‘</a>‘ after it.

Technically, this is a UserScript – and not a plugin. But I prefer to think of a userscript as a plugin of a plugin. So I guess it can be included in the Plugin Week.

Note: You must be using Firefox and must have installed GreaseMonkey for this script to work.

    Well, its a nice tip for making hyperlinks on the fly but I generally refrain from using greasemonkey coz it makes my FF bulky and slower.

  2. So I guess thats the end of the plugin week. What did you learn this time?
