Microsoft Internet Explorer 6
only (version 7 or later users - see NOTE paragraph above)
- Download the instructions (Microsoft Word doc) here and print them.
- Download the compressed .zip file which contains the bookmarklets here, and save it to your computer (DON'T extract/uncompress them at this point).
- Follow the rest of the instructions in the Word doc.
(Firefox is also recommended for bookmarklets if you have an Apple/Mac computer - download Firefox here and follow the steps in the installation wizard. Upon initial launch, it will ask whether to import your bookmarks from another web browser, if you have one installed. This is up to you, but you can skip it for the purposes of the bookmarklets because you will be importing them a different way below. These instructions are for Firefox v3.01 on a PC - I do not have a Mac to test this.)
- Save this file, seminarfirefoxbookmarklets.html, to your desktop or other convenient location on your computer/network.
- In Firefox, under Bookmarks menu, select Organize Bookmarks, which launches the Bookmarks Manager window.
- In Bookmarks Manager, under File menu, select Import. Then select From File and click Next button. Navigate to
seminarfirefoxbookmarklets.html, highlight it and click Open button. (The bookmarklets will have imported.)
- In the Bookmarks Manager window, click on the Seminar folder icon, hold down the mouse, and drag it up and to the left directly onto the Bookmarks Toolbar folder icon.
- Close the window to return to the main Firefox browser window. You should see a folder icon called Seminar on your top (bookmarks) toolbar. Click to open the subfolder and your bookmarklets are ready for use!
- If you do not see the bookmarks toolbar, then go under the View menu, select Toolbars, and see if a checkmark appears before Bookmarks Toolbar. If not, click on Bookmarks Toolbar to do so and now you will see the Seminar icon there.
- Download the compressed .zip file which contains the bookmarklets here, and save it to your computer.
- Extract/uncompress all files in the zip (make sure "use folder names" checkbox is selected) and save to your desktop or other convenient location. This will create a folder called Seminar with some subfolders in it.
- In the File menu of Opera, select Import and Export -> Internet Explorer Favorites. Navigate to the Seminar folder (the top-level Seminar folder) and select it to import.
- In the Bookmarks menu of Opera, select Manage Bookmarks. You will see a folder called Internet Explorer Favorites.
- Right mouse click on that folder and select Properties. Rename it Seminar (or some other logical name).
- In the View menu of Opera, select Toolbars -> Personal Bar (if it is not already checked/displayed)
- Drag the Seminar bookmarklets folder to your Opera personal toolbar. Now you can conveniently access any bookmarklets by clicking on the Seminar icon atop your browser and selecting the desired bookmarklet within the expandable menu of Seminar subfolders
- You may wish to rename the subfolders to more logical category names (rather than the numbers) using the method in step 5.
Safari, Netscape, Flock, Thunderbird, etc.
- The Safari browser (was Apple/Macintosh-only up to v3, now also available for Windows computers) is a bit tricky. We recommend you follow the Mozilla Firefox instructions to the left.
- Netscape, Flock and Thunderbird users should be able to install and run the Firefox version of the bookmarklets (see steps under Mozilla Firefox).
