Ever wished it was quicker to navigate around your site? If you're anything like me you get tired of having to move the mouse all around screens, and wait for half a dozen page loads, to get where you're going. We do have an admin menu and sitemap in ocPortal, but still I find navigating web apps slower than navigating desktop apps.

Coming to the rescue is a simple new ocPortal 4 addon that will export your whole sitemap to your web browsers bookmarks, so you can easily access anything on it. All you need to do is:
  • put the attached PHP file in your adminzone/pages/minimodules_custom directory
  • call up /adminzone/?page=admin_generate_bookmarks
  • save the HTML file to your desktop
  • tell your web browser to import the HTML file as bookmarks/favorites (it's a Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox format bookmarks file)
  • And that's it- you'll be able to access all your links from a submenu of your regular browser bookmarks.

(Note that there is no magic syncing here, so you might want to delete and reimport from time to time.)

Now that I think about it, with IE8 or Firefox 3 you should be able to just type in the title of a screen (e.g. "Add download") to the address bar, and it should pull up the link automatically. Now that's cool :).

(IE8 and Firefox 3 search bookmark titles in order to provide auto-complete links in the address bar).

Oh neat thanks.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
