Adding a bookmark from a web page to a community

Use the bookmark button control provided by IBM® Connections to add the Add Bookmark button to your web browser. Then, when you visit a web page that you want to bookmark, you can click the button to add that page as a bookmark to your community.

Before you begin

Before adding a bookmark to a community by using the Add Bookmark button, you must add the button control to your web browser. To do so, complete the following steps:
  1. Click Bookmarking Tools in the IBM Connections footer.
  2. Follow the instructions in the page to add the Add Bookmark button to your web browser.

Procedure

To add a bookmark to a community from the website that you want to bookmark, complete the following steps.

  1. From a web page that you want to bookmark, click Add Bookmark.
  2. Add details about the web page in the Add Bookmark page. However, most websites supply details such as title and description, you can edit these if they are available.
  3. To specify the community to which you want to add the bookmark, from the Add to Communities tab, select a community from the list displayed in the Community field.
  4. Select Add to important bookmarks to add the link to the list of important bookmarks on the community's Overview page.
    Note: A community can have a maximum of 100 important bookmarks.
  5. Click Save to add the bookmark to the community

Results

The bookmark is added to the community.
Tip: You may find that web pages change over time, causing your bookmarks to break. If this happens, delete the old bookmark, and add the revised bookmark again. To delete a bookmark, click Bookmarks on the community's Overview page to retrieve the list of bookmarks. Next to the bookmark that you want to remove, click More > Delete > OK to confirm that you want to delete the bookmark.
