    Hi,
    I want to add a link on my site to let users set it as their browser's home page.
    How can that be done?

    Thanks

    From what I can tell, you need to use javascript to do this. There are a number of online generators that will create the code for you. Here's one I found: http://www.webmaster-affiliates.net/set-homepage.php

    I can't tell you if it will work or not, but it should be a step in the right direction.

    Thanks, I found those too.
    Seems that there's no way to do that for Firefox also, it's not supportable..

    I have found this code very useful because I setup the sites in a subfolder of the root directory then when I am ready to make it public I make an index.htm (or index.html) file with the code below.
    Change the Welcome text and the URL including the page ID for the home page. I have left an example of a club site which is just about to go public to replace the current site.

    This code sets the site up in a frame so it also hides the page ids etc from view which is specially handy if using Joomla but just a good with WordPress.

    Just copy the code below into Notpad and save as index.htm and upload to the site.

    I hope this helps
