Add To Favorites (IE)

<a href="" onclick="window.external.AddFavorite(this.href,this.innerHTML);">Add Favorite and Go-To-There</a>

The first param to AddFavorite is the URL, the second the text to offer up for saving. So this inline JavaScript is reusable in the sense that it will pull those values dynamically from the anchor link itself.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

There's a whole bunch of content on CSS-Tricks.
