<a href=www.website.com>Text</a> ... well thats for a hyperlink... but You want to make it your home page??? like so whenever you open opera it loads THAT instead of some other documentation/website?? well i dont have opera but i guess you could enable hidden files and look for the opera configuration files and change the default page to your webpage?? im not sure about that though... do you want like an ICON to your page though or do you want to make it your home page?? ... your question isnt very clear.. the html above makes a LINK...
I want to be able to make links to websites on my desktop and in folders so i can just double click on an icon on my desktop and go there like haveing a link to LinuxQuestions.org on my desktop and just click on it instead of having to open my browser and clicking on my favorites then choosing it from there.
im using mandrake ... and in THERE.. theres an option to create 'new' and then theres a list of types... like a new folder, new txt file.. etc etc and i think thers a link too... RH might be different but give it a try... im gonna go try it
Yes... for me at least, under konqueror, i right click or go to the menu and it says 'create new' > then thers "link to website (URL)" or something like that.. and thats what you want.. it doesnt matter whether you create it in KDE / konqueror or gnome you can still VIEW it in opera so if opera doesnt give you that option cuz i dont think its relaly a good file manager, more of a browser... you could just log onto kde once and open konq and then create if it doesnt work in your gnome apps / opera but theres an option under create new hope i helped!! good luck!!
Yea under gnome theres a thing that says create new launcher but when i put in the website address no matter how i format it and choose link it makes an icon but when i click it it acts like its downloading something and now my darn trash can dosnt work when i click that it does the same thing now.
the downloading thing means its loading the website.. for some strange reason sometimes it takes forever to load a website.... thats what its doing ... since it loads the website then opens the browser or something like that it looks like that [i think..] but thats normal... try like relogging in or something ...
um...I can't remember about Gnome, because I haven't used it for a long time, but in KDE you can right click on the desktop and select new link or something like that. When it asks you where you want to link to, just type http://www.linuxquestions.org/ or something like that. Gnome shouldn't be too different.
I just wrote a local HTML page for my homepage. When I open my browser I can choose which of the 12 most used sites I want to actually connect to. Don't wait for a page to load that you don't want to visit, and anytime I click "home" I can choose again.
