"Add to LQ Bookmarks" Button


I run a Gentoo Community News site. In right column of the site I have a "Subscribe" block. There are buttons that users can click on to add the RSS feed to bloglines, newsgator, etc and there are buttons to bookmark the site on social bookmarking sites like del.icio.us. The del.icio.us link looks like this:

http://del.icio.us/post?url=http://l...mmunity%20News

Is there something similar for LQ Bookmarks where a user can click a button on my site to bookmark it on LQ Bookmarks? Having a button might also help promote LQ Bookmarks.

LQ Bookmarks
Social Bookmarking, tagging and annotating all things Linux and Open Source

LQ bookmarks allows you to bookmark, tag, annotate and share links to Open Source and Linux related sites. It also allows you to access your bookmarks from any browser on any machine. The ability to share and see what others are sharing is called social bookmarking.
The easiest way to add a bookmark is by dragging the bookmarklet found here to your browser toolbar.
My emphasis

Actually, despite it being at the top of the page and in it's own box, it's not easily distinguishable from the rest of the page. Could it be better emphasised Jeremy?

There is a link on LQ too, under thread tools. We'll be moving it near the digg/del.ici.us links once we update it to point to the new site.

I did see that. However, it is not what I am asking for. I asked if there was or will be a button I could put on my website so that a user can click on it and add my site to their LQ Bookmarks.

re the buttons above the "back to top" link- can they be centred above the links there? thanks.

(just a little stylistic niggle. )

They are centered in the space they are in, not in relation to the links below them.

it just looks bad...

I can see how they are centred, and the links are two, it just looks out of kilter... it's kind of weird because it looks like the three images would fit nicely over the "back to top" thing.

Anyway, I can live with it.

I really like the little penguin ? in that spot.
