        This is not the same as the "subscribe" feature; this actually puts a bookmark in the user's Favourites list (in IE) or tells them to press Ctrl-D to add it to their Netscape bookmarks.

        Near the end of the showthread template in 2.2.6, you will find
        Code:
        <!-- thread options links -->
        You need to add the code
        Code:
        <img src="images/bookmark.gif" border="0" alt="" align="absmiddle"> <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" src="bookmark.js"></script>
        wherever you find most pleasing, and then put the attached bookmark.js JavaScript file in your main directory.

        This is the contents of bookmark.js:
        Code:
        if ((navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer") && (parseInt(navigator.appVersion) >= 4)) {
        	var url=window.location.href;
        	var title="$threadtitle";
        	document.write('<A HREF="javascript:window.ext');
        	document.write('ernal.AddFavorite(url,title);" ');
        	document.write('onMouseOver=" window.status=');
        	document.write("'Bookmark this thread!'; return true ");
        	document.write('"onMouseOut=" window.status=');
        	document.write("' '; return true ");
        	document.write('">Click here to bookmark this thread!</a>');
        } else {
        	var msg = "Bookmark this thread!";
        	if(navigator.appName == "Netscape") msg += "  (CTRL-D)";
        	document.write(msg);
        }
        I also put a couple of possible bookmark pic's in there for you.

          Actually, the thread title part wouldn't work because bookmark.js isn't parsed by vBulletin

            None of my IE users have ever said anythimg to me! It used to be in the template; I guess that I will put it back.

            So, just paste the bookmark.js code into your showthread template; then vBulletin will parse $threadtitle as usual.
