Are you Delicious?


Let's set up a delicious account.
  1. Go to del.icio.us.com.
  2. Click on "register".
  3. Fill in username, full name, and password. (Hint: Choose a username and password that is easily remembered by you, but not the one you use for banks, etc. Use the same username and password for all your applications.)
  4. Click "register".
At Home, set up a delicious button.
  1. Log in to delicious and your account.
  2. Click on "settings" on the top right.
  3. On the left sidebar, under "Settings" click the blue FAQs hyperlink.
  4. Under "the posting buttons", click on "How do I install the buttons again, now that I'm using a different browser or computer?"
  5. Follow the directions to load buttons onto your browser toolbar. Start at "Step Two of Installation" at the top of the page.
  6. Use "tag" when you are on a website that you want to keep. Be sure to network to other people who would be interested in the same site. Use "delicious" when you want to quickly link to your account.
