So it seems some of you are having trouble fluently accessing Club Dragon.
As you already know, you can bookmark it, google it, enter the address manually, clicking on the address bar for the dropdown menu or even make your own homepage with simple HTML like mine. (Ex:http://www.clubdrago...HomepageV6.html) (May look bad on some screen resolutions)
Some of you already knows this, for those who dont, you can easily create a firefox shortcut and add a function that will send you directly to Club Dragon.
Here's two shortcuts i've made that you can download and use :
Club Dragon Firefox shortcut for Windows 32bit (x86)
Club Dragon Firefox shortcut for Windows 64bit (x64)
Also here's a fantastic icon provided by Rory : http://clubdragon.org/favicon.ico
And the preview :
If you're interested in making your own shortcuts, here's a little help..
First of all you need to find your firefox.exe and right click on it and choose "Create shortcut".
Alternatively you can drag and drop your firefox.exe with the right click and choose "Create shortcuts here" or simply find an already made firefox shortcut and copy it.
Then go into the properties of that shortcut (Right click then "Properties")
You should see something similar to the picture below.
On that picture, i've highlighted the "Target" area.
It is also a Windows 64bit shortcut and therefore use a different address in the target area.
A regular Windows 64bit target area for firefox should look like this : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
While a regular Windows 32bit target area for firefox would look like this : "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
This address should always be surrounded by " "
To add an argument to your shortcut, simply add your command at the end of it, preceded by a space.
A modified shortcut for firefox should look like this : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -console
For a list of functions, you can refer to : http://kb.mozillazin..._line_arguments
I strongly suggest never to modify "Start In" unless you have multiple firefox installed or if you fire it from another program.
Although adding and removing hotkeys seems to work fine on Windows 7.
(Adding and removing hotkey may reset previous default hotkeys. (If you removed Windows hotkeys like pressing F1 not firing help system, it will now fire the help system))
Also if you choose a custom Icon, do not move it from it's location afterwards.
It is not like an EXE where the icon is inside of it, it'll simply link the icon to the shortcut.
Bleh! I just realized I did a whole post without a single smiley.. can't do that now can i!
Player 2 FTW. We still were the best!
