Love MDN? Help share the open-Web goodness with fellow web developers by promoting MDN! We have some ideas of ways you can do that. We also have wallpapers, stickers, posters, animations, website badges, you name it; link to it from here.
Share links on social media
Did you find an article on MDN especially helpful? Share it on Twitter, Facebook, Hacker News, reddit, or wherever you share cool stuff you like. It's great if you let us know at @MozDevNet, but certainly not required.
Answer questions with MDN links
Whether the question is on Stackoverflow, or someone is shouting it to the Twitterverse, or your coworker is asking in your team's Slack channel, often answers to questions about web development can be found on MDN. Help the questioner find the best information about web development by sharing a link to MDN that answers their question.
Cite MDN in technical talks
The Promote MDN plugin for WordPress blogs is available to help people who blog about Web technologies or Mozilla-related products both promote their own blogs as well as MDN itself. It works in two ways:
- A special "Notify Mozilla of this post" checkbox is added to post editing pages; this option sends an email to the PR and MDN teams at Mozilla, so we can, if appropriate, mention your blog post in promotional material, tweet about it, and so forth. Checking this box doesn't guarantee a mention, but it will certainly call it to the attention of the right people!
You can configure the maximum number of keywords to turn into links by changing the value of
maxLinks in the options object,
o. You can also specify the elements to search, the class to use for the created link, and a set of additional keywords and target URLs to scan for.
To use this snippet, just embed it right before your closing
</body> tag at the end of your content.
This snippet loads the primary code that does all the real work from Github. If you would prefer to host that code on your server yourself (for security, performance, etc.), just download the code from Github, add it to your site, and adjust the URL on line 9 of the code above to match.
Web site banner images
If you'd like to link to MDN from your web site using a promotional image, we have a number of them to choose from:
