    Promote MDN

    Get the web thinking about developing for the web using open standards and open source technologies by showering them with material promoting the Mozilla Developer Network! Wallpapers, stickers, posters, animations, website badges, you name it, link to it from here.

    Want to know more about the MDN or how to help make a great reference Wiki for web technologies?

    WordPress plugin

    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:

    1. When you publish a blog post, it automatically links key terms (such as "HTML", "JavaScript", and "CSS", among others) to the appropriate pages on MDN. This lets you write about Web technologies and automatically link to relevant documentation without having to do anything yourself. It's incredibly useful! The terms and their destination pages on MDN are configured using a special page here on MDN.
    2. 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!

    Installing this plugin is helpful to you and to MDN both, so if you haven't already installed it, you should! If you want to help code on the plugin, go to the wp-promote-mdn GitHub repo.

    JavaScript snippet

    The recommended way to automatically link keywords to MDN pages is the Promote MDN WordPress plugin given above, but if your site or blog isn't running on WordPress, you can embed the JavaScript code below to do the same thing. This script does the same thing as the WordPress plugin; it converts known keywords in the page's content into links to the appropriate documentation on MDN.

    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.

    <script>
        (function (d,f,a) {
            // Your settings here
            var o = {maxLinks: 4, searchElements: ['div', 'h'], linkClass: 'link-to-mdn', extraLinks: {'keywordx': 'http://example.com'}};
    
            var s=d.createElement("script");s.type="text/javascript";if(s.f)
            {s.a=function(){if(s.f=="loaded"||s.f=="complete")
            {s.a=null;PromoteMDN(o)}}}else{s.onload=function()
            {PromoteMDN(o)}}s.src="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/riverspirit/promote-mdn-script/master/promote-mdn.js";
            d.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(s)
        })(document,'readyState','onreadystatechange');
    </script>

    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
