Exactly what text is it talking about when it says "Delete that entire line of text if you want the link to appear after your log out link"? I've tried deleting various various things with no visible change other than the link I'm trying to display not showing up. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 02:13, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

After much inferring and testing of the code used in Kate's tool, that is indeed what it said to do. However, if your computer's cache doesn't clear perfectly every time, like mine, you may not see the link for a matter of hours, or even days. — Lapper (talk) 02:17, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
I can get it to show in other positions. I'm just trying to figure what text "that entire line of text" is, because deleting the top line made it go away rather than move. But I'm beginning to realize that what I was trying to do can't be done. The link's displayed, so I've got the function I wanted, it just doesn't look like I'd prefer. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 02:36, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Here's an example:

If you want "back", "forward" and "refresh" links at the beginning of your quickbar, then copy these three lines to the script, in the right place:

  addQuickbarLink("javascript:history.back()", "back", "userpage");
  addQuickbarLink("javascript:history.forward()", "forward", "userpage");
  addQuickbarLink("javascript:location.reload()", "refresh", "userpage");

Of course, I've already added these links to my quickbar, and here's proof. I mean, I only added this example 'cause I thought it was a good idea for an addon.

Note: If you're using Firefox with "Tab Mix Plus" ([1][2]) (I am, anyway), trying to use the "refresh" link to purge your browser cache will just result in a blank tab being opened. You'll have to use Refresh on your browser toolbar to purge your cache.
