When you click on the “post 2 del.icio.us Toolbar Button”, you will see the following window. It will display the URL and the webpage title. Notice that the “Replace” option is selected by default…
Make whatever changes that you desire to the information related to your new bookmark and then click on “Post”.
If you are not already logged into your account, you will be prompted to do so when you click on “Post”. As soon as you have finished logging in your new bookmark will be posted.
When your new bookmark has finished posting to Delicious, the following message window will appear for a few moments in the lower right corner of your computer screen.
Checking our Delicious account shows our new bookmark sitting nicely at the top of the list.
