Add GOTO Links Above Your Status Box "Quick Links"

This tip was inspired by the awesome Brian Fløe of MyAppleSpace.

First I attempted to add the links via the Language Editor, pulling all tricks out of my hat. I couldn't get it to format properly. Soooo, onto writing the script to insert the links via the Custom Code Box. This tip turned out to be more complex than I had expected. So please follow the instructions. If you alter the way I've written the code, you will experience issues like the links won't open or breaking the share links.


  • This probably will not look good unless you have your Status Box in a wide column. I did not test narrow column.
  • You MUST have enough space in your Custom Code Box. I did not, and didn't have time to call in an external file.
  • If you ever added the tip code to "Make Sign-In Box Stand Out", you need to remove the .quickpost. Otherwise a shadow and border will be displayed around your new links and it won't look very professional.
  • If you have in fact used the tip for Sign-In/Out Box, make this change:

Change this line: #xg_module_account, .quickpost {
TO this: #xg_module_account {
If you think you installed the tip and can't find the code to change - - Search for this code:
/* Make Sign-In Box Stand Out */
#xg_module_account, .quickpost {
-moz-box-shadow: 0 6px 12px #ababab;
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 6px 12px #ababab;
box-shadow: 0 6px 12px #ababab;
/* For IE 8 */
-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=4, Direction=135, Color='#ababab')"; }


Installation Instructions:

  1. Go to My Network/Tools/Custom Code Box
  2. If you know HTML, you may want to change your links. Be careful not to alter the code, except your links.
  3. Note: Do not alter the special decimal code to display a "middle dot" between links. It looks like this: ·
  4. To make changes, edit the attached Text File: GOTO_Links_AboveShareLinks.txt
  5. Otherwise, just Copy/Paste all of the code from the attached text file and add to your Custom Code Box.
  6. Click on Save.
  7. Done.



Let us know how it goes,
