FAQ: How to add "Nodes You Wrote" to your personal nodelet

It took me a while to figure this out, and I couldn't find it documented anywhere, so for the benefit of other people:

Here's how to add a link to "Nodes You Wrote" in your Personal Nodelet.

Go to your User Settings, and in a new link field, enter <a href="?node_id=6364&user=gaal">Nodes You Wrote</a> (together with all the HTML. Also, obviously, you should substitute gaal with your username.) Press submit. That's it, you're set.

(Thanks to beable for the hint.)

    That's exactly how to do it. Or for the lazy (like me), turn on the "Find Nodes" nodelet, where "Nodes You Wrote" is the first item in that nodelet. But I like your suggestion, as some of what is in "Find Nodes" is redundant (such as Super Search.

    There's also the alternative link type, "href" or "link". Both do exactly the same thing. The advantage, such as it is, is that you don't need to carefully craft the HTML. Examples:
    [href://?node_id=6364&user=gaal|Nodes gaal wrote]
    Nodes gaal wrote
    [link://?node_id=6364&user=gaal|Nodes gaal wrote]
    Nodes gaal wrote

    In principle, if you manually create a HTML link, you really ought to escape the ampersand, or use use the alternative semicolon instead. Because "user" isn't a recognized entity name, you can generally disregard this advice, though technically, your HTML won't validate. If you even care about that.

    If you use the link types as given above, the site will do the escaping for you.
