Speed Dial param element

By Opera Software

From Opera 15 onward, Opera 11 & 12’s extension format is no longer supported, and instead, we’ve switched to Chromium’s extension model. Check out our new documentation for developing extensions for Opera 15 and higher and start building your own extensions.


The Speed Dial feature request takes one parameter whose name attribute value is the string url and whose value attribute value is a valid non-empty URL potentially surrounded by spaces. The param element is defined in the W3C Widgets specification.

A developer is required to include the url parameter with a Speed Dial feature request to allow synchronization Opera Link. Without one, the extension will be treated as invalid.


  • name: Name of a parameter; value for an Opera Speed Dial feature is url.
  • value: URL; indicates the URL to open when the Speed Dial cell is clicked.


This examples shows how to make a Speed Dial feature request.

<!-- config.xml -->
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"
  <feature name="opera:speeddial" required="false">
    <param name="url" value="http://opera.com"/>
