[Editing] Linking with protocols/programs (#218)

Postby dordave » Fri Aug 14, 2009 5:57 pm

Allow links to a specific protocol/program like:
irc://irc.abc.com/#abc
spotify:album:abc...

Following the link should have the same effect as entering the text in the run dialog (if there really is an application associated with this protocol).

Oh, that should be easy to do! Actually I'll have to _remove_ something (namely URL check) from the program, and not add to it ;)
Added to my issue tracker as #218.

I'm not sure if:
No URL check in note editor, any runnable link is allowed.Enhancement

from Beta M10.4 Update is meant to address this request. Either way, the links still don't work in the way that I described (pressing F3 on these type of links doesn't have any effect).

I understood the latest changes as follow... pressing F3 with a focused note in the list does work with the http protocol, and the note also has an arrow in the top left to remind us of the presence of a http link. With other protocols, F3 does work after we open a note (doubleclick or enter). For example I tried a "mailto:test@localhost" and it opens my email client, I didn't try other protocols.

ok... didn't notice that pressing F3 with an open note does follow the link...
new request then: have an arrow for non-http links and allow F3 to follow non-http links from the browser as well

Ok I now get it.. I guess I still haven't removed the URL check from all the places, that's why it is not working from the notes list. Will be fixed in the next version.
