HTML viewer alias titles customizable?
« on: June 09, 2008, 08:38:14 AM »
When using

Example.com/$$1 | htmlviewurl http://www.example.com/$$1

within an alias group "Group" the "Location" entry in the result list is only "Group".
Using

Example.com/$$1 | http://www.example.com/$$1

gives "http://www.example.com/$$1" (with $$1 replaced with what has been entered).
This behaviour is also visible when using "igo".

Is it possible to set the title manually?

The location column is trying to show you the alias group name or alias name where the alias is from.

So you want to override that on a per-alias basis so you can display something custom, is that right?

Note this has nothing to do with the html view, it happens with all alias results.  Or am I misunderstanding something?

Here is a screenshot describing my situation.
As you can see only "translate" is shown when using htmlviewurl but the URL is shown when not using it.

P.S.: No it's not Vista!

Yes :)
You could add another parameter: /TITLE or /LOCATION etc. to let the user decide what should be shown.
This would also be backwards compatible!
