cedardoc, here is an example of using it from an alias, courtesy of nod5.  This goes in the results list, all one line (as it's just one result):

showtest | showhtml <a href='farr://htmlviewurl exacttimenow.com'><img src='%FARRDIR%\AliasGroups\Installed\Core_Aliases\icons\farr\core-internet_www.ico'></a><br>click the image to Internal Surf to exacttimenow.com<br><br><a href='farr://restartsearch gowebpage'>use internal command to launch FARR webpage in external browser</a>

the important thing to notice is that one uses the showhtml command to show raw html code in the output window.  you can use regular hyperlinks to go to web pages, but to make links to run stuff from within farr you use <a href="farr://"> link.

That works great, thanks. 

For those interested in tiddlywiki, there's a small one here http://sidebarnotes.tiddlyspot.com/ (you can download it from that site to reside on your local machine) that pops up pretty quickly and so far seems to function normally.  Its designed to run in the sidebar in firefox, but I think its actually more handy in FARR as you can access it fast without needing firefox to be open at the time. 

One thing, it (FARR) won't allow you to save changes to the local file.  Is that something that is fixable?

Thanks again,
DP

cedardoc,
you probably don't realize but one of the first things we did to demo the new html capabilities of FARR was integrate a tiddlywiki and a gtdwiki into FARR and it comes included with the latest FARR distribution :)

See:
http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=13673.0

So you shouldnt have to do anything but bring up farr and type:
tiwi
Or type:
gwp

I am yet having tiny fonts problem with tiwi and gwp :( None of the browsers show tiny font issue when I double click local html files.

You're right (of course) - I actually found that in amongst the different alias groups shortly after my post ("D'oh!")

1. any answer / trick to get a TW to save?
2. Kartal says his fonts are too small, and when I do that gwp thing, my fonts are quite large... (FYI)

karal, can you try opening normal internet explorer, and change font size to large, then exit and restart farr.  see if it makes any difference.

Ok that worked. I increased the font size then decreased, increased and decreased to medium size and problem is gone for now. Althou you might want to supply font size control in the html viwer with the right click if you can.
