Thought I'd start a thread for tips and tricks of using Web Link Captor, and for sharing custom scripts that people have written.



Here's a quick trick:
If you have a list of urls, you can get WLC to make a nice list for you that automatically fetches the web page titles for each and produces a nice formatted list from them.

Example, inputs:
Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-screen-capture-utility.htm
  2. http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2011/12/5-alternatives-to-paypal/
  3. http://www.rgdot.com/bl/

Now i set my output format to: --format bbcode --hrlink --hrtitle --rmax 0 --hlist

And click run, and the result is:



I'd like to invite anyone who has written a custom script/tool for Web Link Captor to please share it.  And I'm happy to help people get started writing them -- so just holler if you get stuck.

One thing that would be nice is if someone would implement a search script to query google's *NEW* search api -- I somehow used the old one.

If any python coder wants to take a try at it, just start with the skeleton of code in my google search script and go from there, and ask me any questions  thumbs up
