Greetings, this is my first posting and i must say that i am very impressed about the LaunchBar Commander.
And i also like that donationcoder is using SMF as forum system.

My first question is what is the best way to create a dock with weblinks only.
I tried dropping bookmarks directly from my firefox bookmark sidebar, but that does not work.
Then i tried with dropping .url files from IE favorites, that produced 'Error building tree message'.
Do i have to add all my links by hand or is there a simple drag'n'drop solution?

Thanks!

Welcome to the site xpi3000!

Your question is an excellent one, and i'm not sure it's an issue that's been raised before.

But it sure sounds like a case where LaunchBar commander could use a new feature.

Let me go investigate it and see if I can't:
  • make it easy to drag and drop url shortcuts onto LBC
  • fix any bug with dropping .url files
  • add something i've been meaning to add, a simple way to tell LBC to populate a menu with items from a simple .txt file

Wow, such quick reply.
That possibly will be the answer to my browser dock question.

I have now added the ability to drop urls (like from browser icon) and url shortcuts onto launchbar targets.  Will be in next release.

Please add options for url shortcuts like: use site title. for that internet functions would have to be used. only the area before <body> has to be loaded.

you say you dropped a bookmark "folder" -- clearly from the screenshot it created one item with the combined text.. definitely not what you wanted.
i'll have a look at it but can you tell me more about what you mean when you say you dropped a "bokmark folder" -- what exactly did you drag and drop onto LBC?
