Nice. As others say, it takes over where COLT left off.
It negates my main reason for not updating Firefox.
I need to work out how to configure it in the same way. (Hence the ***.) But that is down to me rather than the app.
Thanks for using the extension and the review. I have written some documentation, available at https://evilnickname.github.io/link-text-location-copier, but if you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
I use this addon to cite text from websites with the page URL. Unfortunately, "Context dependant custom format variables" stopped copying URL's for plain text, after a Firefox update.
I checked on the author's page for the addon: https://evilnickname.github.io/link-text-location-copier/
It offered "Context independant custom format variables" in a second table. I used those. Changing the "plain text" menu format works perfectly (even, at the moment, in Nightly):
%selection% — %N — %pagetitle% — %N — %pageurl%
Hi, I recently found out there was a little bug for %U when used with selections. Version 1.7.2 should fix this problem.
Neat addon that could be very useful. Unfortunately, since I set dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled to false, the addon won't work for me, and I'm not going to enable that just for this. It would be great if it could be made to work without requiring that. One piece of advice for the author: have it check the status of that setting and warn if it's disabled. I spent a few minutes trying to get it working and was about to leave a 1-star review thinking it wasn't doing anything.
A very good replacement for COLT
very very very good replacement for colt which i loved also thank you so much
Great replace for CoLT! Version 1.4.4. works fine!
Sehr gut, aber es fehlt noch eine Kleinigkeit: wenn man auf eine URL mit Bild klickt, sollten die URL des Bildes, der Alternativtext und die eigentliche URL zur Verfügung stehen. Wir brauchen also noch ein "%I"-Tag! Außerdem sollte die Übesetzung der Tags auch mehrfach funktionieren (mehrere %U in einer Zeile).
English: very good, only a simple function is missing. If you click on a link with picture, the picture URL, alternative text and underlying URL should be copied. So we need something like an "%I"-Tag. And the tags should be replaced in all occurences (like more than one %U in a line of text).
€: I used "Make Link" before and it helps copying product links in to forum BB-code. So you have a picture, description (alternative text) and URL all in one with one click.
Thanks for your review. In the new version (1.4.2, released moments ago), I made it possible to use the same 'tag' multiple times. It never occurred to me to think of that, so thanks for bringing it up.
Support for copying images is on my road map, but I'm still not sure how to do that in a way that makes sense.
Update: I've added a %I variable, that will return the image url. I really have to think about adding some conditional logic to the templates to make it really useful, but it's a start.
Thanks for this--nice options, and it works!
Time saver when compiling bibliography-references, contributing meaningful links in forums, and creating "how-to" docs.
I like CoLT too, thanks for creation.
Danke für die Deutsche Übersetzung und den BB Code.
Useful add-on for blogger...
Markdown or custom pattern support will make it great!
Markdown (and BB Code) is included in the next version (1.1.0). I'm looking into how to do custom patterns.
