  1. BUG!!: please fix :)

    Hi, found a bug..

    if I am creating a link in my template, and part of that link is created using xpath or css selectors, then the shortening fails.

    I have tested this many times.

    FAIL:
    {#shorten}http://www.example.com?wv_name={#select}.oL.aDm.az9 > span{/select}{/shorten}

    the result is
    https://goo.gl/M6MbiQ
    which redirects to
    http://www.example.com/?wv_name=%7Bc15b38fa0056abc7e%7D

    what is should equal is this:
    http://www.example.com?wv_name=Rebecca_test

    the shortening function IS working, if I use it on an url without CSS selector or xpath.

    so if I shorten like this:
    {#shorten}http://www.example.com?wv_name=Rebecca_test
    {/shorten}

    then it works:
    https://goo.gl/5OOSrw
    which equals
    http://www.example.com?wv_name=Rebecca_test

    The css selector is correct, so no errors there. I also tried…

    • include Base64 ecoding and decoding.

      This is useful for hiding information in the query parameters, for example an email address, when you dont want someone knowing you are tracking them...

      • make a new paste option for html

        just want to paste a gmail signature into gmail formatted....but it all comes out as html code unformatted...

        can you add an option to paste html code formatted??

        I mean - paste the html the way it should look - not as the code

        the reason is because using xpath I get the details about an email I am about to send (recipients email etc) and append my signature links with tracking code specific for that recipient...

        cheers

        Ben

        • make a new paste option for html -UPDATE

          to to show that my previous idea is 100% possible - there is an extension that does this - however it would be so much better if you had this functionality in your extension

          have a look:

            • Any way to capture HTML tables either as HTML (neatly) or ideally, as a markdown table?

              Highlight the given table or place your cursor within (as applicable) and a Template may be activated to capture that table to the clipboard in one of the formats mentioned. As a fallback, CSV would be very helpful as well.

              • Can you post an example on how to filter a list?

                Could you post an example of how to filter for values in a list? I have been unable to figure this out from looking at the guide examples.

                {#scripts}
                // if script.src contains 'amazon'...
                {/scripts}

                I have been unable to achieve this.

                  • Illustrated example - select / copy code - filter

                    Hi, I'm trying to select code from blocks, (ideally) removing line numbers.

                    http://www.xmlmaster.org/en/article/d01/c10/

                    I've had some success with scaper (scrape similar), wondered if I could make a template to select code, if possible trim (x chars of begin @ char)

                    101 illustrated example would be awesome, trying to get insights with the exmple.html now.

                    Thanks

                          • automatic paste for each template

                            GREAT extension big THANKS
                            I got an idea - automatic paste option to be separate for each template
                            what I mean - copy URL may not need automatic paste
                            but if you need a template with today date for example {#dateTime}d F Y{/dateTime} then you want automatic paste
                            thanks

                                I would like to be able to trim "x" amount of characters from the beginning or end of a text result. For example, I'm using xpath to copy a model number from a webpage, but the model number is preceded by "Model #" in the tag I'm pulling (e.g. "Model # 1234"). I would like to trim out "Model #" text so only the actual number is copied to the clipboard.

                                      • Add possibility to create folders in order to catogarize your different templates.

                                        It would be nice if the possibility was added to create folders in the "Templates" menu. This way templates which are used for different projects can be catogarized by project.
                                        Anyhow, I really give your Templates extension a big thumbs upp!! I really like it, and its really making life easier. Thanx man!

                                        • Create a page of all templates created by users

                                          I have no clue what I'm doing on here because I've never coded before. Being able to scroll through templates that others have created would be huge for me and make this service much more usable.

                                            Hi Patrick,

                                            This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time but it will take a lot of time and effort to do and I’m currently swamped with my day job and lots of other open source projects, That said; I am still planning to do this and will try to get around to it soon as I’m passionate about finishing this.

                                            That said; I’m also planning on adding more examples to the Guide section that should help beginners understand how to create simple and complex templates.

                                            Kind regards,
                                            Alasdair
