Description Dominique Devriese 2004-02-28 20:06:35 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources


Note: this is a forward from the following Debian bug report:

this is from the help for "Enhanced Browsing/Web Shortcuts":
|You can also have shortcuts without parameters. Suppose the URI was
|file:/home/me/mydocs/kofficefiles/kword and the shortcut was mykword.
|Then, typing mykword: is the same as typing the complete URI. Note
|that there is nothing after the colon when typing the shortcut, but
|the colon is still required in order for the shortcut to be recognized
|as such.

I have tried this. "mykword:" gives the error message "Malformed URL
http://mykword:". If I enter a random character after the colon, the
shortcut works.

It would be sensible if the software would behave as the docs say.

Works in KDE-4.4.

There's a nice warning when creating the shortcut, and when using it it works as expected.

Thanks for the report.
