Interesting workaround, but still not what I’m after. I would like to be able to just type callto:xxxx and have it work the system’s url protocol automatically, just like it does with http:// hyperlinks – all seamlessly, and without any extra steps for formatting. It would allow me to make phonebook lists.
I would not raise any hopes of requested added features in the current build. As far as I understand there is work in progress to migrate to another version. See pinned top link – development status. Hence the consideration of “workarounds”.
If you are willing to hack the code to add new url protocol handler .. I used SearchMonkey to search for “url” and first clues are found (amongst many other hits) in
Line Number: 34
Line Number: 270
fd = urllib2.urlopen(cons.NEWER_VERSION_URL, timeout=3)
Line Number: 4448
link_url = self.links_entries['webs']
Line Number: 4449
Line Number: 4450
if len(link_url) < 8\
Line Number: 4451
or (link_url[0:7] != "http://" and link_url[0:8] != "https://"):
Line Number: 4452
link_url = "http://" + link_url
Line Number: 4453
property_value = cons.LINK_TYPE_WEBS + cons.CHAR_SPACE + link_url
I would look there then rebuild cherrytree. But this is detective work.
