Toodledo linkfixer bookmarklets

I’m a very happy user of Toodledo, it’s almost always open on my computer and syncs with Appigo Todo on my iPhone.

I recently suggested that links in task item notes should open in new windows, or at least they should add the option to choose that behavior. Toodledo responded that they originally had this, but some people wanted every link to open in a new window, while others wanted subsequent links to recycle the new window. With both camps complaining, they just removed targets from the links altogether.

Anyway, here are two bookmarklets for Toodledo. Clicking these will modify the task note links to open in a different window.

  • Open each task note link in a new window:
  • Open task note links in a reusable window: ✔°

Note: You will need to click this each time you load the page, or add a new item. Yes it’s clumsy, but this is only a band-aid until Toodledo adds the feature.

    Heya!

    I was totally AGONIZING over this rediculous glitch in the extension. I am going to repost here what I posted in the forum which was a work around. Try this:

    “Just a note:

    While it seems that the firefox extension keeps opening up links in the notefield in the sidebar, I have found a little work-around.

    The iGoogle gadget, which looks EXACTLY the same, doesn’t behave this way, but opens the links in a tab instead of the sidebar. Here are directions.

    (I took the source from the iGoogle gadget and converted it into a link.)

    1. Right click on the bookmarks toolbar and create a new bookmark.
    2. Give it a name (Mine is Toodledo | Sidebar)
    3. Under “Location”, enter this link:

    http://gmodules.com/ig/ifr?url=http://www.toodledo.com/widget/igoogle.php

    4. Make sure you check the box that says “Load this bookmark in the sidebar.

    Now I only have the extension installed for the sake of the “Toodledo this page” option in the right-click context menu. So if anyone knows a bookmarklet for that, please let me go so I can get rid of this extension until they fix it.

    I love toodledo…but this is totally weird.”
