URLs in Task Name


Posted: Feb 26, 2009

Is there anyway to create a clickable link in the Task Name. I have a number of tasks that require going to a specific URL but I haven't found a way to make them links if they are in the task name. I've tried with both FF and IE and tried with and without HTML tags. Not possible? Or, am I missing something?

You can put the link in the Task's note and it will be clickable.

The task name can't be clickable, because clicking on it switches it into edit mode. As Claudio said, you can put the link into the note and it will work.

If you're in Firefox, try out one of these add-ons:

take me to this url:

URL link:

Fetch text URL:

They all give you the option to follow non-clickable urls, although I'm not certain they would all work with the urls in the task name since it might not be treated like normal text. "URL link" says it works on links in edit boxes, so that might work with Toodledo. I haven't tried any of them myself yet.

Actually, reading the comments on for one of those add-ons, I've realised you can just select the text of the url and drag it to the address bar or a tab and it opens (when I think about it, that's obvious, it just hadn't occured to me before!). I've tried this with an url in a task title and it works, and it's just as quick and easy as using one of the extensions I just mentioned. OK, so it's still just a tiny bit less simple than just clicking on the link, but since that would interfere with the way that the task title is selected in Toodledo, it seems like a reasonable workaround.
