Can someone improve the favorites plugin?
Posted by: pandaface

I like the kmeleon speed however the favorites plugin stops me using it as my main browser.

First I cannot abandon IE as there are some pages that kmeleon or firefox cannot dispaly properly.

Then I have to use favorites plugin. But if I want to edit favorite, I have to go to favorites dir and it is ...

Can someone add right-click menu to each favorites and favorites sub-dir with delete or rename options?

And for tabs, can there be an option added there for sending it to favorites?

I think MyIE or firefox are both good examples.

The memu item FAVORITES - EDIT will get you to the correct favorites dir and you can rename and delete favorites and folders.

If you right click on the document (not a link) in the tab, there is a popup menu with "Add page to favorites".

If you want the ability to rename the favorite while adding and to choose a sub-folder of Favorites in which to place the new add then I have a macro called FavRenAdd in the macro library. http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/KmmFavRenAdd This works from the Favorites menu.

I too would like to see some work on the IE Favorites plugin. I would try except that I am not a C++ programmer. I hope this explanation is of use to you.

This is what I mean and I don't like it.

Sorry I forgot this. But seems 1.5beta has removed it.

And thanks for your macro. I'll try it on 1.5beta. Hope it works.

To have this options in menus ("Add Page to Favorites") you must enable Favorites plugin, go to Preferences (F2) -> K-Meleon Plugins -> Check IE Favorites plugin option and restart K-Meleon.

Man, of course I did. I'm sorry I misunderstand the replies. It meant document on tab. How can I add "Rename-add" option from James on right-click menu?

BTW, is there a plan to improve favorites plugin?

Try with this in Edit -> Configuration -> Menus;
!DocumentSave{
	&Rename-Add=macros(_FavRenAdd_RenameAdd)|1
}

You can also try adding two lines to the _FavRenAdd_ModMenu macro. We should not add this menu item unless the IE Favorites plugin is running.
_FavRenAdd_ModMenu{
### add another option to Favorites menu if favorites plugin is active
$kFavorites=="true"?setmenu("F&avorites",macro,"&Rename-Add",_FavRenAdd_RenameAdd,1):0;

### show in Document Popup ;
$kFavorites=="true"?setmenu("DocumentSave",macro,"&Rename-Add to Favorites",_FavRenAdd_RenameAdd,1):0;
}

Thank you, Desga2, for the insight in using the menus.cfg file. I had read the instructions many times, but a real example using items I know makes it so much easier to understand. Also I had found Document menu but I had not found the DocumentSave menu. Now I can place items in much better order.

You can found all menus defined by default in K-Meleon\defaults\settings\menus.cfg
Popup menus (or context menus) are at the end of file.

Menu Definition File (kko's documentation updated)

Desga2, can you tell me what it is for? And how can change the menus? For example, how can I remove File menu?

@ pandaface

In the FavRenAdd macro which is in the macro library at http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/KmmFavRenAdd, the following lines put the Rename-Add item into the Favorites dropdown menu if the IE favorites plugin is active.

_FavRenAdd_ModMenu{
### add another option to Favorites menu if favorites plugin is active
$kFavorites=="true"?setmenu("F&avorites",macro,"&Rename-Add",_FavRenAdd_RenameAdd,1):0;
}

If you were to edit the FavRenAdd.kmm file and add the following lines within the _FavRenAdd_ModMenu {} then the "Rename-Add to Favorites" item would be added to documentsave menu which is the menu that appears when you right click on a document.

### show in Document Popup ;
$kFavorites=="true"?setmenu("DocumentSave",macro,"&Rename-Add to Favorites",_FavRenAdd_RenameAdd,1):0;

The code after editing would look like this.

_FavRenAdd_ModMenu{
### add another option to Favorites menu if favorites plugin is active
$kFavorites=="true"?setmenu("F&avorites",macro,"&Rename-Add",_FavRenAdd_RenameAdd,1):0;

### show in Document Popup ;
$kFavorites=="true"?setmenu("DocumentSave",macro,"&Rename-Add to Favorites",_FavRenAdd_RenameAdd,1):0;
}

If you are not used to KM's macro language, please note that the lines that begin with ### are comments. They are there to help my poor memory if I go back to the file after some time has passed. The "_FavRenAdd_ModMenu" is an internal macro and I included that to make it easy to find where the extra line of code should go.

This code in Edit -> Configuration -> Menus, add "Rename-Add" option to context menu (right click menu).

To remove File menu you can add this code lines in Edit -> Configuration -> Menus;
!Main{
	-&File
}

Since 1.1.x, it's possible, and better to uncheck unwanted menu by using a setmenu instruction.

I don't remember how, but you can look at kko's webpage and perhaps on K-Meleon's wiki.

I have updated FavRenAdd in the macro library. "Rename-Add to Favorites", now shows in the DocumentSave popup menu.
