Add "URL alias" feature…



  • Please add "URL alias" feature, like in Maxthon browser. It is a kind of bookmark. Example, we can customize to type "p" to go to paypal.com. EDIT: So this feature is called nicknames in Vivaldi. However, I would like to see all nicknames organized and presented as a list in settings, all managed in one place, like how they are with "search engines" in settings. Also, we should be able to add nicknames in settings, without requiring them to be tied to any bookmarks. Example from Maxthon browser... [img]http://s13.postimg.org/fodey0rxz/Untitled.png[/img]



  • If I understand you correctly, the feature already exists. Edit your bookmarks in the panel to add a Nickname.

  • search engines can do what you look for, I have for example dl to open vivaldi://downloads



  • thanks for pointing that out. however, i want a separate settings section for nicknames, for better management.



  • @TsunamiZ:

    I don't see how that's going to work.

    Organising of bookmarks in the Bookmarks Panel by nickname, ascending or descending order, is already available.

  • the way it currently works in vivaldi is poor and hard to manage. i want to be able to see and manage just a concise list of nicknames, like how they are with "search engines" in settings. see my first post again for a screenshot example from maxthon.

    Out of all users in the last year and a half, you are the only one to ever ask for this.

    It's not like it's a bad idea or anything, but features that have a very high level of demand will be considered first.



  • @TsunamiZ:

    see my first post again for a screenshot example from maxthon.

    This could be done with keyboard shortcuts as in Opera 12.17. With all shortcuts in one place you won't try to assign nicknames to shortcuts already used for commands.

    I added two requests to my own Feature Requests post

    [ol]

    • Commands for "Go to page" and "Execute program"
    • Mnemonic shortcuts to allow more than one letter for shortcuts, like nicknames, but they don't need to be entered in the URL field. This is faster as they can be executed from the page.
      [/ol]


  • as i mentioned before, i want a dedicated settings section for managing nicknames. i don't want them mixed with anything else, because that would just add clutter to the management.
