Add URL field

Hi,

I'm using and loving the QuickAdd feature from within Safari and Firefox.

Could you change the feature to also save the URL to the task URL property?

One more version of the bookmarklet:

- uses the mobile version of the UI
- uses browser's current URL in the new task's URL field
- if you have selected text, uses that as the task name, otherwise it uses the Page Title

java_script:(function(){h='m.rememberthemilk.com';p='/add';if(window.getSelection){t=window.getSelection();}else%20if(document.getSelection){t=document.getSelection();}else%20if(document.selection){t=document.selection.createRange().text;};cp='http://'+h+p+'?name='+((null==t||t==""||t==undefined)?encodeURIComponent(document.title):t)+'&url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href);w=window.open(cp,'addwindow','status=no,toolbar=no,width=250,height=560,resizable=yes');setTimeout(function(){w.focus();},500);})();

NOTE: remove the "_" in java_script"

Basically you make your own Quick Add and use the mobile site (you need to log in once) on your computer.

I'm surprised that there is still not official support for this. I find myself revisiting this issue every 6 months.

Workaround doesn't work for me (probably again - as I said, this comes up a couple times a year). It asks for a login every time, and opens to a blank form.

Thanks @rajjan, the code still works. Only annoying part is it doesn't autopopulate the task name with the title of the page, and I have to manually paste the date into the due field. But it does save the url!
