Add URL field

justdoro says:
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.

works, thank you! But this should be added at official site, too.

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!

Official support for auto-completion of the URL field as a feature of the Bookmarklet simply makes sense.

I love using Pinboard bookmarklet to save site and wish that RTM bookmarklet has comparable ability to populate task name with title of page and URL. Thank you.
