-- Generate HTTP URL fixed/fully implemented --

Currently this feature is not fixed/fully implemented.

Fixed: All space chars should be changed to %20 in the generated URL string so that it can properly be pasted as escaped HTTP links.

Fully: You can only generate an HTTP URL for a single file. If you have 10,20,100 links you need to create, you cannot just select all of the files at once to create URLs for in the clipboard, you have to do them individually 10,20,100 times based on need.

The features above currently are currently implemented in your competition SmartFTP ('copy http url' function).

Thanks.

That's not true. You can select the files and run the extension on the selection.

How do you do this then to generate MULTIPLE HTTP URLs in one operation?
Whenever I select say three files in WinSCP from the remote FTP host, I then RIGHT click the selected files --> 'File Custom Commands' --> 'Generate HTTP URL'.
I then paste into say notepad, and there is only a single URL there rather than ALL three.
Please advise.

Cheers,

OK, you are right. It indeed does not work with "Copy URL to clipboard". I was testing it with "Display URL", with which it works.

Please start a new thread and show us a full 259 error (verbatim copy or even a screenshot). We do not know what 259 error is.
