    I can't really comment on this, I never use the "use mouse to browse mode".

    Yes (y). I have noticed that issue with a few sites, although I usually managed to find one or two visible pixels of the controls to click on, but IMHO the new version is a big improvement, functionally and aesthetically.

    New version is out!
    Changes:
    • Added option for previous and next pages
      • Here you can fill tags like "Next" ">>" etc.
      • You can then select the next page with the NextChapter and PrevChapter keys, so you don't have to type the numbers for those pages anymore
    • Improved bookmark handling
    • Improved number-placing
    • Improved keybindings
    • Fixed missing thumbs
    • Fixed spurious duplicate link numbers
    • Fixed focus issues with flash player

    Looking forward to trying this out, thanks! I'm not sure I understand how the previous and next page is supposed to work, but I guess it will make sense once I play with it, souns interesting anyway.

    @doskabouter, thanks for the latest update, I've just been playing with the new version. The improved number placing is cool, and the improvements with flash seem to have fixed some problems I used to have (like once I started a flash video playing, I wouldn't be able to do anything else).

    However I have a couple of issues/questions;

    1. Bookmarks - when I create a bookmark inside MePo by pressing record, it seems to work, I can press show bookmarks, and the thumb is there, and it works. But once I exit MePo and restart it, or go into the browsetheweb plugin config, the bookmark has disappeared. Bookmarks created in the plugin config or imported from another browser don't disappear.

    2. The new next/previous page feature - I can't get this to work. Can you maybe give an example of a page where this works, and what "tags" to use to make that particular page work. Also the keys; you said this uses NextChapter and PrevChapter keys - as far as I can tell, by default that is F7 and F8, which are already used for back and forward, so I'm confused as to which keys I should be trying to use for this? Probably I'm just being stupid, but I can't figure this out :confused:.

    Just a quick answer (indepth analysis of the bookmarks will follow shortly):
    F7/F8 is previous item/next item. This isn't the same as PrevChapter/NextChapter!
    I have solved it for me by modifying the keymapping like this:

    Show Spoiler

    <window>
    <id>54537689</id>
    <description>BrowseTheWeb</description>
    <action>
    <id>92</id>
    <key>C</key>
    <sound>click.wav</sound>
    <description>Back</description>
    </action>
    <action>
    <id>91</id>
    <key>D</key>
    <sound>click.wav</sound>
    <description>Forward</description>
    </action>
    </window>

    And have the some buttons on my remote bound to the C and D key

    Only drawback of this is that the keymap.xml is overwritten on MP update, so you'd best keep a copy of it as a backup

    If you fill "Prev" and "Next" (without quotes) in the appropriate fields, you can then go to the next or previous page in long threads f.e. on this forum https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/why-everything-else-is-just-a-media-center.98643/ by pressing the "C" or the "D" key

    Edit: Hm, serves me right for bragging about functionality without testing. The example url I provided does not work, I'll have to dig into that. But (Just tested myself) the xkcd website does work with "prev" and "next" put in the config. There seems to be some issues with it in combination with iframes. So on some pages it'll work, and on some it won't...

    Ah okay, now I understand. I looked in the default keymap, and the only next chapter/prev chapter I saw was F7/F8 forr the dvd module, so I thought that's what you meant. I should have looked in the list of actions instead. Thanks for clarifying.

    I was trying to test on these forums too, so I'm glad you mentioned that, or I would be scratching my head still!

    Good thing indeed. Wouldn't want to be responsible for any hair-loss at your side :)

    Fixed both your bugs.
    I think I'll wait a bit before doing a bugfix-release, seeing if other bugs might emerge.

    Must say though, putting the installer on a page with a download counter on it is a real eye-opener. I couldn't imagine in a 1000 years that so many of you use this plugin. Current count is 3633, which (even guessing 4 or 5 pc's per person) is still a lot of people. Makes me feel quite overwhelmed...

    Still can't believe it, and suspecting some other cause for the high downloadcount... :cautious:
