Re: Interwiki links for Zim Desktop Wiki on Windows



Maybe there's a problem with the URL you are writing in the urls.list file
and/or the way you are using the interwiki link?

Let's see a concrete example:

- my username in Windows is "mariano", so the %APPDATA% folder resolves to:

- in there I have a urls.list file, in the following location:

- I have two Zim Notebooks, "Personal" and "Work", in the following
locations (these are the folders where each "notebook.zim" file is located):

- In the urls.list file, I declared an "interwiki" prefix for the Work
notebook, with the following line:
work zim+file://C/Users/mariano/Dropbox/Notebooks/Work

- With that configuration, then if I open my Personal notebook and insert a
link like this:
Then when I clic it a new instance of Zim is opened, with the Work
notebook, and the page Home->Projects.

Are you doing more or less something like this?
