Lasso Widget Issue?

rick hill-2
The Lasso desktop widget for OS X doesn't work.  It shows tags when  
given search parameter but those links do not connect to the Lasso  
reference page for the tag.  Fix coming?

Wondering here, too. I can't tell you how valuable that little widget  
is!

My quicksearch shortcut in Firefox broke too. I think they changed some
url in the reference. I just readded it and now it works again. If you
can edit the widget (I don't know how widgets are written, and whether
they're editable at all), try the following url:
http://reference.lassosoft.com/Reference.LassoApp?lassoscript/browse?tag= 
$yourquery

the ?tag=$yourquery part isn't used by the quicksearch shortcut, as it
uses a POST, but Lasso code usually doesn't make a distinction between
GETs and POSTs

This should work properly now.

The issue was that we inserted a redirect from the
reference.omnipilot.com domain to reference.lassosoft.com, but the AJAX
method the Widget uses internally cannot follow redirects.  There is now
an exception on the rewrite so widget requests can still be served from
the old domain.

Fletcher, you were also going to look into the issue why text from the
widget cannot be selected :-)
