Works great! When there's a code change that I don't want to do right now, I much prefer adding this type of reference rather than litter the code with "// TODO" comments, as it leads to much better traceability.

This extension makes this workflow that much nicer!

Excellent, simple tool to integrate with FogBugz to see details on the case.

Nice. You can also link to FogBugz wiki pages using the wiki:w?? syntax (mave sure you set the "value" as a string & set it to use the FogBugz plugin). To get the suffix, just have a look at the end of the link on the wiki page - it will be a "w" with a number. You don't get anything on hover but you can click through to the Wiki page.

  • Configuration parameter for keyword in URL

    • The ability to insert the "marked text" into the URL or command line using the %s is great, but I need the ability to insert the matched keyword as well (perhaps using %k). We use Jira as our bug tracking system, and the issue id is formatted as [project code]-[issue number]. For exmaple, if the project code is COLUMBUS, I configure a new profile with a keyword of "COLUMBUS-". For issue 1492 in this project, the URL necessary is http://jira/browse/COLUMBUS-1492 however I only have the ability to create a URL as http://jira/browse/1492.
      This isn't a problem if I only deal with a single project in Jira, but that isn't the case and I don't want to have to create multiple profiles with the project code hard-coded, one for each project, since everything about them is the same except for the project code.
    • Thanks for the suggestion and the clear example.  I've opened a new case for this.
    • After thinking about this, why can't you use this URL for your COLUMBUS profile:
      And this URL for an OTHER project profile:
