Abbreviation for a website

Post by jackvinson » Fri Nov 14, 2014 5:57 am

Hello-

How do I create a PERMANENT abbreviation that takes me to a specific website URL?

I have a website I visit a couple times a month. I love setting an abbreviation to that site, so I don't have to bother with bookmarks or other mechanisms that make me click more than I have to do.

However, it seems that Launchbar forgets this abbreviation from time to time. Then I have to try to remember the location of the website and reset the abbreviation. Why is that?

I'm thinking that Launchbar doesn't actually record a link between the abbreviation and the URL permanently. So, if my browser changes or if I happen to clear the cache on my browser, the Launchbar index no longer has that URL in it, so the abbreviation is no longer valid. And it goes away. But I don't know if this is true.

Thanks!
