I have seen the script that Mario posted on another thread that replaces all the tilde's in the variables, but that requires to create a server rule for every item on all the feeds.
Is there an easier way?
I realize that I mentioned in my earlier post: "You could also use MLWebLobby to open your browser window to the web page containing the story details".
Since I don't use MLWebLobby to view the RSS feed item details, I never figured out the work around. Sorry about that. Didn't mean to mislead you or others.
I really don't see the advantage of opening a browser window inside ML to view story details. I just put this code:
into a button (web html field in the button properties panel) and it opens a browser window to the story item right over my ML scene.
When I'm through reading, I just close the browser window and it reveals my ML scene again. That's just my personal preference.
There may be a work around in the 026 design scenes, if you have them. I seem to remember that clicking on an item did open ML WebLobby directly. I think it does use a special script to get the url to work. Sorry, I'm fuzzy on the details. I'm sure someone else will jump in with a fix.
