Preview Address bar

Postby pety » Sun Jan 08, 2017 1:09 pm

I would like to see in Address bar Preview the real path, not "Generate preview file"
I have UwAmp (Apache, Php and Mysql) localy instaled.

Is it any way to see automatically the real address? Maybe when use Preview mapping? Ex. http://localhost/menus/index.php
But no manualy grab/write it.

If you use "Generate preview file" then you can find out the address when you need it using Internet Explorer preview, right click the document, select properties.

Thanks for your fast response.
I know the address, but I want to see it where it is its place.
Becouse I rapidly can change the files to preview them.

Navigating in File Explorer, double click the file, clicking php file tabs then click preview is a litle bit annoying.
I hope it is a good point for you.

You should consider installing a task runner like Gulp
Then you can write a watcher script that automatically refreshes the browser whenever you save a file.

@pmk65
Thanks for your advice.
I will try it becouse I built a new server for my developement.

But I would like Webuilder with localhost path in address bar. When I work in Webuilder I do not like to have a lot of third party apps.
I know that is a good feature.

The challenge is to display address while still making perfectly clear that it is generated automatically and depends on file name, location etc. We'll try to think of something if we can.
