Shortcuts Plugin

Shortcuts Plugin

The Shortcuts Plugin allows the user to jump to places within the filebrowser of their choice. In order to set this up, use the context menu on either a file or directory in the file browser tree, and use the "Add to shortcuts" menu option. This will create a file in the root directory of the DAP called "". Launching this file from the file browser will show the user a list of entries - selecting one of them will then exit the plugin and leave the user either within the directory selected, or with the file selected in the file browser.

Entries in the file can be deleted by highlighting them and then using the "Menu" button.

Advanced Usage

The plugin also allows users to create their own custom .link files anywhere in the file tree on their DAP. These have to be created with a text editor (either on their computer, or using Rockbox's text editor). The format for each entry is a leading slash, followed by the path to the file / directory the user wishes to have as a shortcut. Directory entries without a trailing slash will cause the plugin to exit in the file browser with the directory selected. If the trailing slash is included, then the file browser will be left in the directory on the first file.

Such user created .link files will go straight to the entry in the file tree if the .link file contains only one entry. Otherwise, the same selection menu as is displayed for the main "" file will be shown.
