Small enhancement: The Go box understands now also URLs as defined in $linkProtocolPattern, e.g. http, ftp, gopher, news, file, https and telnet. Not very useful at first hand because it duplicates the function of the browser's address field.

The feature is handy if you build a skin that has a dropdown of frequently used links, like Intranet home, employee database, sales database and such. A little JavaScript gets into action on the onSelect method of the select tag to fill the selected URL into the Go box field, then submits the form.

In TWikiAlphaRelease.

Here is an example form for illustration. It has a select box and the Go box. You need to have JavaScript enabled for this to work:

Bare bones header for demo only
Readme  |  Show me topics of interest  |  Topics Index  |  Changes Detailed  |  Search  |  Go
Dakar  |  Brainstorming  |  Requests ToDo Dev  |  Bugs Assigned Done  |  Patches Unfinished Ready Accepted  |  DevQs  |  Usability

The select box can be added to an existing skin. This is now documented in TWiki.TWikiSkins.
