[hobbit] Turn Hostnames into hyperlinks?

I have used the NAME tag in the host file also but how do you go about
getting it to open in a new page.  Because when I do:  myhostname.dyndns.org #NAME:"<a href=http://myhostname.dyndns.org
target=_blank>My Host</a>"



My hostname disappears.  I have also tried it like this:  myhostname.dyndns.org #NAME:"<a href="http://myhostname.dyndns.org"
target="_balnk">My Host</a>"


And it does the same thing.

You can also create small hostname.html files with hyperlinks in the
www/notes directory. 

Here you can put information about the host and what ever you like.

Hi Chris,


On each host in the bb-hosts file you can add href links to the NAME: tag
such as:  myhostname.dyndns.org #NAME:"<a
href=http://myhostname.dyndns.org>My Host</a>"


This replaces the html links on all the bb pages from taking you to the
group/page that the host belongs to, to whatever you specified in the NAME


I hope this is what you were after!

Please forgive me if I'm not reaching out to the right place..


For each host I have listed on BBDisplay, I want to turn their name into a
hyperlink that takes me to a weather page for that customer's location.  I
was able to insert an html hyperlink into the index.html for that customer-
and it worked!  Though the index.html refreshes every minute and ends up
removing my tag.  Can someone shine some light on this for me- or direct me
to the right place to ask this question?  Very very much appreciated.
