Weby search with # symbol

    Hi,

    I'm trying to add a weby search provider for our bug tracking system, so I just have to type in the ID of the bug and it will pop up in my web browser.

    However all our ID's have a # symbol in them, which seems to get striped out instead of being replaced with %23 as I would expect.

    Is this something I can work around?

    Thanks

    Andy

    Actually just noticed that spaces are also stripped out which doesn't make weby search very useful.

    I'm running launchy version 2.6 Beta 1, and Chrome on Windows 7, if this makes any difference.

    If the # is always in the same place, then you can just add the # to the Weby command string before or after you use the %1.  Or what I just did, is set up a command using Runner and add the Program as your webbrowser and the Arguments is the website and replace where your bug id is with $$.
