    Thanks for creating a ticket.

    The new redlinks code calls javascript to update the code, but this is initiated "server-side" (the old redlinks code was initiated from the "client-side"). This shouldn't be hard to change, but I'm going to target a later release date to be safe.

    I haven't had time to look at any of the server-side code. I'll review this ticket again for a v1.1.* release.

    v1.1 is out and redlinks are still not showing.

    Hi. "v1.1.*" basically means a release in January. It does not indicate any v1.1 release (hence the *).

    Also note that the ETA is not a guarantee, and slippage may occur. I'll get to this item as soon as I resolve some other higher priority issues.

    v1.2.1 will support redlinks. I spent time tonight implementing this functionality. The biggest issue was that the Addon does this:

    var result = Function("with(arguments[0]){return "+cmd_text+"}")(session.window); 

    which fails when passing something like this

    var elem = document.getElementById('~{elem_id}');
    var atr_val = elem.~{atr_key};
    elem.setAttribute('~{atr_key}', atr_val + '~{atr_val}');
    return true;

    I worked around this by wrapping all javascript calls to the Addon with this

    s = "(function () {" + s + "})();";

    My apologies for taking so long to resolve the ticket.
