Insert date keyboard shortcut

Is there a keyboard shortcut in Caboodle to insert short or long date?

Import Web Archive

I've reformatted my computer and thought I backed up Caboodle but only exported it in the web archive format. I don't suppose there is any way to import that given it's not currently available as an import option for me?

Macfilink - Programs that don't allow zero-framed links

I have heard that there are quite a few affiliate programs out there that don't allow zero-framed links. I understand that Macfilink uses a framing method to cloak the links (which has its advantages, since visitors can't remove the affiliate ID after visiting the site) but may be against some affiliate programs rules. Does Macfilink use "zero-frame links" or a similar scheme, and if so, is there a way to turn this off in Macfilink? Thanks.


I am exploring Macfilink and it looks good! I have also tried Cloak and Tracker (alternative program) and while it works, it puts a question mark in the generated URL so it still looks like an affiliate link, even though it is much harder for someone to change the link.

In brief layman's language, how does Macfilink work? Does it create a sort of "mirror" of the affiliate page on ones own site?

My question is,

I used Macfilink to upload the generated HTML to my web server, but it went into the / folder, not the www folder that contains my website files.

Using Transmit, I uploaded an affiliate folder to store all my Macfilink files. I then chose "Copy Path" for that affiliate folder in Transmit and pasted the path (ftp://ftp.[domain].com:21//www/affiliate) into Macfilink's Path field in the Upload sheet. However, after choosing Upload, I am still not seeing the Macfilink file in the affiliate folder. Does it take a while for this to appear?

Feature Request: Make the Clock Functional

Here's an idea; make the cool meditation clock actually work...esp for those who work late into the night, as a gentle reminder of exactly how late it is...

I don't get it...

I've followed the directions...

but WHERE do I get the new (cloaked) link?

Thanks for your help,


Update Original URL (No Effect)


First off, thank you for developing such a great software and giving it away for free use, it is truly great work!

I have one thing though that I cannot seem to be able to fix:
Header URL: www.Apple.com
Original URL (with affiliate ID): www.Apple.com/?123

My webpage generated and uploaded with Macfilink: www.mywebpage.com/go/apple

The issue is that when you visit "www.mywebpage.com/go/apple" it does not change to the Header URL (www.Apple.com), instead, it stays as "www.mywebpage.com/go/apple"

Is there a fix for this so the uploaded webpage changes to the Header URL when visited?

Thank You for any input!

Small problem - it doesn't play nice with Caffeine


I'm using TimeOut and I like it. I'm also using Caffeine to prevent my MacBook Pro from dimming the screen. One problem I noticed is that TimeOut does not reset the time count due to inactivity if Caffeine is one.

Thanks and keep up the good work,
