Bug in citation component of track config or error in documentation

Keiran Raine
Hi all,

Sorry to raise this again but I have not received either confirmation from others that this does not work as expected or that I am using the feature incorrectly.

The GBrowse 2.0 how-to mentions that a citation can be set as a URL and selecting it should result in the target of the URL being visited.

I've tried to apply:

citation = http://cgp-gbrowse-test.dynamic.sanger.ac.uk/cgi-bin/gb2/gbrowse/PD3993a/

(ideally I'd like to be able to do this without including the server info)

But this does not work, all it allows is for me to click on the track name, and see the result in a new window.  It was suggested that including this as an HTML href link may work but this just means the resulting page has a link in it instead of the plain text.

Can someone please confirm if this should allow direct linking to the specified target?

Thanks

Hi Keiran,

I think it should probably work, but I don't really know.  Do you mind
submitting a bug report for it?

Thanks,
Scott
