New "Open Url" block!

hopscotch
ideas

#1

So I'm thinking this:

The block is

gray
and it opens the provided link! Functions like a set text block for entering in the url.
OUCH Sorry k bye!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

#2

This would be so great @H4x0r!!!!!!! You could send an email to the Hopscotch Team to add this in a future update.


#3

wait but because we can show videos by typing a url on the forum then people could post YouTube videos in a project and obviously someone will post a mean video or a inappropriate video on here and that would be bad


So let's wait a couple years until we do that


  • I agree
  • I don't agree

You have a Good Point @Gabe_N!


#5

This is a great idea but I will agree with @Gabe_N , I would also add that people can not only post urls about videos as they can be websites. This opens a gate for advertising.
Unless if this feature can only be handed to you if you're recognised as a real hopscotcher. Some topics talked about new block rewards and I think this should be the case.
I think that only people who
-recieved more than 50,
-published more than 3 projects,
-gave at least 50 likes
and are on hopscotch since one month
should unlock this feature


#6

Or only the hopscotch team can give this privilege and WE have to earn it from the hopscotch team!


#7

Yeppers. Good Point :deciduous_tree:


#8

That would make sense, because there is also the possibility of scammers hacking people's iPads.


#9

Um let's put that this way if it opens the URL in hopscotch that would cool


#10

And there is a technique to allow everyone to add url's but only let the youtube ones.


Every youtube url starts with:

https://youtu.be/*********

Example:

https://youtu.be/ogVZ9oEnqSM

#11

Hmmm... But if The Hopscotch Team makes this block, advertising might come in! I must agree with @TromaxTheDestroyer . But it is best to give it a shot! Maybe a short trial of it would do, right?


#12

Well how about: We can link to other people's projects! Click the ... and then Share and then Copy to get the link. We could link projects?

  • Yeh, sounds good!

  • No, I'm still with Gabe_N

You may choose up to 2 options.


#13

Good idea @H4x0r but then someone could paste a YouTube link in that and it probably would make the video in the project and that would make the same problems


#14

Yeah @H4x0r like @Gabe_N said, that's a good idea. Maybe to get around people posting links outside of Hopscotch like YouTube, they could make it somehow so it checks the URL to make sure it's a Hopscotch project. All Hopscotch project URLs start with https://c.gethopscotch.com so if a link doesn't start with that, the app won't open it.

This would be a really cool feature if you're making a series of projects, like a movie for example. Then at the end, you could have a button that says "Tap here to go to the next part" and then it would open the link of the next project in the series for you :smile: I'm not sure if it's possible but that would be very cool.


#15

Oh my gosh that is a perfect idea @t1_hopscotch! Go here to see a little example of it. :smirk: Hope this helped, please don't flag! :triangular_flag_on_post:


#16

so one thing, it could bring you to a hacking website!


#17

i dont know if you read the past things, but we were planning to do like only projects. example here.


#18

sorry i flagged but hey. people see this and makes them disprove this.


#19

All good @H4x0r we all make mistakes :sweat_smile:


#20

One issue though about linking one project to another is that the project you want to link must have a link of its own. Maybe we can do this in this way:
Project A

Set project link ( https://C.gethopscotch.com/project_name )

And then in another project, the one with the link to Project A, we put the code as mention by @t1_hopscotch like this:

Project B

When ( Bear is tapped ) 
Open project link ( https://C.gethopscotch.com/project_name )

That way, it's possible to have the person tap an object that links to the next one.

  • That's cool

  • Ehh no..
