Why when I click any mxp instead of getting "look <vnum>" or "lock <name>" I get some other number. I have noticed this is the same on all DoT muds.

e.g. A trash can [3081,1] when right clicked give look #1010?
Whats the relevance of #1010?

Would it not it be heaps cleaner and more IC if it did "look <short_descr>"?

Just an idea.

I did some tests on my mud. I don't have any of the problems you are stating. Can you perhaps give me a mxp-supported command you are using that would generate a list?

Just a short post to clear this up. After dropping in on Daos he has explained what it is all about.

Dawn Output:
Daos tells you 'In the code, it doesn't point to the vnum but the uid (universal ID #)'
Daos tells you 'so there can be accurate HTML-based tags which is the basis of MXP'
Daos tells you '<send href=\"eat #&|look #&|examine #&\'
Daos tells you 'etc'
Daos tells you '<send href=\"get #&|look #&|examine #&\'


So that explains it in case anyone else was wondering. Smile
Also seems to me that changing it to short_descr would be near immpossible since it is a html recognition protocol.

How does one make this work correctly?
As an example:

a firey chair, burns here [1001,1]

if I right click and do examine I get

examine #1022

this then shows me

a firey chair burns here

Is there a way so that it will actually show me what the chair looks like?

ed key chair

A firey chair burns red and orange as flames lick around its edges.

Hi -

You have added key, and chair as your keywords for your extended description, so only by looking at key or chair will it bring up your extended description.
