The function which complements ROOT like web Browser is not mounted in WebParser.
However, it can solve a problem because Skin Builder oneself adds ROOT dir.

EXAMPLE:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
[SOURCE]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll
UpdateRate=3600
Url=http://forum.rainmeter.net/
RegExp="<img src=\".(.+?)\"/>"

[LOGO]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll
Url=http://forum.rainmeter.net/[SOURCE]
StringIndex=1
Download=1

[(logo)]
Meter=IMAGE
MeasureName=LOGO
X=0
Y=0
W=70
H=60
-----------------------------------------------------------------

In my memory, this function was added to WebParser.dll 1.10 by the following topics.
Refer to that for details.

Testing now... If that change was in fact incorporated into the release version of WebParser, it should solve the problem.

I will report back...

Thanks!

Yep... That works! Really solves a particular problem of getting images like "favicons" which are almost always "relative paths" and other images embedded on web pages, and the trick can be used for other purposes as well. I don't think this capability is documented in the manual, so I will do a "Tricks & Tips" post now so others can see how it works.

Thanks again.
