How Do I Use Current Browser URL and Title To Create a WebLoc file? and How Do I Rename Forklift Files?

It's completely different in that it's a mini web page that auto-loads the "saved location", and not a webloc file at all. But permissions etc will be the same as any other user-created file in your user space.

Thanks for clarifying that is what I had considered it may be. I wonder why the cloud sync system seems to get so upset with the files at times. I wish it was 100% of the time but it can go 2-3 days before the issue reoccurs.
I’ll continue to monitor and see if I can draw together any further information in the issue. I will resolve it eventually lol-not.

Looking at the files themselves. A '.webloc' file from Brave or Safari looks like this structure wise:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">

A file created by the macro (.html) looks like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<body onLoad="go();">

function go() { location.assign(""); }

Is it viable to modify the macro so it creates a '.webloc' file with the webloc structure? I'm wondering if macOS would be happier with this?

A file is a file -- iCloud Sync shouldn't care about the contents. But are you running any AV/anti-malware? There's a chance that, as an HTML file that does nothing but invisibly redirect to another location, the file is getting flagged as "naughty" -- which might cause problems if it happened after the file has been synced to iCloud the first time.

It's only an HTML file because you asked for such! The versions Chris posted before that show you how to make a webloc file instead.

No I'm not running any AV/anti-malware at all apart from the native protection built into the OS.

Oh heck, muchly embarrassed here, I'd forgotten that :slight_smile: :blush: Thanks for the reminder....

I'll go 'up thread' and look at that version.......
