This should be easily achievable using existing standard variables. For example:


For this reason, I don’t think it’s necessary to add a new operation just for this.

Thanks again for using Template and for providing great suggestions. Please keep them coming :)

    Hi Arun,

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. All that you should need to do is add a new template with the content I mentioned previously. This can be done by following these steps:

    1. Go to the options page
    2. Click on the "Templates" tab
    3. Click the "Add" button at the bottom of the page
    4. In the popup you can enter anything for all of the fields (e.g. the title could be "URL without parameters") except for the "Content" textarea at the bottom, which should contain the following:


    Now, all that you should need to do is activate this template and you should copy the URL without the query string parameters (i.e. anything after "?").

    I hope this helps but please let me know if you're still stuck.

    Sorry, I didn't understand. Can you explain again, please? I have this URL "http://www.amazon.in/Half-Girlfriend-Chetan-Bhagat/dp/8129135728/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1412739667&sr=8-1&keywords=half+girlfriend" I want to remove all the URL parameters - starting from "?" to the end of the URL and get only the pure URL (the URL without the URL parameters)

    Please explain once again as to how this can be achieved.
