one aspect of the flexviewer url that I use is the ability to put a featureID in the parameter string of the url and have the map center on that location when it loads. is there a similar function in the javascript api and/or the webappbuilder? (fyi- this functionality is thanks to Robert S. and his work to extent the flexviewer)

Glenn,

   I plan to have this added into the next version of eSearch for WAB. Currently WAB does not even support centering the map based on a URL parameter.

I just noticed the recent release of AGOL WAB (March 2015) allows for map navigation through the URL

The URL's they use in the examples imply that you need to have a webappviewer folder? Am I missing something?

Brian,

   Just pay attention to the actual url paramter in the example. It is not implying that you have to have a local folder url

My thoughts were to try this with the ParksFinder app since I'm assuming it's based on the same foundation as a WAB map. There is NO index.html to add that snippet to... and when I just drop the "?urlmodifiers" they give me quirky responses. I haven't tested with a WAB map yet, but I did get sketchy responses from our ParksFinder app we've set up.
