could you be a bit more specific? maybe show a quick xml example –  NSjonas Aug 15 '14 at 21:51
Oh I see, they can't be retrieved and deployed independently of custom objects (like you can do with custom fields). Basically its all or nothing when migrating custom objects –  NSjonas Aug 15 '14 at 23:45
No, you can specify the Weblink metadata type separately. It will appear in the objects directory under the appropriate object, but that object's XML won't include other properties, like fields or related lists, unless explicitly retrieved. There's a typo in the documentation. Docs say it's WebLink, but it's actually Weblink. –  sfdcfox Aug 15 '14 at 23:58
