Some kind of tag for external links
Posted: Posted October 18th
Edited October 18th by Moonray

Specifically I would like the ability to replace a long URL with a short bit of text something like this:

[link:Click Here]url goes here[/link]

Would produce a link that just says Click Here

Or something along them lines. maybe swap where you put the text and where you put the url... But that's the basic concept of what I would like :)

@Xhin @Moonray for post

Moved to [Feature Requests] (http://gtx0.com/index.php?forum=Requests)

But guess what? It does not update the main page of this uniquely displayed forum and can't move it back (yay), so I guess that is a bug. Seems to be missing request-box.

Also you need to do it like this for replies

@Xhin:

Unless he changed it.

But thanks for moving it :)

Which is why I've asked repeatedly why the colon is needed for tags because it's clunky and awkward when tagging someone within a sentence.

Wait, i've been using it wrong this whole time?
Anyway, it's probably for a proper delimiter for use with names that have spaces.

Hey, now! I think it's less to do with the syntax and more to do with the general hoops you have to get through to get documentation. I'm still waiting for the "Handy Reference Guide" to include a comprehensive list.

Plus, like i said, the : is needed as a delimiter.

@LLight: Not a bug, the main page is based on the request information that's sent to Gambit, which didn't happen here because it was posted in another forum.

If we start moving loads of posts to requests I might fix it but otherwise it's not essential really.
