In forum posts is there a way to have the text of a link be something other than the URL?
When you click on the link button, it doesn’t seem to offer you a way to do that.
LEFT_BRACKET url=”a url here” RIGHT_BRACKET what I want the link to look like here LEFT_BRACKET SLASH url RIGHT_BRACKET
but that didn’t work.
Is there a way to do it that I’m missing?May 29, 2014 at 2:40 pm #7992

Thanks, and I know that way works, but I’m looking for a way to have the text of a link be something _other_ than the URL: the ‘what I want the link to look like here’ bit.May 30, 2014 at 5:52 am #8004
I don’t think it’s possible in the forum, the auto URI linker plugin we use automatically makes any links live. It has precedence over any other linking.August 7, 2014 at 8:18 am #10302
Just testing the current functionality. It looks like plain HTML, but you never know with message boards.
Link with all three things filled in:
<a href="http://www.google.com" title="This is the part in the title attribute">This is the part between the angle bracket tags</a>
Same link with no title attribute:
<a href="http://www.google.com">This is the part between the angle bracket tags</a>
First link with nothing between the angle brackets:
<a href="http://www.google.com" title="This is the part in the title attribute"></a>
First link with no attributes, just a URL between angle brackets:
<a>http://www.google.com</a>August 7, 2014 at 8:20 am #10303
OK, so what’s important is
1. when you click the “link” button, the URL in the pop-up dialog. This goes into the href attribute.
2. what’s between the angle brackets.
And the title field in the pop-up is not important.
