Mods - Shortening up URL's some help is required

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by scooter, Sep 6, 2005.

  1. I have noticed that lately a lot of peeps are displaying the full web address when posting a weblink.

    When the address is very long it ends up messing up the whole thread, making it a pain to attempt to read through.

    The alternative ( url = web address) brief description ( /url ) seems to be too hard for some to grasp.

    Is it possible to have this happen automatically when the URl button is selected? It would certainly help.

    Thanks in advance.
  2. Truth be told I only just worked out how to do the thing you suggest. So yeah, it is too hard for some unless you know the trick.

    A button that automatically formats the link to that style would be great. Is there a list of these tricks for people to use?
  3. Gold :LOL: :LOL:
  4. Love the conversion URL site Marty, where do you find all this stuff!

    The best way for shorturl's

    URL text

    Not real hard to copy and paste.
  5. If I can work it out all by myself then any puder illiterate person should be able to do it as well :p
