How to make links with our new comment system

posted by Patrick Crowley on June 2, 2011 at 11:18 pm

Many people have asked us how to add links to their comments.

For now, if you paste a link into a comment, it will not become clickable after you submit your comment. While we do not yet support auto-linking links in comments, we hope to add support for that very soon.

In the meantime, if you still need to link to a movie theater or some other page, just use the Markdown link syntax for your links.

Here’s an example:

[Cinema Treasures](http://cinematreasures.org)

Once submitted, the resulting link will look like this:

Cinema Treasures

(Note: the old version of Cinema Treasures used so-called “BBCode”-style syntax for links, but this is not the same as Markdown link syntax. So please make sure you don’t use the old style.)

If you could support HTML in comments, that would be even better. Most people know how to use HTML.

Is there anyone out there who remembers the Metro Theater in Williamsburg in Brookyn? I believe it was on Grand St. We used to go there every Saturday afternoon when I was a kid, many, many years ago.
