How to make links with our new comment system

posted by Patrick Crowley on June 2, 2011 at 3:18 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.)
