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.)

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.

One doesn’t have to worry about the security of the application, as only the licensed products is available on the applications, which makes the application of Showbox, secure and virus free.

The problem is with your link. The format that you have provided for the link may be not correct, if you correct the format then you can give links to the comments. So try the same format. Like keyword. This is the formatting this will help you to give links. dry vaporizer

While adding our comments, it will be good if you upload a link to it. Adding links to a comment is very easy. In most of the comment box, a link option will be provided from which we can add the appropriate keyword of our choice. Chrome browser issues
