By coincidence, I discovered that one space after the [url] tag, before you paste the actual MV thread URL, will render the thread's subject line and still work as a link.

Like this one:

[url] GTS Batttery again

Of course, you can always use the familiar syntax to give the link your individual name, but that's more effort.

Just posting the URL of the thread does that. If you want to experiment, take away the [url] and you'll see the same result.

Now it works, you are right. It didn't always do that, so it must be new.

Awesome!

You can proceed like this :

change that : [url] to that : [url=

Change that : [/url] to that : ]name of your link[/url]

Example :
Original link
http://www.scooter-vespa.eu/PhotosVespa/index.htm

Modified link :
Vespa Pictures

Enjoy !

That's what I meant with the "familiar syntax", but you must admit that it is much more effort than just posting the url, without any tags, as Chetwynder has said, and get this:

Link with automatic thread name

That's a good one. Is that how you insert a clickable thumbnail that links to the full size picture? If so, is there an easy way to get the thumbnail size "link"?

Thanks for making me think about this The gray matter needed a work out!

I use Picasa from Google. All my pictures are thumbnail previews in my albums. I just right click to grab the address of the thumbnail and then click on the picture and right click to grab the address of the full size view.


[url= path to full sized photo][img]path to thumbnail[/img][/url]

I see. Like this self-portrait then:

...wait, while the nice thing is that photobucket, who hosts my images, offers a clickable thumbnail link, so I have it all-in-one, the not-so-nice thing is that with that one image, any visitor has access to all my other images and albums

Not that I have anything to hide, but questions might be asked...

I have to investigate further...
