Using certain syntax in questions/answers will generate links automatically. For future reference, here is that syntax.

The following are supported. Note that the Plaintext and Trac formats do not produce links in the real-time preview of your question/answer, while the other formats do.

Some further details can be found in an askbot post on this topic.

Plaintext links

Trac ticket links

  • you type: "ticket 1234"
  • you get: ticket 1234

Markdown syntax links

URL's entered as html

  • you type: "<a href="">asksage</a>"
  • you get: asksage

Note: after several tries, I can't figure out how to turn off the auto linking for the "you type" parts . . . I hope this is clear enough anyway!

Further detail: comments are not parsed with Markdown, so `markdown syntax` will not work, but url's like will still autolink

(But the syntax for trac ticket 1234 will not work)
