NEW Feature: Embedding Links to TST Resources

10 posts in this topic

Want to find out how to post embedded links like this in threads?

Then read more below......

The Sand Trap forums have a great way to embed links that's historically under-used, so we've written this article about it.

We'd like to encourage you to embed links to The Sand Trap resources rather than just copying and pasting the URL. It's something you can do daily to help make The Sand Trap just that little bit more awesome. So check out this new embedding feature, play around with it and have fun!


When you're responding to a discussion and you want to link a thread, article, product, or review, it's a good idea to Embed it. It looks nicer and cleaner than just posting a link, like this:

Here are the steps to take to linking to a TST resource when responding to a discussion.

1. In your tool bar click on the "" button:

If you can't see the "" button, you're probably viewing the simple editor controls. Just click the "More" button to the right to view the full controls.

2. Search for the link or resource

In this reply I want the user to check out a thread where he can see what other users have said about the grips I have recommended.

Just type in words like "pure grips" or "newbie helpers" or "5SK video thread" in the search box, and click the "Search" button.

3. From the list of results, Click on the link (red) you want.

In this case, I'd like to select the first thread listed.

4. Choose how you want to link to look:

You'll probably use "Inline" for most posts that link to threads.

5. Your post with the embedded content will look like this when submitted:

And when you hover the mouse over the link it will look like this

6. You can also embed products easily!

Here I'm searching for a review for a specific set of irons

7. We recommend going with "Block" for Products.

8. Your post will look like this:

I think the best part of this feature is just being to search for a thread to link it. It gets a little tedious sometimes to open up a new tab, search for the page I'm referring to, and then copying and pasting. I will do this, thanks.

Cool. I'll try to remember to do it this way when appropriate.

Do we have a similar feature for content outside the forum?

No. We can't track page views and all that stuff.

@iacas ,

What is up with the latin in the imbed feature?  I feel like Mr. Maynard is going to throw chalk at me if I misuse this phase!

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, How to hit Sand/Bunker Shots consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

I got this translation from Google.  My latin is rusty considering it has been 38 years since my last class.

It can be a film, How to hit the Sand / bunker shots to obtain pain pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.

It's just filler text. Commonly used by web developers. I even have a keyboard shortcut for it.

It should have secret hidden meanings or clues like in National Treasure .

      You use the S&D option of Rule 28 at any time you want. It doesn't matter if you can't see it, can't identify it or have it staring you in the face with your ID in dayglo pink. To use either of the other options you have to be able to identify it.
    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
    • My Swing (coop6)
      The video you linked of Rory do you see how there is zero club face rotation after the ball?
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      thanks @ColinL great answer. Question: Are there any times where you can take an unplayable if you can't identify your ball, like if you can't get close enough to read the letters. I thought there were.
