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:

This will help a lot!  I am guilty of copying URLs.  Thanks.

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.

On behalf of the old, technologically challenged crowd, we thank you.  :-)

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.
