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 .

    • I know what u mean. I found Bridgestone e5 brand new for 14.98 a dozen which is a 50% savings!!!! I wanted to shout it from the roof tops!!!! Bought six dozen...then shouted it from the roof tops. From the response, it appears no one is listening to anything golf ball related being shouted from the mountain tops as my forum entry had 0 replies. But hey!!! GO US!!!! Everybody loves golf ball deals!! :)
    • I agree with the first reply. Take some time away and give yourself an opportunity to recharge. We all have our slumps - even the tour pros. Remember, it's just a way to get some fresh air and exercise!  
    • I had a stretch like that about a month ago. For a few solid weeks (playing nearly every day), I couldn't break 80 for the life of me. I kept shooting 83, 86, 84... that sort of thing. And I think I was just trying too hard to fix everything all at once.  I started to overthink about mechanics and my confidence was low and I was tense over every shot and every putt and it all just compounded into poor scores and frustration. But then I decided to take a few days off and then followed it up with a few good sessions on the driving range where I focused on swinging smoothly and swinging within myself.  The issues I was dealing with seemed to fix themselves.  I didn't change anything about my swing, I just focused on approaching the game with "ease".  And at the moment I am playing some of the best golf in my life! Everybody goes through their slumps. Maybe just take some time away and when you return remind yourself to slow down and play within yourself. I bet that will help a lot!
    • I disagree with this. Let's take Titleist and/or Mizuno for example, the manufacturing tolerances are the same, the heads are all coming from the same factories and they all get assembled in the same building. In terms of design they probably spend much less time on the muscle back irons because there is only so much you can do with a blade design. More time goes into the design, R&D of the AP irons than the blades.
    • I was in the same place as u about 9 months ago. My home course was a very tight challenging par 66 golf course. Between the terrible hooking and the complete inability to get the golf ball in the air and the losing of 14 golf balls during one round I absolutely hit rock bottom. I was terribly depressed, angry, and heart broken. Unlike most everyone I know, golf is the only interest I possess other than my family. I own firearms but I do not hunt. I enjoy shooting and bowling over work but Im not overly passionate about either. My round on that given day concluded with me on 18 25 yards before the green aimed away from it. I retrieved the last 9 balls from my bag and hit every single one as hard as I could into the lake!!! I yelled, I cussed, I screamed, I behaved like an absolute lunatic. Broken and ashamed, I returned to my car and swore that no matter what I was done for six weeks. I had lost control and track of my priorities. I was holding golf above all else including my beautiful wife and amazing young son. Im ashamed to admit that esp publicly, but golf had consumed me. It was hell, but for six weeks; no golf channel, no golf browsing, no sand trap visits, didnt touch a golf ball or golf club. After six weeks and re prioritizing my life (getting my shit together) I returned refreshed and re discovered my love for the game. And now Ive dropped 8 strokes from my handicap and have done so while playing much longer more difficult courses. And MOST importantly Ive learned to balance golf with life and things that actually matter. Like family!! If u have reached the point u are at now, u are in danger of becoming me. RUN!!! Dont walk...RUN away from golf before its too late. For six weeks ignore all things golf at any and all costs!! Then come back and see what happens. Hopefully u rekindle your passion, if not, theres no law that says u must play golf. There comes a point where giving it up is the right move. ;) But I bet it doesnt come to that. Best of luck!!!!  P.s. Golf takes a lot of time away from the ones we love. Spend that extra time with those u cherish most.
