Introducing Links
Here's a feature I've been thinking about for a while (years?) but have never had time to implement.

There is now a links tab under each section in FP. Full Members can add whatever web links they want.

I added some under 1/32 scale toys to give you an idea - here

It's experimental so there are probably bugs galore. I don't want it to become a haven for link spam or a link rot jungle so it'll probably evolve as I see how it is used.

Anyway, see what you think!

Re: Introducing Links
@Gerbert: When you say 'integrate quoting' do you mean a link on each message to automatically insert that message as a quote in a reply form? (sorry, I haven't said that very well)

@TC: thanks for trying it out. Let me know if you can think of improvements that need to be implemented

Re: Introducing Links
indeed a good idea but like you say, you shoul find something to limit the link too 1 a user, so that 1 user doesn't set 10 links:-P

Re: Introducing Links
I dont think there should be a limit, as long as they are good, valid, interesting links, what is the problem?

Re: Introducing Links
@Hannes: yes, somebody could repeatedly post the same link in an attempt to publicize something they are interested in or to improve their pagerank on search engines. This 'spam' problem is something you see a lot of on sites that allow anybody to post links. Only allowing 1 link per day would probably be a fix for that. It's a good idea but I won't implement it until we see it become a problem. Like TC says, it's possible that one person might have many good links to post.

One thing we have in our favor is that only full members can post links. This should stop most of the 'drive by' spam....

@Gerbert: OK, I will try and figure out how to do that.

OK Gerbert, this should be working now. By every message (when you are logged in) there should be a little link saying [Quote] and this will bring you to a new reply form (image or text reply) that will have the message quoted within it...

GREAT feature!

I'm glad that quoting finally got to FP!

Thanks Stu!
