Hi,

When you enter a boardgame link, you need to type the search text and then enter an alternate text that you want to show up in the actual post.

It would be really nice if there was a click box that duplicated the text from the search box in the alternate text box so you don't have to type it twice.

It's not earth shattering, but it would be nice.

Thanks!

that kinda link your talking about? You just leave it blank unless you want to change it like this
that one game im talking about

for a better picture of whats going on:
[.thing=5][./thing]
[.thing=5]that one game im talking about[./thing]

and I assume if its left empty it defaults back to the game ID title. (I am not a pro programmer)

Alright, I take back my small critism. I didn't realize if I didn't write anything it would show up when I submitted my comment.

It does default back. I thought because there was nothing between the brackets, there wouldn't be any text. My bad.

Thank you.

Ooops. Next to the box there is a label stating "Alternate text: (optional)"


so that text might be considered a tweak already in place to ease use ?
