Subject: Internal Blue Clickys


I'd like ask our "regulars" to take the time to learn how to do within-Mudcat clickable links (internal links). When you make a link, leave out the http://XXX.mudcat.org (XXX being the name of the server). That way, the link keeps the reader in the server he/she was using. Our regulars post a lot of internal links, and I've had to spend a lot of time changing them. If you link to ragtime or dharma or shorty or loki, or even www - there are times that those servers aren't working, and your link then leads people to a dead end.



for a thread:

for a song (link preferably taken from SuperSearch/ Digitrad & Forum Search):

<a href=/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=409>(click here)</a>




Note how cleverly I have also deleted extraneous stuff from the end of the URL of both the thread and the song. All you need is;
