Hi all,

I never remember the syntax well enough to link to an article in the forums (p=#=?!), so I created this very small program :idea:
It's like that in PureBasic, you need something so you make it yourself in a few minutes (or hours) :P

How to use:
1. Once connected, drag the "Quote" icon onto my program window. The new link is automatically created on the article number.
It is also automatically copied to the clipboard.
2. Select the text in your article, click on the[URL] tag, then add = between URL and ] and press CTRL+V. The link is inserted.

Tutorial in pictures:
1. Drop icon Quote to create link (Gif 1 Mo)
2. Insert Link (Gif 1.5 Mo)

Download TopicLinker.exe 269 ko

Tested on the English and French forum.
Must also work on the German forum, but I haven't tested in real life (I don't speak German)

Freeware.
Enjoy

:wink:

If I understand it correctly..
I also created such a tool years ago, until someone pointed out to me that there is a tiny little paper icon to the left of 'Posted' in the top section of a post. :P

<edit>
it's next to '.. by username' when logged in. But maybe some forum styles don't have it?

I don't have this little icon on the default theme of PureBasic forums :?:

Sorry, I didn't know you made a tool that does the same thing. I didn't do any research on the forums before (I had an idea, and I rushed as usual and the ease of PB allowed me to finish before I understood what I was doing) :mrgreen:

:wink:

Oh, yes, I get it now :!:
Years of making complicated copy/paste :mrgreen:
Pfft, an afternoon for something that already exists :(
I persevere in reinventing the wheel :D

:arrow: Can a moderator delete my topic? Thank you. No need to clutter the server and put unnecessary data (software) in the search engine. :wink:

No,

the topic should stay online.
Do you know how many people don't know this small icon :?:

And ... maybe there are other forums with an qoute button but without such a small icon.

Btw. I wrote also a forums tool long time ago:
It plays a sound if a special person login.
It was for a dog forum, so it barks if this user login :mrgreen:

Hi, hi,

I just looked for my old code and found that I already made a version for the PB forum an I posted the code for the PurePunch Demo contest 2012 :mrgreen:

Unfortunately it does not fit the new forums version. So I have to spend a bit of time.

Well then maybe I'll continue my program, add some functions to it. I have a number of totally useless ideas to code :mrgreen:
