LD update: new comment/post formatting options

News

Hi all!

Just wanted to give you all a heads up about a new feature we've just added to LD - if you highlight text when you're writing a comment or post you should now get a little formatting window pop up.

This should let you easily make text bold, italic, underlined or - if you're feeling fancy - you can add in bullet point lists too.

All of this was possible before but required witchcraft and wizardry with keyboard shortcuts. Hopefully having this more straightforward method makes it a little more accessible :thumbsup:

But the new formatting toolbar was all a precursor to being able to add in the text link option. You can now highlight some text - like this - and choose the link/paperclip icon. Enter a URL then that text will become a link. Magic!

Would be great to have your feedback and to know if it's behaving oddly for anyone. I'll do my best to get it fixed :slight_smile:

What do you think of this?

Think it works. This should have been the word "works" but seems it is just showing the video. Typed a word, highlighted it, chose paper clip and added link. Anything i am doing wrong ? Looks right before i hit save but then it shows the video.

Haha slightly ironic that it didn't work! I think it's getting confused between auto youtubing and adding a link as text - I'll get it fixed tomorrow :slight_smile:
