code templates

here's something that annoys me about TLRs forum design - i have to manually code my links and images and quotes and whatnot (and i -love- linking and posting images!). this could be improved without much fuss, yes? i just want to paste my link or whatever, click 'ok' and have it appear in my post.

Short of creating the codes ahead of time and then just cut and paste, not too sure the problem. (Differnt brackets mind you)


{Url=}Test Plug {/url}

The codes are rather easy.

my pinky feels like it is starting to dominate my typing with all these ctrl+c ctrl+v movements is what i'm saying. i paste once to put opening code in, again for the URL, third i type a closing bracket, fourth i paste my text or write my own, fifth i paste or write /url - sheesh, now on to the next one

so yeah, posting more than one link -is- a pain in the butt for me, and the forum codes gadget is a complete waste of time to look at if you've already done this before, since it can't just put your text into code.

what's so complicated about a textbox to place the inputted variable inside code quotes and auto-paste it to the window? it's 2007 soon to be 2008 - come on!

You could always switch to Voice Recognition Software and save your pinky.

Fin doesn't have much work, so make sure you screw up some stuff for him to take care of.
