Posting on DDF
« on: September 06, 2019, 02:35:51 PM »
This thread is dedicated to convenient and efficient shortcuts, 'how-to's, and tips for making posts on DDF.  Please add your favorites and then we can make a wiki.  This can include both basics and advanced tools.

My favorite shortcuts (thank you @etech0):
control+A - selects All the text
control+C - Copies the selected text
control+V - pastes the last copied text
control+Z - undoes the last keyboard action  (so you can correct yourself or change your mind)
control+Y - undoes the last control+Z (so you can change your mind about changing your mind!)

Posting a clickable link:
url=PUT URL LINK HERE]PUT THE BLUE NAME YOU WANT FOR THE LINK HERE[/url
Put a [ at the beginning before the first 'url' and a ] at the very end after the last 'url' so it looks like '[ url=' without the space

Can someone please post a corrected copy/paste of the following link so I may include it in a post I want to write? 


I still have not solved why my computer doubles the url address and adds [size], [font] and other things so the links I write are not clickable.  Thank you.


[/size][url=https://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=20906611011&linkCode=sl2&tag=cl03f-20&linkId=75311e309f665faa168ee87ace466571&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl]https://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=20906611011&linkCode=sl2&tag=cl03f-20&linkId=75311e309f665faa168ee87ace466571&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl[/size][size]]AMEX




This is the link:    [/size][size=78%]https://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=20906611011&linkCode=sl2&tag=cl03f-20&linkId=75311e309f665faa168ee87ace466571&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl[/size][size]


I want to add [ url= link ]AMEX[/ url]  (without the spaces and any [ size] additions)[/size]

Not sure that's a working link, but either way
Code: [Select]
[url=https://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=20906611011]AMEX[/url]

Beautiful!  You did it, thank you. 

Can you do the same for:
[ url= https://www.dansdeals.com/credit-cards/targeted-offer-use-1-discover-point-get-20-40-off-amazon-apple-airpods-2nd-gen-just-79-99/ ]Discover[/ url]

When I do it correctly without the four added spaces it comes out like this:
[url=https://www.dansdeals.com/credit-cards/targeted-offer-use-1-discover-point-get-20-40-off-amazon-apple-airpods-2nd-gen-just-79-99/]https://www.dansdeals.com/credit-cards/targeted-offer-use-1-discover-point-get-20-40-off-amazon-apple-airpods-2nd-gen-just-79-99/]Discover


When I have time maybe y'all can help me figure out why this keeps happening. TBC.

Can someone clarify for me?

1. I click a DDMS link to see if I have an Amex offer for Amazon.
2. Amazon shows I do NOT have that offer.
3. I copy/paste the url of the page showing I do not have an offer.
4. If that url is made into a link, will the person clicking it get my "no offer" page or will they get a page with their own offer?

5.  If they get my offer, how do I copy a url that will get them their own offer?
     If Dan has a referral link in there, I want to keep that, but I want to avoid having two steps to get to the Amazon page by
     needing to go through the DDMS page first.

4, it's the offer page not person specific.
The links are made up of different parts the node is for the offer and the tag is for the DD link.
