Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think there is a bug with the editor.

  1. Create a inline codeblock with the back ticks. SomeClassName

  2. Double click the single word which highlights SomeClassName.

  3. Click add a link and save it. [SomeClassName][1]

  4. Notice how it is rendered. It puts the link code inside the back ticks.

I feel that the add a link should be smart enough to wrap the back ticks in this case. I generally like to link to MSDN stuff like this. See my answer here: How to create my custom helper in asp.net MVC?

Sorry, I responded explaining how to create a code link manualy, but I have checked that using the mouse and the "add link" button, and have found the buggy behaviour reported by @Daniel exactly as he says (+1). – Tomas Narros Mar 23 '11 at 14:45

"I feel that the add a link should be smart enough to wrap the back ticks in this case" -- so how would you handle the case when you selected on part of the code block? – balpha Mar 23 '11 at 15:55
    
I'm not sure. Could it be if i select the whole back ticked block? – Daniel A. White Mar 23 '11 at 15:56
