    Didn't it cross your mind to click the "help" link to the right, below the "Add Comment" button? The answer is the very first sentence in this help: Comments use mini-Markdown formatting: [link](http://example.com) _italic_ bold code. The post author will always be notified of your comment. To also notify a previous commenter, mention their user name: @peter or @PeterSmith will both work (no offence, but clicking help links should be common knowledge :)) – Shadow Feb 6 '12 at 15:22

Yes. Simply put the text of the link between [ ] and follow it immediately with the URL between ( ), and it will be a link.

  • Unless it's a Java documentation link, of course. – Grant Thomas Feb 6 '12 at 15:20

    Why don't all you testing-commenters remove your comment after your test is complete? You could also at least comment on something of your own, to prevent the poster of this Answer from being spammed with a notification from your comment... You're leaving cluttering garbage here otherwise... – cellepo Nov 21 '18 at 2:32
