I would like site specific magic links.
Currently you can write
[so] in a comment, and it links like this: Stack Overflow.
I would like to be able to have site specific ones, so for example:
English Language & Usage
[dictionary]would go to
http://dictionary.comand shows as Dictionary.com
[launchpad]would go to
https://launchpad.net/ubuntuand shows as Launchpad
[launchpad#bugnum]would go to
https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/bugnumand shows as Bug #bugnum
[forums]would go to
http://ubuntuforums.org/and sows as Ubuntu Forums
[discourse]would go to
http://discourse.ubuntu.comand shows as Ubuntu Discourse
[pastebinit]would go to
http://paste.ubuntu.comand shows as Ubuntu Pastebin
[install-d]would go to
http://ubuntu.com/download/desktop/install-ubuntu-desktopand shows as Install Ubuntu Desktop
[install-s]would go to
http://ubuntu.com/download/server/install-ubuntu-serverand shows as Install Ubuntu Server
ppa:peterlevi/ppawould go to
https://launchpad.net/~peterleviand shows as ppa:peterlevi/ppa
[applesup]would go to
http://www.apple.com/supportand shows as Apple Support
[bible]would go to
http://biblegateway.comand shows as Bible Gateway
Currently, they are all the same, for all sites. I would like devs (mods maybe) to be able to add them on a per site basis.
This is just a selection of examples. People can comment or answer with ones they would like and I'll edit them into this question.
I asked this because the question on Ask Ubuntu Meta wasn't possible right now - because it wasn't a feature.
[The devs] said right now it isn't possible because magic links are network wide, and they weren't sure it was high enough priority to really get done anytime soon, but if you want you can post a feature-request on Meta Stack Exchange requesting site specific magic links and see if you can garner more support for the feature and maybe get a dev to champion it.
So that's what I've done!
