While giving comments many times I wanted to add links to my comment. But instead of using some short hand like Read "this" (this is a link in this case) I had to write Read "http:\\www.somelink.com". I tried ctrl+L to insert a link to my comment but it was of no use.

I have seen people inserting links to their comments in the above mentioned way. How? Hope I have made myself clear.

  • What about links containing '(' and ')' like this one: technet.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/cc784450(v=ws.10).aspx ? – Miguel Angelo Feb 7 '14 at 19:24

    @MiguelAngelo - %28 and %29 can be used for ( and ) respectively, just like %20 can be used to represent a space. YourExample = [YourExample](http://technet.microsoft.com/pt-br/library/cc784450%28v=ws.10%29.aspx) – MatBailie Mar 6 '14 at 16:38

  • I do not get why is the syntax different than the one for adding comments in questions/answers bodies – Veverke Aug 2 '15 at 15:13

  • I think that's because lightning:tab is in Beta right now(But not sure why they haven't mentioned that in the link which you've included in the question). lightning:tab (Beta) @TrevorBliss @JFParadis – SE_User Jan 18 '17 at 12:50
  • Yes, the above method is the solution to put insert the link. But one caution that you should insert HTTP:// before your link. Otherwise, it will not be linked. – NomanJaved Nov 5 '17 at 7:36
