Yes, and I still can't see the general benefit to the average forum admin. I've been on this board 7 months now, tracking many kinds of mod requests.

I have only seen coding links requested by two people, and both for warez sites. I don't see the use in a non-warez site - at all.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Actually, I can see a use for this outside of warez.

I run a mapping / modding site for the cod series, and we only allow registered users to access our download section (where we have all our maps / mods)

However, we get some people who upload to places like rapidshare and megeupload, as they get a faster upload or something. This is annoying, as admins / mods have to download them, reupload them to our download section, and change the link.

If we could have something like this, it would help us.

I'm not sure how that would. You'd still have to change the link.

Well we get them to code the link as it is, so it would only show if they weren't a guest.

I can quite easily make another BBC for this, such as [download][/download] (actually, OP, this might be a better solution!) but I was just saying there is other uses.

If you want to hide from guests, use the Registered Links mod.

hmmm coding "things, links" also offers presentation, it does look like a cleaner post where many links, or other batch's of text is.

Similar to quoting, I mean what looks better, using quote BBC or just tying the previous post.

I would thing Auto coding links would have a presentation purpose only, although it would mask the link(s) at the same time.

As an Admin, I can see the potential in masking links, but only because I hate posts with live links inside, people with slow internet get slow loading scrips, and one thing I hate is accidentally clicking a link because the script finally loaded right before I click something else and the whole page moved, if links were masked they would not be live links so no accidental navigating away from the page.

This thread already has how to turn a single link into a block of code, in fact.

I'm just not doing the extra part of it that merges several of them together.

The code for that "single link" is already here, you can use that for single links.

That's what you essentially need though.

It's not the request that is irking me. It is your incessant badgering and bumping of this topic. After someone has said that they aren't going to fulfill your request you need to stop asking them. It is beyond annoying. So, with that said, learn to do it, pay someone to do it, or like everyone else, wait peacefully for someone to do it.
