[request] Title of thread now in IMs?


Is this new?
I've just noticed that when you right-click and copy an address to send to someone in an IM (eg, when you want to send someone a link to a thread you posted in, etc), that now after you send the IM, rather than it showing you the html link as it did in the past . .

it now shows you the title of the thread?

If this is new, well, then, THANKS!! VERY COOL!!

I hadn't noted that, but I sure will now. That is a terrific improvement. The Zen Master did it again with this addition.

Very good there but it should also apply to FAQ's and News links on the site. Found it didn't work in my other thread in the /devnull forum.

One little gripe about this. It still only shows the URL instead of the link in quotes. An example is shown here: »(post #7733855 no longer exists)

Great addition! Now, I don't have to worry about putting punctuation at the end of the link.

Double Your Title Fun!
Great addition, and I really like it.
I'd suggest some clean-up, though.
Now, if you click the IM link in a post, the generated message in effect doubles up the title.

Yup, you're right

When previewing . . .
I see what you mean db, yes.

And further, when you "preview" an IM you are about to send to someone, the "title" doesn't appear at this point, rather the HTML, but once it is sent the title then appears in the IM that the person receives.
