This is a stack exchange markup question. When I add a URL to another post such as:

Weekly Featured Image: Week of August 6, 2012

Stackexchange auto updates the URL to display the question title. I know that a way exists to do this in comments, but can't figure it out.

    Would this make sense as a feature request? – dpollitt Aug 2 '12 at 13:01

I don't know of an automatic manner, but you can do [Link title](http://meta.photo.stackexchange.com/questions/2405/weekly-featured-image-week-of-august-6-2012) still, and it will do the "right thing"

  • That will have to work! I'm not so concerned about the amount of work, I just find it much more useful to see the post title rather than the URL. It should generate more clicks! – dpollitt Aug 2 '12 at 13:01

As far as I know, there is nothing automatic. You have to insert an inline markdown link yourself. (If there is a better way, I will feel silly, since I've been doing it the tedious way.)

(Exception: when you mark a post as a duplicate, the appropriate comment is generated automatically with the title rather than raw URL.)
