Idea: Paste links in the editor


(Ionuț Staicu) #1

Hey guys. If any of you uses WordPress, will know what I’m talking about. For others… I’ll explain.

So, in the WordPress editor, if you select a text and you press CTRL+V, it will do one of the following:

  • if the clipboard content is a valid url, it will insert the link with the selected text as anchor;
  • if the clipboard content is not a valid url, it will just overwrite the selected text.

I think it would be nice to just skip few steps (CTRL+K + CTRL+V + enter).

Any chance that this would be implemented on Discourse? :slight_smile:

(also, what’s up with the undo? it’s simply broken if you use any toolbar/shortcut)

Er… what? That sounds confusing. I’m confused! What would that do?

Alright, so I’ve made a short video:

Obviously enough, this should insert markdown instead.
