Please allow changing markdown link style


#1

Hi there,

I don’t like the way the Discourse topic editor creates links in Markdown:

[Example][1]

  [1]: http://example.com

On a long post, this makes it harder to change the link, because you have to scroll around looking for the link URL. I much prefer the normal Markdown link method:

  [Example](http://example.com)

Would it be possible to add an option to switch this default?

Thanks a lot!

There are no plans to change that at this time.

If not a change to the default setting, a configuration option would be much appreciated.
