SO and GitHub have an easy way to format hyperlinks by hiding the URL behind some descriptive text by enclosing the text in brackets followed by an URL in parentheses.
How can I do something similar in SharePoint when writing blog comments? This product has such a horrible UX.. I'm about to rip my hair out.
I tried the SO method, no go. I tried a few others based on other WIKIs I had used: no luck. I then tried injecting an actual HTML anchor tag
<a href='url'>text</a> and then magically it shows me a link formatting form beneath the comment textarea, which got me there, but then I had to go back and clean up the comment text to make it look right.
What's the proper method?
The goal is to have a hyperlink with text such as "Developer Notes" instead of an ugly 256-character URL. Apparently nobody in my organization has figured this out yet because every post they make contains the giant ugly URL, which also means you hit the max-character limit sooner. Please help!
