New Link Tag on Pen.io
Probably the most requested feature has been a more elegant way to handle URL’s or Links on Pen.io. Before this more recent update, the only way to add a link to a Pen.io page was through HTML.
You can still add links using HTML but now you can also make use of a couple of new features for URL’s:
By default, if you enter any URL into a Pen.io page, it will automatically link to its destination. No more having to enter HTML. This makes it super quick to to share a bunch or URL’s.
The :link Tag
Autolinks work great, but how do you change the link text?
To use the :link tag:
:link The Link Text Goes Here http://thelinkurlgoesattheend.com
To recap, put :link followed by any text you want hyperlinked and finish it off with the actual URL you want to link to. Unlike HTML there is no escape tags.
