Link-question (how do I add links?)

Dear all,

when creating links (e.g. using the markdown-editor and the Hyperlink-button, I frequently end up with something like this: [] (; and of course this does not work.

In the WYSIWYG-editor & the Hyperlink-button, when adding the same link, I end up with, which does not work either (even produces an error message).

What am I doing wrong?

In the first example you're meant to place some link text inside the square brackets. For example

[A really cool note taking app](

Renders as
A really cool note taking app

As you can see, leaving the first part blank will make the link disappear.

Because you seem to be comfortable using links like i would suggest you go into the setting under the markdown section and "enable Linkify" this will make it so that an old link is clickable in the rendered view.

I see. So the "Hyperlink"-box actually does not ask for a hyperlink but merely for what I want this hyperlink to be called ...

Thanks for pointing that out.
