Plugin to link a game name to external site?


#1

It would be great if we could highlight a game name in a post and hit a button a bit like the link button, but one that would let us link to a game on mobygames/gamefaqs/rfgeneration/glitchwave to enable people to easily find out more about it.

It could also be a shortcut for easily embedding images of a game. I always think discussion is much richer when there are images and links to support the text.

Lastly, if a discourse plugin needs creating I’d happily volunteer to create it.

I read that this exists https://meta.discourse.org/t/linkify-words-in-post/82193

With this plugin, correctly configured, we could type Downhill Domination (PS2) and it would automatically become Downhill Domination (PS2), or similar.

I think this is a great idea and I’ve brought it up with the team.
