Magnet links on download page

#1 Post by ferdnyc » Fri Feb 22, 2013 10:12 pm

This is actually more of a website request than a UBCD request, but I didn't see a forum for that.

On one of the download methods listed for UBCD is BitTorrent via a magnet URL. However, the URL is only presented in plain text.

I have a magnet: handler (Bit Torrent WebUI+ Firefox extension) installed that allows me to click magnet: links, and will automatically add them to Vuze running on my fileserver... but only if the magnet links are actual, yaknow, links.


Code: Select all

// BAD:

// GOOD:
<a href="magnet:?xt=urn:btih:5TSCWBSDWZCMITHZ4VT4UZF7LG5NJZAC">magnet link</a>
// (...or even...)
<a href="magnet:?xt=urn:btih:5TSCWBSDWZCMITHZ4VT4UZF7LG5NJZAC"><pre>magnet:?xt=urn:btih:5TSCWBSDWZCMITHZ4VT4UZF7LG5NJZAC</pre></a> 
It'd be great if the magnet links were presented as actual links, in addition to plain text. Thanks!
