Just a very small tutorial that may be handy for some users.

Currently, when you paste a link into your sta.sh writer, comments, artworks descriptions, etc, it turns into a thumbnail. But somethimes, you would like it to remain a link. How to?

Paste your link.

Move the mouse over the thumbnail, it shall show the options below. Click on Link and the thumbnail will transform into a link to the deviation/journal.

Sometimes, not all options will be avaliable. If that happens, scale the thumbnail up (if it is too small, Link may not appear).

Alternatively some of the html is fun, you can make images into links and such

Yup ^^ =D
though this was mostly meant to explain how to avoid the latest mess up... Now, when you post a link to a DA work, it will automatically turn into a thumb, which is annoying =D

For some reason, whenever I attempt to insert the thumbs of a deviation it turns up as something like this: <da:thumb id="486789584">.

It's rather odd and I know not the reason for this occurrence.

I must be using HTML then not rich text. XD
