Ok; 6 of these couldn't be done automatically as they contained search parameters that broke with a simple search-and-replace. I edited those manually to fix the links. The remaining posts were re-written en mass to fix the links, and won't be bumped to the homepage. https://judaism.stackexchange.com/search?q=url%3Achabadlibrary.org%2Fbooks%2Fdefault.aspx

After some discussion with our SRE team, I have some good news: these redirects will be working by the end of Shabbat.* There are a couple of caveats, however: We are using Cloudflare's free plan which doesn't really offer a service level agreement (SLA). HTTPS is included so you can use links like: https://yodeya.com/q/1 It's possible that service will go ...

Ok, I've updated some things in cloudflare: I expect the following links to all work (after dns propagation): http://yodeya.com/questions/12760 https://yodeya.com/questions/12760 https://www.yodeya.com/questions/12760 http://mi.yodeya.com/questions/12760 https://mi.yodeya.com/questions/12760 http://meta.yodeya.com/questions/4171 http://meta.mi.yodeya.com/...

No The standard link-only comment text states While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes. This applies just as much to MY questions/answers as external sites. Answers can get deleted and/or ...

To include a link in a post or comment, put the link text in square brackets followed immediately by the link (URL) in parentheses, like this: [this meta question](https://judaism.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4346/trouble-linking-something-properly) That renders as: this meta question (There's another way to indicate links, but I find the one I've ...

You clarified in a comment that you "wanted to ask how to make it do it even when clicked on with a usual click" -- that is, you're asking not how the viewer can control this but how you can cause it at the source. In the Markdown that Stack Exchange uses, you can't. That's a special HTML directive and posts aren't written (directly) in HTML. I would also ...

To make links in comments (this works in posts and chat, too), use the format: [here](https://judaism.stackexchange.com/editing-help#comment-formatting) For more information on formatting comments, click on the "help" link to the right of the comment-entry box. For even more information, click on "Learn more..." there, or just click here to go to the FAQ ...

Deleted posts (questions and answers) are only available to users with at least 10k rep; they're not visible to the public. So most people following the link from the comment won't see anything. You can see the question (even though you don't have 10k rep) because you asked it. Nobody else under 10k can see it. Comments are second-class citizens on Stack ...

If you are able to replace the broken link (you know what it should be), please edit the post. If it's broken but you don't know what to replace it with, please add a comment pointing out the problem. (Feel free to also point it out in chat, particularly if it's an older post where people are less likely to see your comment on their own.) If it's a link-...

It's nonstandard to make all links have dotted underlines, and it's not the best idea. Nowadays, on the Web, a dotted underline is usually used to indicate an abbreviation; when you hover your mouse over the abbreviation, you'll see an infotip (tooltip) with its expansion. Click this link to see a page with a demo. Therefore, to avoid confusion: Dotted ...

I wanted to make a wiki to combine answers and add, perhaps by category: Mechon Mamre - Tanach, Talmud, some Rishonim Vikitekst (Wikitext) - Lots of different sefarim, Talmud with Rashi and Tosefos Toras Emes (Ateres) - Tanach, Talmud, Rambam, Halacha, Mussar, lots of stuff. Sources on the Net - Tanach, Talmud, Rambam, Halacha, lots of other categories.

use the middle button on your mouse when clicking on the link. In the unlikely event that you don't have a middle button, right click, and select the option to 'Open Link in a New Tab'
