Main post I've written a userscript that accomplishes this locally (i.e., no server call). It allows you to use a markdown-like syntax to automatically create a link to anywhere in Tanach, Talmud Bavli, and Mishna Torah. The Tanach links go by default to Chabad.org, but you can make it go to Mechon Mamre if you so desire. Talmud Bavli goes to HebrewBooks....

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 ...

Dr. Melech Tanen's "Sources on the Net" is such a reference.

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 ...

This might also be useful for earlier works: http://rabbinics.org/

There are some requests on other sites (mostly academic sites), all in a similar vein of handling and smoothing the process for citations. We're currently looking into methods for handling this on a much broader scale. As progress is made on that front, we'll be able to look into how we may be able to integrate the system you've found here, into whatever our ...

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-...

This has been declined on Meta.StackOverflow: Replace links with the current question title in comments However, @TimStone has been kind enough to write a userscript that accomplishes this, and I've been using it for a while. It only replaces them on submission though, so this is a userscript for the writer, and not the reader.

WikiText (וויקיטקסט) is also really great!! http://he.wikisource.org/wiki/עמוד_ראשי (Thanks to @Moses here)

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'

You can look in the sidebar, in the "related" section. There the title of the question is displayed.
