No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"
Why not take a look on book-seek.com

TECHIE TIPS: Short eBay links
« on: March 03, 2008, 01:59:06 PM »
If you know the number of an eBay item but the link is one of those long scrolling forever types which seems to be 6 feet long, don't despair!  You can use this easy method to post to any eBay item just by inserting the item number onto the end of this link code:

Code: [Select]
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=
so to link to eBay item number 110162282925 your code would read:

Code: [Select]
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110162282925
then just copy that link and paste it into your message on the board.

The same principle works for the other ebay country sites too, e.g. ebay.com, ebay.de, ebay.com.au, etc - just change the .co.uk part of the domain name to the ebay country site you are using.

If you want to link to a listings by a particular seller, then use this format - changing the last section shown here as xxxxx to the ebay seller name:
Code: [Select]
http://shop.ebay.co.uk/merchant/xxxxx - e.g.
http://shop.ebay.co.uk/merchant/book-seek.com links to items for sale by Angela.

Simple isn't it?  8)
