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]
so to link to eBay item number 110162282925 your code would read:

Code: [Select]
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)
