TECHIE TIPS: Short eBay links


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: ---
--- End code ---

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

--- Code: ---
--- End code ---

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.,,, etc - just change the 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: ---
--- End code ---
- e.g. links to items for sale by Angela.

Simple isn't it?  8)
