Conversations Hello,

one thing that always annoys me (not only on this site, also on a couple of others) is that it's always some kind of hassle to find the linked articles, because the small blurbs often don't contain only one underlined word, mostly they contain between 2 and 5 of them. And it's not always easy to spot which one of them is the one that got used for the link.

For longer articles, we already have a nice, bright, orange "Read More"-link. Why not introduce a "Read The Article"-link as well? It wouldn't have to mean omitting the links inside the blurb, of course, but it would be a nice, additional feature for those who are [link]http://www.bedsdirect.com/|| ||tired[/link] of [link]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Always_(Erasure_song)||always[/link] having to [link]http://www.google.com|| ||find[/link] the [link]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/c3/Right.svg/... ||right[/link] link.

Okay, so maybe it's not the best example. But otherwise, it's exactly the thing that I mean ;)

Because often, there is indeed only ONE article, and some people tend to link to other things as well, like e.g. linking the word "KDE" to kde.org and so on. And this is exactly the thing that is very confusing sometimes. I'd prefer to have a "Read The Article"-link below the post, in orange, just like the "Read More"-link that is available on some postings.

Because then, the link to the article would always be at the same position and could be easily found.
