Earlier today on a thread about Norway lights, I provided 2 links on thus subject. The MOD was kind enough to redo the links I provided so it wasn't a direct or "Hot Link" if you will (so I'm guessing as it cost ATS money).. it's an important necessity and understood


I did not get dinged on it as the nice mod made the necessary changes... however I've been here since 2013 and have no idea how to link a source without having to do so directly.

Yes it's always stated contact the MOD that made changes, but in this case there's no beef and more a thanks. I got no mail... I think anyone with an understanding of ATS can answer this silly question of mine so I can correctly do it in the future. Hence hoping anybody could tutorial.

Short story🤗
How is it done to not hotlink? When I link something, how do I take the precautions to correctly link a source...
I generally copy paste from the www http address above..

Thanks in advance😊



Edit: example..

Example of what I'm asking.. May have said sound cloud but changed🙂

Did you paste your link into the post text field or use the "insert content from a news source" button above the post text field?

I know what hotlinking a pic is. Not sure what a hot link, link is though.

I copy from here for example..

Then paste it in my post.

I remember a couple years back the owner's put up a thread on it.. I've had content removed long ago for doing it without actually understanding how to not do so. That's why I believe I have done again unintentionally. But would like to learn how not to.

I always use the "insert content from a news source" button or the "insert content from a external source" button. Not sure the T&C's say you have to, but it does look better that way.

ETA: Above the field were you are typing your post into are buttons, if you hover the mouse over them you can find the right button.
