Don't we want or can implement quick links to any set database, e.g. BrickSet.com, to make linking set ids more handy?

P.S.

I've just published a small Firefox search plugin for the same purpose.

I'm sure it's possible to implement (perhaps using the word filter), I'd certainly find it very helpful.

Something like this?

[bs:5590]

Links to set 5590 on Brickset and...

[bl:5590]

...links to the same set but on Bricklink. Linking to pieces would be helpful too.

  • I could help to implement that as being a programmer, with pleasure. I thing RegEx filter "only digits, 4 or 5 symbols long" will be enough, will it not? – abatishchev Dec 15 '11 at 12:15
  • The key thing is the brackets and identifier. See the work Kevin did on the part image links we've also proposed. – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Dec 15 '11 at 17:25
  • Perhaps I could be of assistance here? – annonymously Dec 16 '11 at 8:59
  • @Ambo100 the code I'm looking to get added for part images already does linking to parts, I'll try and add this in - my concern here is that BrickSet for example adds additional identifiers on to the set number. See the work here meta.bricks.stackexchange.com/questions/62/code-to-insert-parts – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Dec 16 '11 at 9:05
  • To clarify, would we be happy linking to the primary set with this? For example, the City Airport theme had a few "promotional" re-releases of some sets, that are listed as -2 of the same set number? bricklink.com/… – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Dec 16 '11 at 9:08

I've added this feature to the BrickJax code that can be seen here:

Code to insert parts

This is also available as a greasemonkey/user script linked from the same page.
