Semi-bug: Link shortening and printing

    Hello,

    no, I'm not asking for a printing-version-feature, because with some CSS media queries, printing threads works well.

    Except for one thing (Problem first, idea for simple solution then):

    Code:
    [url]http://mylooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonglink.com[/url]
    gets shortened with ...:
    http://mylooooooooooooooooooooooooo...ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonglink.com
    even on the printed page. Because this happens on PHP side, it can't be solved with some CSS alone.

    While a small plugin could solve this, it would be nice too see something like the following in XF2:

    Instead of something like
    Code:
    <a href="http://myloooooooooooooooooonglink.com">
    http://mylo...onglink.com
    </a>
    the Base Formatter shortener could generate
    Code:
    <a href="http://myloooooooooooooooooonglink.com">
    http://mylo
    <span class=myhiddenlinkpart>ooooooooooo</span>
    <span class=myvisiblelinkpart>...</span>
    onglink.com
    </a>
    Ie. the two spans with content instead of just "..."
    Then some CSS like
    Code:
    .myvisiblelinkpart {}
    .myhiddenlinkpart { display:none; }
    
    With this, it would be enough to just switch these two classes in the print version CSS.
