How do I post links in comments and commands in chat?

Whenever I post a link with a tag in comments, it doesn't work. And whenever I post a command with backtics in chat, it also doesn't work.

  • Why are you asking multiple questions in the same post? You are asking how to do different times in different places, which doesn't seem to fit in the same post. – jokerdino Dec 14 '13 at 13:46

Chat uses a more limited version of markdown, most of the formatting you're used to should still work. For example:

Posting links: [link text](http://linkuri)

Posting tag links: [tag:tagname]

Posting images: imageuri (or !imageuri if the link doesn't end with an image extension)

Posting code: wrap in backticks like normal

A lot of content will also onebox, for example posting a question link or an answer link from any Stack Exchange site will onebox in chat, images will onebox and certain media will (for example, YouTube links)
