# How long has [tour] automatically linked to the tour page?

I was linking to the tour page as I usually do in Markdown (square brackets followed by parentheses) when I noticed that typing "[tour]" was linking to the tour page by itself and the link in parentheses was just being displayed as plain text.

Is this a recent addition to the site, or have I just been oblivious to it all this time?

• Years, at any rate. Most of the comment shortcuts have been around for a long time, long enough for several rounds of feature requests to ask for expansions. Oct 21 '16 at 4:49
