Can I get into trouble if I do this in game and a GM notices it?

0x12 0x35 /sit 0x12

That will generate a link that executes /sit :P

The problem I am encountering with the tool is while trying to use the %T flag to express my Target, it does not express my target. The Fake Link works just fine, but it prints the actual Text "%T" and not my Target. Any suggestions?

The link to this on the articles page is missing the .php

I was wondering if this can be used to give /blockspell command? Wanting to send a tell when I use group pact of wolf on players for quick haste rebuff, so they can click the link and buff block the werewolf illusion.

Good catch, got this fixed, thanks!

I don't know of a way to make links execute commands.  But even if I did, it's not something I would share with anyone but the developers, as that opens up the possibility of abuse, and would likely cause DayBreak to fix the bug allowing fake links altogether.

You're welcome!

That's true, someone would use for nefarious reasons if it was that easy. Closest it will get is to /say /blockspell which might still work, but they will have to shift + up arrow, then delete /say to use the command. Will probably just make a hotkey to let people know before I use the buff so they can block the illusion portion.

Unfortunately, no.

Is there a way to choose what is linked instead of the one the site chooses?  I used to know how to link something then retrieve it from the log file and use that but I cant make it work now.

Yes, but it is a little more complicated.  In game, type ;t then the item link, and hit enter.  You'll get an error with a bunch of numbers - replace all the numbers that our tool generated with the numbers from the error.  They must be precise or it won't work.  This trick won't work for items with one word names for some reason.

Was testing out the npc dialogue fake link. Was working on the character who had the social, but I was not able to click on the link on an alt.

Yes, this link was nerfed some time back.
