Post Settings

It is necessary to store certain URLs in the post settings for easy retrieval, these include:

  1. The Forum Topic
  2. LEGO Ideas Project
  3. Building Instructions

Forum Topic URL

Each MOC Blog Post should have a corresponding topic in the LEGO Pirates Forum – if it does not, you will need to create one.

For imported topics the Topic URL will often be set automatically.

If not, you will need to manually copy and paste the URL into the Eurobricks Topic URL Input field.

When extracting the URL, ensure it links to the first post, not one of the replies.

To do so, delete the parameters from the URL – the parameters are everything after the final forward slash.

For example:
https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/186997-moc-captain-redbeard-faces-budget-cuts/&do=findComment&comment=3437670

Becomes:
https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/186997-moc-captain-redbeard-faces-budget-cuts/

So the following is deleted: &do=findComment&comment=3437670


LEGO Ideas Project URL

If a MOC which has been submitted to LEGO Ideas, include the Project URL.

A typical LEGO Ideas Project URL will look like:

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/984edd06-6718-4053-bcfe-2ea38bdc259c

Again, ensure you’re linking to the main tab by deleting the parameters from the URL.

For example:
https://ideas.lego.com/projects/984edd06-6718-4053-bcfe-2ea38bdc259c/comments_tab#content_nav_tabs

Becomes:
https://ideas.lego.com/projects/984edd06-6718-4053-bcfe-2ea38bdc259c/

So the following is deleted: comments_tab#content_nav_tabs


Building Instructions

If the MOC builder has made building instructions available, copy and paste the URL to webpage hosting building instructions.

Building instructions will be usually digitally available on websites like ReBrickable or the BrickLink Designer Program, however, occasionally they will be hosted on the builder’s own website.
