The generic Twine 1 markup link should look something like one of the following, notice that there are no space characters before/after the Link Text or before/after the Target Passage Title.
Could you supply an example of the markup link that does not work.
"<span class="choice">try to escape.</span>"
I was also not sure if the the quotes surrounding your example were there to distinguish the example or if you want the generated link to be shown wrapped in quotes so I tested both.
Please use the C button in the toolbar above the Comment field to wrap your code examples in code tags, it makes them easier to read.
I tested the following using the latest release of both versions of SugarCube (1 and 2) in Chrome / Firefox / IE / Edge on Windows 10, and both links sent me to a passage titled try to escape. (notice the full stop on the end of the passage title, it needs to be in the passage's title because it is in the markup link)
Here's what the code looks like:
My problem is that although "alive." is written between double brackets, it doesn't register as a link. In my storybuilder area a line is connecting the passages "Start" and "alive.", and I can edit the "alive." passage but the Start page of my game doesn't provide a link of any kind. It's just plain text that appears in double brackets tauntingly.
This time I created a Story using Sugarcane with your latest example cut-n-pasted into the Start passage, and the link displayed correctly and worked as expected.
It is difficult to debug a passage using only snippets of it's contents.
Which operating system (brand, version, 32/64bit) and web-browser (brand, version) are you using?
Could you try retitling the 'alive.' passage to be 'alive' (without the full stop) and changing the markup link to be the following and see if that works. ... it is generally not a good idea to use punctuation/meta-characters in your passage titles, as it can cause issues.
I tried retitling the passage to "alive" instead of "alive." but to no avail.
Links are broken in my other passages as well. They're recognized as outgoing and incoming links, but when I test the story they're still busted. Would it be more helpful if I pasted an entire passage here?
