I have recently been exploring the new web application Trello and I want to add hyperlinks to a card.

Is this possible?

Like Stack Exchange, Trello allows MarkDown in card descriptions, so you can put links into them using this type of syntax:

Click [here](http://www.whatever.com) to go to the page.

Which will give

Click here to go to the page.

To clarify, Trello allows MarkDown in the description field of a card. You can use a markdown formatted link ([Google](http://www.google.com)), or you can just type put a URL (like http://www.google.com) and it will be converted to a link

Card comments don't allow markdown, but they can also contain URLs, which will be converted to links. Some URLs (like ones for youtube) will be converted to previews using embed.ly

An example of the different kinds of links

Just a note that there can't be a space between the last square bracket and the opening parenthesis - this tripped me up. – Chris B Mar 10 '15 at 16:19

Trello does support markdown hyperlink in card's comment, now.

Example: Click here to go to the page. (thanks @ben-k)

How would you add this? Can you give an example? – Andrew Lott Jul 25 '14 at 10:02
Come on! Are you serious about this? Have you read the whole discussion? _________________________________________________________________________________________ 1. Markdown is markdown. I just stated that it was now supported in card's comment as it was in other Trello parts 2. Two previous answers (@ben-k and @daniel-lecheminant) were given with the syntax for markdown hyperlinks 3. It's even described when you fill a comment in SE!! – Guillaume Jul 26 '14 at 19:21
