Trick 3.0: Link to comment

Hello everyone!

Last week one of our support representatives have been contacted by one of the new creators, and he has mentioned that he wishes to have the easy way to share links to the comments (the functionality that we have on 2.0 and which is not presented on 3.0 unfortunately). Of course, the suggestion has been created and passed to the management, however, if the immediate solution is required you can use the following code :

<script>
var com_link;
var split1, split2, split3, split4;
var com_id;
var func_click = function(elmnt, e){
e.preventDefault();
com_link = x$(elmnt).attr('href');
x$('#myInput').attr('value', com_link);
var copyText = document.getElementById("myInput");
copyText.select();
document.execCommand("Copy");
x$(elmnt).append('<div class="temp1" style="position:absolute; padding: 15px; border: 1px solid; border-color: black; background-color:white; color:black;z-index:9999"><p>Link copied to the clipboard</p><div>');
setTimeout(function(){ x$('.temp1').remove(); }, 3000);
};

x$(window).load(function ()
{
var del = setInterval(function ()
{
if (x$('.comments-comment ').length)
{
if(x$('.entry-comments .com_link').length==0)
{x$('.entry-comments .comments-comment ').each( function(){
com_id = x$(this).attr('data-comment-id');
com_link = window.location.href;
split1 = com_link.split("?");
split2 = split1[0].split("=");
split3 = split2[0].split("&");
split4 = split3[0].split("#");
x$(this).children('.comments-commentBody').children('.media-body').children('.comments-actions').append('<a class="comments-action com_link" href="'+ split4[0] +'=show?commentId=' +com_id +'" onclick="func_click(this, event);">Link</a>');
});
}
if(x$('.commentWallSection .com_link').length==0)
{x$('.commentWallSection .comments-comment ').each( function(){
com_id = x$(this).attr('data-comment-id');
com_link = window.location.href;
split1 = com_link.split("?");
split2 = split1[0].split("=");
split3 = split2[0].split("&");
split4 = split3[0].split("#");
x$(this).children('.comments-commentBody').children('.media-body').children('.comments-actions').append('<a class="comments-action com_link" href="'+ split4[0] +'?commentId=' +com_id +'" onclick="func_click(this, event);">Link</a>');
});
}
}
}, 100);
});
</script>
<input type="text" value="test" id="myInput" style="height:20px; margin-bottom:-20px; position: absolute; left:-9999px;">

The code should be inserted into the custom code, end of page field, after the code you have there.

About its work, there simply one new link called "Link" would appear in the action panel of the comments, once pressed the link to the comment would be copied to the clipboard and the message would show up that the link has been copied to the clipboard. 

If there are any suggestions how the functionality could be modified to be more user-friendly, please let me know and I'll update teh code :-)

P.S. I know regex could be used to split the link, but I'm still not good at it, that's why we have 4 beautiful variables :-)

P.S.S If there are any suggestions to optimize the code, don't hesitate to post them in the replies

Hope it helps
