  • Added truncatelink option (explained below)
  • Added URL formatting filters to modify how links are truncated so you can choose to display the anchor text exactly as you want (the URL itself won't change). The link text http://example.example.choicehotels.com/hotel/tx173 becomes choicehotels.com, but will still link to the full URL.
