Description

Basically it turns this:

into this:

The item number becomes a link and when you click on the form field with the URL it will automatically select itself so it can be easily copied to the clipboard. The URL is always the short version, and will be appropriate for whatever version/language you're using. No more annoying long links when you share with friends.

So for instance while vising a page with this url:

http:// cgi.ebay.com/Valve-Class-A-Tube-Headphone-Amplifier-preamp-audio-amp_W0QQitemZ260495668768QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3ca6c07620

the URL this script provides is:

http:// www. ebay.com/itm/260495668768
