Example of {{fullurl}}[edit]

To me, {{fullurl}} seems like a much better way to link to diffs than just a simple (albeit faster) copy/paste. As a user of the secure server, http links are a little annoying because they needlessly take me to a server where I'm not logged in. Should the examples be changed to something along the lines of [{{fullurl:Main_Page&diff=212488423&oldid=210742813}}]? (A similar note was added to Wikipedia talk:Simplest diff guide and Wikipedia talk:Simple diff and link guide.)—C45207 | Talk 07:55, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

There were no comments, so I've made a change [1]. Comments welcome. Numbers 2 and 3 in the "How to put diffs and links into your text" section could be switched, depending on what we want to emphasize.—C45207 | Talk 04:16, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

How to link to a log doesn't seem to work[edit]

When I click on the example in the "How to link to a log," I get the full log instead of a time restricted one. Nobody Ent 16:46, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
