It would be nice to have possibility to create links to news and forums (not only messages) in formatted text like it is done for Wiki pages, documents, etc.

The reason is to be able to refer forums from Wiki pages to describe which forum is for what purposes and to give users recommendations in Wiki how to use them.
Another reason is to refer to news in issues as the report when work on issue implies creating some news.
I mean an internal support project here.

To implement this feature I propose a patch redmine-1.2.1-redmine_link_board_and_news.patch.
This patch is based on the version 1.2.1.

This patch allows creating links to news and forums in the following format:
  • board#<board-id> and [<project-id>:]board:<board-name> - for the forum,
  • news#<news-id> and [<project-id>:]news:<news-name> - for the news.

Note that I'm a newbie in Redmine (have been using it just about one month) and in Ruby / Rails too.
The patch looks working for me, but it doesn't include unit-tests. Propose it as an RFC.
