    BBM Channels has been released for legacy and BB10 users.
    As we see more and more members willing to place a link to their Channel or interesting ones, let's see how they can offer a hyperlink to allow a "tap and browse" experience for BlackBerry users (with Channels installed).

    Note : To create a link to a Channel, you obviously need its ID. You can get it while in the channel via context menu (3 dots) / "view Channel profile" then tap on the bottom icon "Show Barcode".

    The methods below are intended for both signature and contents, but they differ if you want to do it within your browser or CB10 app.

    A. Within the browser

    1. Type the label of your link and select it
    2. Click on the hyperlink icon

    3. The link box will pop. What you have to do then is to replace the "http://" protocol string with "bbmc:" (omit the quotes). Depending on the (version of the) navigator/OS you use or your settings, the popup may vary in two ways.

      [Guide] How to link to BBM Channels in CB forums-tuto2.png In this case, you have to change the protocol to "<other>" and type the URL matching the following syntax =>

      bbmc:[Channel ID]
      [Guide] How to link to BBM Channels in CB forums-tuto3.png In this case, all you have to do is to type the URL matching the following syntax =>

      bbmc:[Channel ID]

      What you'll get before publishing :

    That's it !

    B. In CB10 app
    In CB10, you don't have access to formatting boxes (as of date).
    So you have to type the full instruction in order to have a working link.

    Note : Remember that if you want to display signature when posting via CB10, you have to set it: swipe down then tap Settings gear and fill in "Signature in Forums" field.

    The instruction syntax is (sorry, I had to make an image to avoid formatting in CB10 app) :

    Sample with both body link and signature link :

    ! And now, let's discover all the Channels of yours !

    Kudos to members Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes, SirJess and Ambassador JayDee for their help while experimenting and writing this guide.

    And how do I join a channel if I only have the PIN? I can't find this option anywhere...

    Edit: nevermind, search seems to work. The PIN I had was incorrect.

    BBM Channels on iOS/Android/BB10 has got a comment auto-delete bug going on these days. Post a comment, it appears, step back and the comment disappears from where you saw it. Happens like 3 out of 10 times. Also the 4 letter F word seems to get auto deleted on a few channels without even stepping back.
