When you are trying to link to an outside page, the software converts the URL as below to the page title with a link, and it will not UNLINK so the address is plain text.

I posted the link to the page scientific hoaxes through the years

It took this www.themediadesk.com/newfiles6/piltdown.htm and converted it because it keyed on the http prefix, and I had to take the scenic route around to get it to display the address and not the title.

I'm probably the only one that gives a damn, but I like to have both hot links and the full URL in stuff.

This is the way the software looks at links and resolves them, it is also a security feature so members will not just click on any link they see and they now have an idea what they clicking on.

Very good, sir.

I'll use the 'workaround' to do it with both.

No problem.

Just an annoying part of the learning the way the new place works.


Oh, yeah, the coffeepot tripped the GFCI.
