Does this site have some type of blocker for posting links? I've tried to post links of products that can be helpful, but the links don't post correctly. It seems to shorten them, and they fail to lead one to the site.

Let's see...

 

Make some descriptive text in a message -> All Terrain Campers.

 

Find and COPY the browser URL from another browser window.

 

Highlight (click, hold & drag) the above descriptive text, click on the chain "Link" icon in the editor icon bar, PASTE the URL into the dialog window and then click OK.

 

Seems to work OK following those steps.

No blocker that I am aware of. My suspicion is it has something to do with your computer, or how you are copying the URL. Send me a PM with your phone number if you want to talk and see if we can resolve it.

Alley-Kat has described the process.

Highlight the text you want to be the hot link, then click on the link icon and paste in the URL.

Copy and paste is all I've ever done. I was going to add this one to my report.
