In particular, these 2 threads had issues with links until I added the links myself. Before then they weren't clickable.

Just the normal way. Just wrote "link" and then used the "insert link" button to insert the link. If that's what you did and it still wouldn't link, that's why I asked you to post here. Even if you just post the link, it should still link up to the site.

No, I just copied and pasted, but will try your way and see if it works.

Hi,
The reason why your links weren't working is because you had color codes next to the url
specifically COLOR=#555555 in [ ]. That was interfering with the url coding.
When posting a something with color tags it's probably best to use our color code system, by clicking the area at the top.
If you were copy and pasting from another site, it took the color codes on their page, hence the issue.
If it happens again, remove the [ COLOR=#555555 ] in front of the url and the [ /color ] at the end of the url or any fonts. Or you can use the hyperlink like Autumn mentioned above.
Hope that helps. Smilie

I did move the color words though so not sure why or what to do then.

Where do you write link exactly, can you write the steps?

Not move, you need to remove them completely. You can't have all that color and font tags for a URL.

BTW, which view are you using? The old/classic view, or the newer "redesign" view? ( may be a bug in the redesign view )

Hi Angellique,

In your edits they aren't showing you removed them. You need to completely remove anything in the [ ] and [/] because whatever site you are copy these from is using a font/color code that we do not support. So if their site has say a link in blue and you copy that, you are going to keep running into this issue.
See the attached picture above. Smilie

You are very welcome. I would maybe copy and paste it to a note pad first, and then it may not contain the coding. Then copy it from there and paste here. May help, not sure though. hehe

I posted this http://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-...104011_f_1 and it shows me no color or brackets to erase. What would I erase here to get this one to work?
