putting HTML in posts doesn't always work

Postby notasperfectasyou » Wed Apr 12, 2006 7:06 am

I have two links I tried to put in a post today and they don't work the post if titled:

Third Point: So what about this Antioxidant thing?

and it is in the Vitamin C forum: http://www.thisisms.com/modules.php?nam ... 4459#14459

I know the addresses are right because the do cut and paste to explorer just fine. can this be fixed? do I need to write the link differently? Thanks for checking, Ken/napay

fixed it... i think it's a bug in the forum software, quite frankly, but the two issues were that the URL's were too long and that there cannot be a space between the url= code and the link text. I edited the extraneous data out of the URLs and removed the spaces, and things work now.

Great posts, by the way :)

I really like this site and hope that I'm making a contribution. i do wish folks would reply with their own thoughts, I'm definitely wanting to improve the posts and put in more info. I don't want folks to just accept it without questioning it. ciao, napay

I've run into this problem before. I've used http://tinyurl.com in order to work around it.
