Pay attention Bond...


When you post a link it asks you at the bottom of the editor screen (a black box) asking if you want to embed the link or display as a link only, the latter being the option you want to select for what you're trying to post.  


Like so...

Click 'Display as Link Instead' and it will display like so...

Not all web page links will give you the option, so try pasting from the BBC website for instance and it will automatically display as a plain link, whereas Youtube for instance it will automatically embed but will give you the option as above to display as link.  Our website acts like Youtube.

I've never looked at any of that "Q" stuff M. What I've been doing is copying the browser line and pasting that as a link. This is the "foolproof" way to ensure the correct link address. 


That worked for "Tyre Wear" but not for my old "N0 tyres" thread. Why would the first correctly show as a link to that thread, yet the 2nd doesn't?
