1. If they are part of a pasted article, they will activate inline. Otherwise, drag the link to the box

Works for me everytime.

5. Yes, that will definitely not fly well right now. Good luck on changing it.

I have no idea how it's done.

4. For a simple link, just paste the web address into your post.

The DU3 software should turn any web address starting with http:// into a link. For example, putting this text into a post...

http://www.google.com

... should automatically turn into this link...


To make a link out of custom text, use the link button (or type in the code). The following code in your message text...

[link:http://www.democraticunderground.com/index.php|Democratic Underground]

... should result in this link in your post...



There are some known problems with certain characters causing links to be incomplete or not work at all. See this thread for more info on the known issues.
