Response to RainDog (Reply #20)

21. There are some issues with links and the [link] tag.

The main problem seems to be the inability of the DU3 software to handle certain characters in the web address and/or text portion correctly - that and it acting a little differently than it did on DU2 (e.g. here you should include the http:// part, there you were supposed to omit it).

I posted a thread about the issues that I know about here.

If you give me an example like this (with a space in the web address so it shows up as text)...

URL = http ://www.democraticunderground.com/
text = DU3's Home Page

... I'll see if I can determine what the issue might be - and get it to look like this: DU3's Home Page.


If the problem is just trying to get the
 link 
button to put the proper code into your post, there are two ways to use it:
  1. Type the text you want to make into a link in your post, highlight that text, hit the
     link 
    button and enter the web address into the popup box. Done.
  2. Hit the
     link 
    button, enter the address into the popup box, type the text you want to link in your post and hit the
     /link 
    button to complete.
Either method should result in code like this:

[link:http://www.example.com|custom text]

(Of course you can always just type the code in instead of using the buttons, that's what I usually do.)
