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.

[div style="width:100%; height:1em; border-bottom:1px solid #aaaaaa;"]

If the problem is just trying to get the [div style="display:inline-block; background-color:#e6e6e6; padding:2px; border:1px solid #999999; border-radius:4px;"] link  button to put the proper code into your post, there are two ways to use it:
[ol][li]Type the text you want to make into a link in your post, highlight that text, hit the [div style="display:inline-block; background-color:#e6e6e6; padding:2px; border:1px solid #999999; border-radius:4px;"] link  button and enter the web address into the popup box. Done.[/li][li] Hit the [div style="display:inline-block; background-color:#e6e6e6; padding:2px; border:1px solid #999999; border-radius:4px;"] link  button, enter the address into the popup box, type the text you want to link in your post and hit the [div style="display:inline-block; background-color:#e6e6e6; padding:2px; border:1px solid #999999; border-radius:4px;"] /link  button to complete.[/li][/ol]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.)
