  • putting hyperlinks into post

    Do I need to do anything special to make the links I put in posts appear as hyperlinks rather than text, or does that happen automatically?

    Just copy and paste the whole URL (including the leading http or https). It works for me

      I posted a message earlier here https://www.britmovie.co.uk/forum/ma...an-s-tale-1987
      & the hyperlink isn't working. What have I done wrong?

        That looks like a hyperlink to me

        oh, or do you mean the one that that URL is pointing to?

        You put URL tags around the URL on the page about The Handmaid's Tale. It's odd, sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't. We don't know why that is yet. But I always add a URL without any URL tags and that always seems to make a hyperlink

          OK - The Handmaid's Tale was just an anomaly then - not the idiot pressing the buttons!

            Well we don't know why some work & some don't so we can't really say what (or who) is to blame
