    Am I the only one having trouble posting url links with my threads? I get a warning message saying it cannot post because it contains a url link. Yet I find other users posting with links to articles. How do I get a web url on my thread??

    Thanks!

    I suspect you may need to go above a certain number of post count in-order to include hyperlinks and images in your posts. This is usually implemented on boards to discourage commercial spammers and spambots.

    Seeing that I only have 2 postings, I can see that being the reason.

    You could try typing the address in instead of pasting a link.

    Thanks Dan. Tried that, but forum software strips them out.
    Maybe now that I've got some runs on the board, ... ?

    Almost! Now I can add web links, but when I try to upload (small) jpegs, the uploader seems to upload, then delete them?

    Guess I need a few more runs...

    Unsure... that's what makes it exciting

    No hurry. So many good threads to explore, thoughts to rethink...
