Links

When I try to post a link to another website the site software automatically replaces the address with a description of the site. This description is often much longer than the address and makes simple post very long winded and untidy.

Re: Links

I understand I can edit the text in the link but I feel this 'upgrade' has made a simple system very long-winded.

i prefer info on the link, for instance sometimes you dont know what a link is about until you go to the page, where as a discription will tell you where you are going, a must if you are using the internet at work, could be a bad link if you click it b4 AO delete it

Re: Links

But it doesn't always work.

We had an instance yesterday of an ebay itembeing posted and the software posted the full html of the auction.

Doesn't seem to be doing it now, so it must have been fixed?
