When you post links to a website in your posts, they don't appear as a hyper link and I don't think what appears to be a hyperlink feature in the action bar works. I've tried clicking on it to use my sources but it doesn't work. Members have to copy and paste on links, it would be much easier if you were able to just click on the link and the page opening in a new tab without doing to whole copy and paste.

Good point!

To put a link you need to use the hyperlink function in the text box.

Example:

www.google.com


Would be much easier if the links were hyperlinks automatically. :)

Yeah, it would be but I've tried using the hyperlink button in the action tab and it doesn't work.

The "Add Link" icon is not working. So I always have to copy and paste the useful link that I want to put in my comment.  


I think it would be better if the URL posted should automatically take you to the page where you want to quickly browse on something.


Or am I just missing this point? But I did the whole exercise and yet to no avail.

 


Thanks.

So you type some text, highlight it, select the add link button, and paste your URL like I did below, but it doesn't work?


A useful link for language learners.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

This is in work; should be fixed in a day or two.
