    I'm afraid I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not sure why I'm having trouble with links...

    Viewing most left by others and now just recently trying to post a couple of my own?

    When they're surrounded by and they just won't work for me.

    I have noticed when someone posts with the quote option that then the very same link in the quote "bubble" does work???

    Any advise?

    In your quote "bubble" what I had written as " and " shows up as "and" blue, underlined and italic...

    IIRC, the board software is set up to a 30 day/30 post minimum status as newbie to weed out spammers and such.
    While your registration date obviously puts you way back of that Mr B, I think the 30 posts minimum requirement is still restricting hyper-links.

    That sure makes sense about posting,

    But does that also effect viewing?

    Wow 30 here?

    Maybe I should start posting my sentences one word at a time. :)
