URL Copying And Pasting (Was "Search Is Over...." In NM)

Hi Greyfalcon,

Right, we see that, but what we marked and copied, which was the whole URL with the story open beneath it, did not appear when we pasted it in our post. Some software gremlin seems to be re-arranging it for us, twice yet, which it did not do when we marked, copied and pasted the Tiny URL. We don't get it. Computer (T)Error.

NN,

I honestly don't know what's going on there, C&B. I've always had success in simply highlighting the URL in the browser box, right clicking on it and selecting 'copy,' then using the URL speed button at the top of the message text box, and pasting my copied URL between the brackets.
Stoked to soak!

I've never used the URL button to paste a link.
I just copy [Ctrl-C] the whole address and paste it [Ctrl-V] into the message text. It always then appears as a link.

If life were supposed to be tough, why would there be hot springs?
