The markup code for a link seems to no longer work. Not a big deal, but restoring the capability would be nice. Some of us like to style our posts.

Testing, testing . . .

Here’s my website Dave Miller Gaming for the games I created, and some other stuff.

Seems to work for me.

I can only imagine that a minor typographical error confused things.

link= test
url= test

Indeed that one works, but I was referencing a URL that resolved all the way to a page name and file extension, which did not work.

The link I couldn’t get to work is on a post I made earlier today. Given that Mike closed the thread and issued a warning to all posters, I’m not going to reference it here. If you can find it, you will see the general URL form that didn’t work for me.

I'm pretty sure I found the post and link you're talking about.

The link worked for me - taking me to the NY Daily News article you referenced.

Did it NOT WORK, or not take you to the article you wanted? I mean, maybe there's pay-wall issues with the Daly News.

Problem solved; the site Help section for formatting codes specifies “link” rather than “url” in the markup syntax. Thanks for taking a look. Mea culpa for blindly following the documentation.

I believe that url= and link= work identically, although the closure tag has to match the opening tag.

I know I prefer to use url=, because it's shorter.

Anyway, glad you're sorted out.

The preview for using link formatting markup renders as an ugly mess in message preview whether using “link” or “url” on an iPhone. However, the actual post is fine. That seems to apply to only the original message preview. A preview while editing the post presents a strange but usable presentation. What fun! Perhaps this is WebKit related.

I had almost forgotten that the ancient layout style ever existed.

Working for me on Chrome.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
