belMarduk: That was when tsuwm had a line break in his url for "fresh as" and it didnt work as a URL Link, just text that was split by a line break. Hes fixed it now.




yes, but I'm still puzzled as to the root of the problem -- the url was all on one line; only the subsequent text wrapped. not only that, but the link worked just fine in the preview window, which is where I always check links.

Hmm, I think no matter what, it has to be all in one line within the brackets.

I don't think so, since we likely use different screen sizes/resolutions.

that being said, I don't know why that link would have chosen to break...

The way I saw it, it was broken in the middle of the screen, at the end, and considering I have a 1280x1024 res, I saw it as a break. Its happened to me alot of times, so I know how sometimes these things like to break for no reason. Most likely either hit enter by accident or BB code just thought it should break, maybe cause there were spaces in it and it wants _. I don't know but anyways its fixed.

I agree with all that's been (and will be) said about the mysteries of string theory, as related to URLs. but I *still* want an explanation for why the link worked in the preview window, and then not!

-ron (non) obvious

a test

the problem seems to be the " " in the url. they break the code.

but I guess that still doesn't answer the question, does it?
