    Posting Problems

    Whenever I put a link in a post, with standard URL tags:

    [url=http://www.online-literature.com/swift/947/]A Modest Proposal[/url]

    My post takes forever to go up or even fails. This happens regardless of the website I'm linking to, I just always have to retry posting it 10-20x or just cut out the link.

    That's weird. I don't have that problem, so I don't think it's an LF issue.

    I just tried to post that exact link, copy and paste into quick-reply (and later "Go Advanced") and it failed each time. But this current post will go through immediately since its devoid of a link. I wonder if anyone else has the problem, maybe people who are not mods/admins? I never have this problem on any other forum.

    My computer won't even let me load that page. Apparently, there's a "detectable threat" there.

    What's up with that?

    Not sure, I get "detectable threat" alerts so often that its meaningless, and almost always inaccurate. I just tried it with Yahoo and it still fails:

    [url=http://www.yahoo.com/]Yahoo[/url]

    ^^^That loaded in four seconds. I cut it directly out of the address bar, without the URL tags. Can you give that a shot and see if it works?

    Without URL tags it works, with URL tags it gets stuck in the loading page until eventually I am redirected to a blank page and nothing is posted.

    I think there is just a problem with using [url= tags. Can you try posting with a URL= tag?

    That took a little longer, about 9 seconds.

    Mine looked like that in the Reply window with the exception that the second part of the string also included the www. and the .com.

    How are you getting that format? Aren't you clicking the link in the Reply box, the one that looks like a planet Earth with a link icon?
