Problem inserting links

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

whenever I want to insert a link like

https ://community.hpe.com/t5/System-Administration/How-to-change-a-card-instance-number-in-HP-unix/m-p/3787731#M264402

after posting the repliy it is showing as

 

/t5/System-Administration/How-to-change-a-card-instance-number-in-HP-unix/m-p/3787731#M264402

 

(note: there is an added spcae between https and the URL, that makes the URL invalid, but I can post it)


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

> [...] insert a link [...]

   Apparently the folks in charge think that this behavior is a feature,
and that having to use the "Insert/edit link" gizmo, instead of simply
pasting the URL text, is a benefit.

Hmm, what a feature ... !

 

Even if the link itself and the shown text is identical in the compose window, it is no longer in the posted text - the domain is missing then.

A real killer feature.


Hope this helps!

Yes, I've seen your mutilated posts, you now have to go back and edit them all to fix them.  🙂

Steven and I have already discussed it a month ago here:

http://community.hpe.com/t5/General-Feedback-and-Suggestions/URL-mutilation/m-p/6895581

The solution is to just use "http:".

 

I guess it's time to send mail to the forum admins?

>I'm not sure what is going on with these URLs or why..

 

As I mentioned with the announcement with https:, it only happens with those.  http: works fine.

So either it was always there with https, or two changes were made at the same time.
