For some reason, all replies get automatically hotlinked. But the original post does not.

FR will not automatically format a link in the main story or the original comment by the poster.

If you want a hot link without doing the “href” thing, you can hit the “exerpt” button and it will provide a hotlink to the url from the story.

Or you can post the story, then immediately reply to your own post. When you paste a url, it will hotlink.

You can always do the html thing in the first post. But I forget the formula.

I like doing it the way I did versus the HTML “click here” or “link” so folks can see what they are linking to versus the surprise they weren’t expecting that some play here.

Ya’ll stay safe and thanks for the tips !
