    Don’t post links like this:

    http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom

    Post links like this:

    <a href = "http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom"> http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom</a>

    It takes an extra 4 seconds but it doesn’t block other people’s posts.

    (Go Here to test it out)

    I just want to make sure that I understand – are we supposed to copy the link two times – once within the quote marks and then again outside of the quote marks?

    Did it! It actually worked on the first try! Thanks, Mod 25 πŸ™‚

    Actually I have the same question. I only did it once. I thought that maybe the second URL was just establishing what not to do.

    I did it twice. So I guess it works if you do it once, LB? Good to know.

    Mods, have one of you been manually adding an icon to thread titles?

    Joseph, I managed to figure it out, so it can’t be too hard.

    I think the new system does it automatically. Pretty cool huh?

    yeah, right. And it knows what Yom HaAtzmaut, etc. are.

    LB – it seems that we do have to do it twice. When I did it once, it didn’t work.

    “blocking the post below yours”

    What does that mean? Causing the page to render improperly so that the following post is not visible?

    yes.

    It’s simpler to just put <em> tags around the URLs.
