I tried copying BMMECNYC's link URL from his orignal post and ran into the same issue. After experimenting a bit I discovered if I pasted the URL directly into another browser address field and copied that URL, I could then paste it back into the my post (with the aforementioned url prefix and suffix) and it worked. For whatever reason, copying and pasting the URL from the body of another post doesn't seem to work.
I wish this nagging issue would get addressed but I don't think it's a high priority with Kalmbach.

This has been an ongoing issue since a couple of software upgrades ago. Here's the workaround:
Place a bracketed "url" (minus the quotes) on the front end of the link and a bracketed "/url" (minus the quotes) on the backside of the link. It will then become clickable like the following:
The baffling thing is that the old way of creating links still works when you use it in a PM. For whatever reason it just doesn't work when posting it here in a thread.
