Is this function disabled now? For the life of me, I can't seem to get it to work... ](*,)

What are you trying to do in the TR? Just enter a link to another site?

Here's the format: [url]http://www.mywebsite.com/mypage.html[/url]

EDIT: I found your TR, adjusted your link to fit the above format and it should now be working...

Definitely looks like a classic case of... DYBM!!!!!!!!!!

I liked your blank reports anyway, Rob, just to make you feel appreciated.

I was trying to embed my links so that they just showed up in the page, rather than taking to another link.
But, clearly I messed up something. I think I got it fixed... #-o

The thing that confused me (and why I posted blank TRs) was that the LINK icon on the TRs submissionpage came up like this:
[url=http://INSERT_URL_HERE]LINK[/url]

So, I inserted my http here, and also here.

And, that showed up blank. The barebones method that you mentioned above seems to work though.

Mine, too, Bill... words are gone, but the photo lineup is still intact at the bottom as are the comments.

Are you tinkering?

Help! My trip reports have disappeared and my entire internet livelihood is at stake.

In the meantime, I will continue to write negative yelp reviews until this matter is resolved. :-D

LOL. I hope it was the one with way too much pasty man flesh.

Me too though, at least one of my TRs is MIA.

There are literally dozens of people wandering around aimlessly right now at some trailhead, looking for routes and witty anecdotes, to find neither!

Stick to class I for now, people. It will get better.
