URL problem in Trip Report

Postby apasquel » Thu Jan 05, 2012 6:59 am

Hy guys, I submitted the BUffalo River report...I put the URL in the trip report and then highlighted and clicked the URL command as intructed. When I activate, the trip report shows the URL highlighted and you can click on it. However, when you do click on it...it doesn't lead you to my website. It says there is a connection problem. Am I doing something wrong?

Since your URL doesn't have "www" in it, the trip report page can't determine if it's a valid link, so you must enter the URL tags in the trip report source.

Enter it like this in your trip report source:

[url=http://seekingtheburningbush.blogspot.com/]My Web Page[/url]

Had one for years. More of a Larry Bird look than Schneider
