I have tried to post a message with several links to books in it (offering multiple wishlist books together) but can't seem to get the links/message boards to cooperate.    I have tried several ways with no luck, then finally got it to work - but the posting got cut off once posted to the board.  What am I missing?  Any suggestions or  step-by-step help would be appreciated.

Diane, here's a link to a previous thread on creating links in forum posts.  Don't know if this will help with all of the problems though ("...but the posting got cut off once posted to the board.").

Sometimes the formatting gets all wonky when copying links. Try highlighting all of your post and then using the little blue eraser for "Remove Format that is in the formatting menu for the text box. It is the second one on the second line right before the Styles section in my list.

Thank you!  I'll have to try again.

Thanks for that format eraser tip, Melanie!  I had no idea that was there, so whenever formatting went crazy on me I'd erase everything and start over.  Now I won't have to, yay!
