I can’t make any attachment with the <a> without the system regarding it as spam. Is anyone else having this problem?

Not all links, but many. And worst of all: links referring to forum posts themselves are considered spam!

That’s very strange because it has never happened to me.

Hmm… In a ‘xxxtermbrowser’ it works, in Chromium and Firefox it doesn’t. Other experiences with other browsers?

Have you tried using the square brackets and no “a”? [ url = ] [ / url ]? That’s what the system spits out if you use it under “Post Reply”.

What’s interesting is that I’ve tried linking a URL to a title and been reject.
then if I simply past that URL it’s often (but not always) accepted.

I’ve found that adding a sentence after the link often gets me past the spam filter, but you’d think the forum software would be a bit more lenient with people who have been around three or four years and have several thousand posts.
