Maybe Joe Perez needs to clear a cookie or two to fix his wysiwyg diseases.

Here is a Washington Post article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...-tribal-elder/

In the third paragraph, beginning with "But for President Trump," there is a hotlink under "every opportunity" which, if clicked, leads the user to the original Twitter post. This is a convenient way for an author to cite sources.

Show me how to emulate that format. Where I have this whole paragraph:

But for President Trump, the dispute was not to be missed. It offered red meat to a president who has eagerly stoked the culture wars, while seizing every opportunity to discredit the news media.

reproduced in such a way that the hotlink exists.

When I respond to a PM in the quick reply box, it has defaulted text to being set to the center. It is far less annoying then everyone else's issues, but 100% more important for when I occasionally decide to read and respond to PM's.

highlight the text you want to hyperlink, click the hyperlink icon, paste the URL, and you're done.

That does not work when the link in question is to a Youtube or Twitter destination. Example:



But for President Trump, the dispute was not to be missed. It offered red meat to a president who has eagerly stoked the culture wars, while seizing
to discredit the news media.




The forum software realized that the link was to Twitter, so it embedded the tweet rather than just providing a hotlink. This started happening around the time IB took away the buttons at the top of the composer to manually insert the tags for YT, FBV, etc., and started doing it automatically.

So, if i type text before uploading the picture it will delete the text entered and then replace it with the image.

Please fix this.

So you want to be able to play a Trump card in order to have things like this not embed the tweet?

Close.

Try doing it so that it looks like this:



Where "every opportunity" is a hyperlink to the tweet.

I think we're on the same page now.

It's been like this for months.

But, seriously, I do appreciate that a lot of stuff did get fixed in the most recent update.

Having the same problem with text deleting as well. I just had bunch of text delete while making an update to my main build thread.

Hey Robb, could you please ask them to put down the crackpipe when they make changes?
