HTML shortcut buttons are nonfunctional February 13, 2003 3:01 PM   Subscribe

Since yesterday, I've been unable to use the shortcut to post links in threads. The shortcut window pops up as usual, I paste in the URL, and hit OK. Then the window closes, but without having inserted any code into the text. (I'm using the same ol' IE5 as usual.)

I had the same problem too, but have been doing all sorts of work on my computer so I thought it was me. I found that highlighting the link text, then using the shortcut and entering the link works. I dunno why though.

Same here. I've been hand coding links, but really, that sucks. I click on the link button, paste my link, hit okay ... nothin'.

(Windows 98se, IE 5.5)

Can I throw in a ME TOO? IE 6.0 on a new e-cheapo PC. Any chance his mathowieness will even see this,after it's fallen off the MeTa front page days ago?

Consider the previous comment an "I Dare You".

Consider these multiple comments a pitiful cry for attention.

Shit. add [/a] to the end of that:


[a href=""]text that is underlined as link[/a]

replacing all [ or ] with < or> respectively.
