I'm trying to post to the "Extreme makeover" forum and tried to include a link to my hub. When I hit the "submit", I get this message:
The BBCode syntax in the message is incorrect. Quote tag missing end bracket.
What is this? Sorry, I'm not a coder and have no idea what this means.
Forget the bracket stuff. We don't need it any more. Just paste you hub url and it will work fine.
It has? That's silly..
Oh, well. THAT ought to make a mess of that forum section.. newbies looking for help needing to figure out how to do that url= business?
Well, whatever it was has been fixed. Both bracket and non-bracket now work again.
Did you actually try to post html code?
All you need to post is the URL. You can cut and paste it right from the address bar of your browser.
The forum software will turn it into a link.
Doesn't work with Writer Fox hub(s)!
"The BBCode syntax in the message is incorrect. Quote tag missing end bracket."
Writer Fox? You need to write to HP. There is something odd about your URL's. They LOOK normal, but something is tripping syntax checks.
In the meantime, explain your issue in the Extreme Makeover and just give the hub title for now. People can find it.
Maybe 13 day newbie restriction issue...?
Interesting. His older hub worked. But his latest one flat out doesn't.
I wonder if the word "quotes" is tripping up a very dumb syntax checker?
That thought crossed my mind as well.
Still trying and the link won't post. The name of the Hub is: Quotes About the Internet. Maybe it is the word "quotes" like one of you suggested.
Can anyone else post the link or does it just not work for me?
It did not work for me either. Apparently, HP takes a dim view of quotes hubs. From what I've seen/read, yours is not the first.

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much more than the link to the person's Hub.Surely the forums are places to discuss...

Hello Everyone:I have seen several (NOT ALL) of our High-Scoring Authors here Publish a Hub and then Post a Thread in the Forum on the Same Topic. This probably, gives them more traffic. How far is this correct ?

Perhaps to strike a balance between what one portion of HP users want and the rest of us...maybe we could start up a "Newcomer Thread - Q&A" that has equal staying power to some of our popular word games. There won't be an official decision to parse up exactly which content goes...
