Forum posting problem

    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.

        I retract that! It's changed again.

          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?

          Silly..

              Well, whatever it was has been fixed. Both bracket and non-bracket now work again.

                Yes.  I just tested that and both work.

                Then again, lets try a Writer Fox one...

      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.

    And the brackets aren't working anymore either.

    Doesn't work with Writer Fox hub(s)!

    "The BBCode syntax in the message is incorrect. Quote tag missing end bracket."

      Weird.

      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...?

        Possible, I guess, but shouldn't you and I be able to do it?

      So that worked.. the one of his I tried did not.  Maybe it's just that hub?

    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. big_smile

          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.

              OK - I give up...........how do you send an e-mail to HP?  I thought this forum, "Report a Problem" was the place.  Anyone have the right e-mail address?
