Help with links

I use to be able to copy and paste a URL address and it was live or clickable. In other words,all you had to do it click on it and it carried you to the web address.. Now,it's not live or clickable,it's just the address and has to be copied and pasted into the address bar to reach the website. I haven't changed any settings or anything,it just started on it's on. It doesn't matter which browser I use,Google or Firefox and I have Windows 10. Anybody have any input with this issue?

Thanks

I just right click on the address I want to link, and then click copy on the pull down. Then I right click on the thread line I want to place the link and click paste on the pull down.

The link you posted is live & clickable,mine is not. I know how to copy and paste,been doing it for ever but as I said,when I copy and paste, the address but is not clickable. If I posted a link,I have to copy and paste it into the address window where I use to do is just click on it.

Still get invalid thread when I click on the ones you shared Mike. But I can click on the one in your signature just fine, go figure.

Whenever I add a link I use the link icon in the Quick Reply window.



I have also experienced the link carrying over to text I continue to type. To avoid this I usually add the link after typing my post. Maybe there was an update to site software recently...
