So... I just found URL tags not working for me in social groups. I can post links here in main forums but not in groups, why

Quoting this for the sake of emphasis.

A really nice thought.

I'd like to add my voice in saying please, for the love of god add this info to the FAQ.

I lost my old account password and could only find this alternate account that I apparently never used. Banged my head against this issue for 30 minutes before happening to Google the right keywords to find this thread.

I've only just found this also, after spending hours trying to get my signature to have usable tidy links in it. Thought I was going mad or something.

Ah, thanks for this thread. Explains a lot. It should be stickied.

Now time to mingle around with the community.
