    When trying to post a hyperlink { I believe its called } I have the link right clicked and copy the shortcut from my Web Storage and the link looks perfectly fine when I place it into a GT post but when I go to Post or Preview the link is broken.

    Heres the example:
    http://www.urbaniadns.com:88/broncoglocker/pilot_announcement.avi



    Does anyone know why the link is broken when it is clearly NOT broken when I paste into message ??


    I hope that made sense . .. .

    The reason I ask is because the links always work fine when I email them to friends.


    Thanks,

    I'm confused as to what you're asking. Your link works fine for me.

    If you're talking about the "..." inserted into the middle of very long link addresses, it's just how GlockTalk's software displays these links. If you hover your cursor over the link, the complete, unbroken link address should show up in your browser's info bar. For some reason, the vBulletin software always shortens links so they will visually fit onto one line of text.
