    http://pub92.ezboard.com/fhomemadejetenginesandotherinterestingprojectsfrm9 is the link i am trying to post.

    GT automatically inserts a lesser than sign, and "br" then slash then greater than sign at the end. scroll your mouse over it to see the link in the bottom left of the window, or click it and see what it says as the address before the 404 page.

    br

    (i can't type it on one line, eric disabled that)

    Hello. The program is messing up the url, sure as hell. It is probably doing so because of the length of the url. You really should consider choosing a shorter account name for the site.

    I'm afraid the only suggestions I have to remedy this problem would be for you to choose a shorter account name, iwth the message board host, or to buy a domain name from Dotster or somebody and have it redirect to that message board. Sorry. Eric
