I’ve noticed that a lots of people want to share a webpage and they do it like this:
Then along and I come and I want to see the page and I have to copy and paste it into my browser window. 🙁 I am lazy and this makes me sad.
If you want to make it a clickable like to make lazy people like me happy you have to:
1. Paste in your webaddress like so: https://www.google.com/
2. Highlight the address
3. Click on the chain symbol (two left from the upload picture symbol)
4. In the top up window, paste your address into the Link URL box. Then click on the Insert button.
5. Give yourself a pat on the back because you’ve made a clickable like like this one: https://www.google.com/

@AnotherMrsBrown: We’ve had this lesson before, but thanks anyhow.
I will just wait for WeddingBee to get this fixed. Why should I do seven extra clicks of the mouse when other sites allow you to copy and paste links? and WeddingBee used to? Theoretically they are working on this.
The broswer I use allows me just to right click and open in a new window.

It bothers me too. Especially in the dress/ring threads. Look at this thing I like, what do you think? Three lines of non-link. Either post a picture or a proper link.

The worst part is that, as @julies1949: said, WB used to hyperlink links automatically when you were on a regular computer. And now it doesn’t! Soooo annoying.
But I agree with you. Sometimes I can’t even be bothered to copy and paste a link from someone’s post so I just skip it altogether.

There are a lot of addons you can use to highlight and right click the link to open in a new tab or new window. Much easier.
