Is anyone else having an issue with adding links in posts? Just had a player try to add one to a post and it would not display properly though she is using the proper coding for it. The links work in some threads, but not others. When posted in some threads it acts like the [ CODE ] tag has been used, but it hasn't.

What we're expecting:
If I Only Had The Words

What we're getting:
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQjb9IA2_Co">If I Only Had The Words</a>

rpol help:
The Anchor tag (<a>) is also available for limited use in public forums and by the GMs of games.

As a player, she can't use the anchor tag. She can put the link directly though.

Yeah, we finally figured it out. The issue was she is a GM but was posting under a character that does not have GM access rights.

Poking around at it out of curiosity, it seems to be tied to the Tags that are assigned.

If the tag for an individual/character is GM or NPC, anchor tags work. If it's anything else, it kicks it out as plain text (GM access or no).
