Is this a bug of some sort?

Okay, I post a simple short paragraph, but include a link in a sentence.  Such as <a href="https://rpol.net/display.cgi?gi=77706&ti=53&date=1719847499&msgpage=&show=all#27">Warfril's Grimoire</a>.  In the preview the link shows up blue just fine, but when I post the article, the link becomes shown in code and not a link.  Anyone else getting this?

Are you posting as a GM? I seem to recall that only GMs can embed links.

Secondary question, but are you owner-GM, or co-GM?

I have in the past had embedded links look fine to me, as co-GM, but look like spaghetti code to players reading the post (which was apparently WAI). Of course, that's probably not the same issue you're encountering, if it's looking like raw code to you viewing it as GM. I'm just trying to narrow down possibilities to try to reproduce the issue.

Finn and Elmona talk extensively on the trip to Falcarrah. He shares with her the contents of Warfril's Grimoire and the spells that he has learned so far. They include Armor, Color Spray, Detect Magic, Mount, and Continual Light.  They needed to choose among themselves which spells from the grimoire and the spell scrolls each would take and learn.

Strange.... i just copied the text fro. The post that does not show a blue link and put it here in a post. It worked here.

I am confused.

Would it be because I am posting "as" a players character snd not GM?

I'd bet that's the key, right there.

Edit: At least one time when I encountered the issue while posting as a co-GM, it was because I was trying to put the link into a post written as a One-Off writein character. I suspect that if you're posting as a player, you're having the same issue where the game says 'This isn't the GM, so code doesn't work like if the GM posted it.'
