    I am trying to post a news article and I am having trouble doing so.

    I have tried to post the URL of the article but when I try to preview my post I cannot open the URL.

    Is there something new that I must be doing to post this article?

    I'm sure you know that to make a link clickable that it must have the URL tags added.

    During the preview, are you trying to follow the link in the text box or in the Post Preview area?

    I tried to follow it in the Post Preview area?

    I do that to make sure it looks right.

    Thanks guys for your help.

    I re-tried doing the post again in Scuttlebutt under "An Awww Moment" and some how it worked.

    Have no idea what I did right.

    Posted it two different ways and it worked both ways.

    I think you can past a link directly into a post and it should work: http://espn.go.com/

    Or you can use the link icon: and give your link some outlandish name

    Finally you can make a bookmark (*) to get: ESPN: The Worldwide Leader In Sports

    PS I've been adding bold and underline to my links manually since The Lounge doesn't do it. I can hardly SEE the light blue non-underlined version.
