    This is the first forum I've ever seen where a post from 2001 is followed by posts from 2010, 2009 and then 2001 again. My account settings is set to display "oldest first", which I assume means ordered by date as well, not shuffled. Is this a bug?

    You need to select the text first, and with the text selected, add the link.

    Thanks, Ted, that did it.

    Looks like the loose ends are getting nailed down quickly. Man, it's great having all of this support!

    I'm still blown away by the speed. Amazing.

    I'm afraid that's not available. Doing as I told you will provide the same end result.

    Change your editor, as advised by satrow a few posts ago.

    I don't have an edit button for some of my posts. In this thread it's ones from a few days ago. I'll check on other threads and see if it's consistent.

    cheers, Paul
