    I have a problem. I would've just PMed someone, but didn't know who. The problem is whenever I try to attatch a link, I go back to check if it works, and all that comes up is the BOC page saying they have moved. Does that just show up on my end, or am I doin it wrong. If I have my desired link minimized, is there something that I can just click on to attatch it without typing the address in? Again, sorry I am illiterate. Any help would be rewarded with reps, and coins, and many thanks.

    When you get the message, it might be that you've timed out on the posting page. That happens to me occasionally.

    To get the link from your minimized page. Expand that page and then put your cursor on the address bar in the browser of that page and right click on it. That will highlight it. Then left click and select copy. Go back to your post and then click the link button at the top of the post editor. A window will come up and you can paste the link address there. You may have to first erase the "http" that is already there before you paste.

    Hope I explained that right and that it helps.

    Have you tried the ctrl+c command?

    If you don't know what I mean:

    Press and hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard. While holding it, press C to copy and V to paste.

    Open the page that you are trying to link to. In the address bar, hilight (select) the entire URL (including the http:// ) and do a Ctrl+C. Then, when you want to enter the link in your post, press Ctrl+V and it should appear there.

    If you have any questions, just PM me.
