Re: Could links in a post be auto-converted to REAL links automatically?

I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.6 and when I select bold text, italicized text, underlined or strikethrough text it ........Well it seems to be OK now.
What it was doing was that if I bolded a word, all the text I typed after that would be bold and I could not turn it off. I had to go back, select the text and un-bold it. The same with italicized, underline and strikethrough. I was sure it was doing it before but it seems to be working correctly for me now.

Re: Could links in a post be auto-converted to REAL links automatically?

Thanks Ray,
I know all that, but normally (that is: in most forums and most software like Word) highligting text and clicking the B button (while you type) changes just that highlighted text and puts in the <b> or [b] before that text and  </b> or [/b] after the highlighted text and you continue with normal text.
This being an On/Off switch on this forum is a bit confusing.
The URL-switch works different as well.
Guess you'll get used to it, but the above is not standard.

Having just joined the forum this morning, this option is not available to me as a new member. It maybe you have not got around to tweaking everything, in which case please ignore my comment.
