Is it just me or are urls not shortening when people post them? I keep seeing urls that are so long it stretches the page and shrinks the text. It doesnít seam to happen anywhere else. It might be my issue.

No that happens on BITOG I've had it happen on some of my post here and they won't come up. Are the ones your talking about coming up?

That's why it's best if people use the "link" button when creating a post. That way, at least one can control the length with some of the absurdly long URLs we sometimes find.

A lot of forums I have been on will automatically shorten it even if you donít use the link button.

I think the only "automatic" URL shortening here is when wwilson notices a mess. wink
