Ahhh, much better. Good enough for now.
The issue I had making a post can be repeated doing this:
Select the link shortcut button
Input a URL and Title
Checked the box for “Open page in new window”
Hit Add Link button
Submit the post.
The post registered on my screen but when I went to the forum home the post had not committed. I had to create a new post and paste the link for my website into edit window without the link button to get the post to take. Happy hunting.
