I was posting a reply to a thread, using the quick reply box and was entering html links but they totally didn't work.  Has something changed?

I will post a 2nd time in this thread to show you what happens then I try to put in a link.

lol, I think I see what's happening. People don't need to use HTML encoding on the links any-more. But if you still do use proper html links geekzone treats the links inside the html as normal text and double encodes the links.

If you want to enter a link in the quick reply box just enter the URL without the HREF tag... We will automatically convert to it. Read about it here:
