Paul Davies - Why can't you post URLs? It was possible before, several of us have posted URLs to the tips board already. If you mean they are automatically hyper-linked, well there are always good reasons for that. For example it would turn these boards into a free advertising space for every Genealogical related business going (not a few of which are cons). Secondly many search engines rank pages based on how many other sites carry links to those pages, therefore the boards would be prey to URL spamming by those trying to push their own sites up in the search engine ratings.
