Links in comment replies not working? Answered

New embedded links in comments or replies do not take you to the link when you click on them. Nothing happens when you click on the orange text.

I think this probably affects new comments/replies since the last site update.  You can create the link in the editor, it turns blue and then when you preview the comment it is the familiar orange text.  Links in older comments seem to work.

Using Chrome/Windows XP
and I guess we can no longer embed videos in comments...I see what you did there.

Hi there,Sorry about having to report a glitch.When I log in to comment, it takes me back to comments OK! but as soon as I type something, I'm taken back to the log in page again? I use win 7 and the latest beta Firefox OS. Is there a way to fix this? regards,Redrooster

That sometimes happens when you have an old cookie from the last time you logged in, or having a browser add-on that stops the page from loading completely. You can try

Disabling any script blocking add-ons to your browser, like Ad-Block, GreaseMonkey, or LastPass
Making sure you have cookies enabled for your browser
Clearing your browser's cache

After, refresh Instructables.com and try logging in again.

Seems like a bunch of issues this weekend. Someone has to kick Robot when the staff gets back to the office Monday California time whenever.
