:roll: The main thing Del is that you're posting the URL anyway - no worries whether it runs off the word or the actual link (the link will work without any forum code at all so all you need to do is the c/p anyway :wink: ).

There's a sample code that comes up automatically when you hover over the URL button too! :D
