When you click on the red button (), there are no visible hyperlinks.

One can, of course, still send a PM to one's favorite moderator.

BikeForum posts seem to be unique that if one simply uploads the URL, then for the most part they'll be posted with just the URL, and the title is retrieved later. There seem to be a few exceptions so posting links to subforums, I think don't retrieve the subforum titles and leave it as a URL.

I've noted in the past, that "HTTP" automatically retrieves page titles, but "HTTPS" does not (with the exception of BikeForum threads, but not BikeForum subforum links).

Oh, @IBobi & @IBJoel, feel free to delete my post above as issues are resolved. I was experimenting some.

I.E. No Chinese? in the post body, but it is OK in the title. And, at least with internal BikeForum hyperlinks.
