Since the group description states that posting help is a valid topic area for this forum, I'm using it to seek some. If it belongs elsewhere will someone on the moderating team please relocate it to the appropriate one.

TSF is the only forum where I can not paste in what I call-click through links. For example (and created manually): Microsoft Windows 10 Download Page

If I have a link such as the above in an MS-Word document, or even in another post on these forums, I cannot copy and paste it as a unit. If I copy, all I ever get is the text, then I must activate the link button in the composer, go back to the original and copy the actual hyperlink, then come back and paste that into the dialog box for adding a link.

Elsewhere (and I mean everywhere else) if I copy a link that uses click-through text I am able to paste it directly without doing anything else. The forums software here looks like what I'm used to seeing on several other venues, so I have to believe there's a way to make this happen on TSG.

If there is a setting in my own profile that I need to activate please let me know what that is. If it's something that needs to be tweaked with the forums compose window to allow this, would you please consider making that tweak?

Thanks.

Hi I am not sure if a non staff user has the ability to do canned replies as I do not remember back when I joined TSF but you can check in your User cp on left side of screen for edit canned replies. If you can have canned replies then add them then if topic comes up that a canned reply would work then you can click on canned reply pick one you want and it will put in reply box.

While I definitely appreciate that information, it's really not a "canned reply" function I'm looking for.

Being able, for instance, to copy a link from a web search, or from within a newspaper article, and paste it in its entirety in one fell swoop - click-through text and URL in one - is what I seek. Having to paste click through text, then go back and copy URL, open link dialog here, paste URL, and close is insanely complicated compared to the typical copy and paste.

Using our current vBulletin 3.8.8 it doesn't seem doable. VB code would be needed IMO.
