I have tried everything to no avail to cut/paste a link to an article into the body of the post, and I have tried the "link" option in the tool bar and all it does is freeze up the page unless I refresh it, then it all happens again. Is there a special trick to cut/paste text and links into the post body? I cannot cut/paste anything at all.

 

TIA

I copied text in first line and link in second. No magic. Oh, are you using a phone?

I am on a desktop PC and no matter what I do, I cannot cut / paste anything, link or text into the post body. I have tried all of the little tools at the top of the post body and I get nothing. I can go to another page, copy the text of another post and try to paste it into my text body for my post and it does nothing. Have no idea what the problem is.

I got this when I just right clicked and copied the link from the NANFA website.  When I paste it in it does not look like it will be a hot link, just looks like text.  But I think when I hit "Post" it will convert to a link.  What are you getting if you copy and paste a link like that... anything on the screen at all?

 

Edit: it did.

I tried to copy and paste the link you posted and nothing appears at all. The same thing happens if I were to copy and paste what you just posted in my post, it would remain blank. After I've copied the link, when I go to right-click and the box pops up with paste in it, it'll let me paste, but nothing is copied and pasted. No text, nothing.

well, that's got me stumped... sounds like maybe a setting on your browser or something?

Wait a minute... how did you do this?

 

There's a list of darters found in Pennsylvania at:

 

https://www.fishandboat.com

 

Look up Pennsylvania's dynamic darters. It's a PDF and most of the way down is a complete list of their  darters, names and protected status. There's 21 species, two of which have been extirpated and no longer exist in that region. We have most of the same species.

I had to go in and hand type in the link. I couldn't cut and paste. The link to the article I WANT to past is like 30 words long with letters and junk in between. All I had to type in for this was https://www.fishandboat.com .
