I posted a question and when I saved it and looked at the post there was all these words that are now blue and have links attached to them, I didn't put those there, how did they get there?

Yeah I see them too. A little annoying but I got used to it. If you are on a PC dont accidently hover over them or the add pops up.

Default Forums Bad Ideas about Media links

The two check box options under the compose screen in this forum are:

Automatically parse links in text
Automatically embed media (requires automatic parsing of links in text to be on).

You can uncheck them but they (the forum) ignore them and it will still check them after you save and post or will put these stupid things back in.
It P O 's me so much I might have to quit the sight. I hate people that force things on their users.
