Directions to a web page are more useful to all if taken all the way to the target page, but on two occasions now my select>copy>page>paste routine has failed with the click address truncated, and followed by an indigestible string. Could the length be too long for autoclick? If so, is there a simple test?
Useful info Jester2k, thanks. But is there a test to see if this forum's s/w can handle my link-string? In practice I don't see the click here until I've posted,-then it's too late to correct, and I may have to "Oops" and re-do. Might it be a good idea to always use huggy71's TinyURL ? My long link-strings I suspect contained info from my cookies and perhaps register. TinyURL says it cuts out "affiliate links". If that works I wonder why PCA software in the forum doesn't do that as routine, or is it unreliable?
i usually only use tinyurl or shorterlink if the address fills up the entire length my address bar or more,or if im posting a link from deep within a website.you can use them all the time if you so wish they will make short links even shorter still.as Jester2K says they are also handy for MSkb links.
to test the short link and see if it works i just open another window and paste into the address bar and click go.
