Have you put the tinyurl icon onto your browser's toolbar, which is where it should be. To use tinyurl you should highlight the URL and then click on the tinurl icon - then choose 'From current URL' then Close the small window that opens. You can then click on Edit and Paste and your URL will appear as a click-here in your Post.

See my screen-shot ...

can you confirm that after typing in the tinyurl address you then pressed enter (on keyboard) or clicked on the green triangle (in firefox) or the green arrow (in Internet Explorer)

Slight amendment to my previous response - you do not need to click on Edit before Pasting the tinyurl into this Message box - just make sure the cursor is flashing in the box and that is where the Click-here will appear when posted.
