Little Tip

Very long run-on URLs or words or series of punctuation marks -- like "????????????????????????" -- blow the margins on the side, where your comments are listed.

If you have a URL to post, try doing it in actual hotlink form. If you don't know how to do that, break your URL into small pieces -- three of them should be enough, unless it's an outrageously long one-- and then just tell people to put them all together in a new window.

And try to keep from posting overly long words/uninterupted series of characters. It just blows the margins and makes the site act goofy.

Thanks.

Bonus: If you don't know anything about putting URLs into a link, this site, tinyurl.com, will do it for you.

Just post your URL in their box and hit the button and it will spit out easy, short HTML code you can cut and paste into the comments box.

Just tinyurl.com. Easy to remember.

And the cool thing is you'll be able to post an actual link that people can just click on to access. And furthermore -- the Mu.nu spam-blocker will not block the URL's address out!

Thanks to Blovis, although DDG has mentioned this solution before too.

Also... That "link" button above the posting window provides the link-code for ya. An anonymous poster says it's pretty easy:

Here's how you do it:

1. Type link or some other short word or phrase. 2. Highlight it. 3. Click the LINK button above the comments box. 4. Paste the url in the box. 5. You're done.

The "short word or phrase" he mentions is the actual text that will be displayed rather than the link. Easy ones are "click here," "here," or "this article," etc. Those will be the words that actually show up -- in red, hotlinked, click-to-access letters -- rather than the long URL.
