Change to embedded links   Technical Issues /Bugs

It’s happening again, this time in Classic forums.  I tried to post a link in the middle of several paragraphs of text.  It’s not embedded, I tried to post a live link. Every time I tried entering the link, it jumped to the top of the page and posted there. I finally had to go into the source code to place the link where I wanted it.

It stopped doing that and now the problem returned?

I'm having problems inserting links as well on android, it doesn't recognize there is a link saved from sites unless I first paste it into another editor, then copy from there.

No the first problem hasn’t resolved and now there is a second one.  I will test each now.

I wrote the text first in the previous post, then added the embedded article which appears at the top. Then added the link at the end where it appears. In a classic forum, article links appear at the top, but apparently not in Zeta.

Copy the raw HTML code before you hit the post button and compare it to the raw HTML code after you've posted it by editing the message and then going into <Source> mode.

You should see several differences. 

I would presume it's something in the original HTML that the Delphi processor either rejects or converts to something else that might be the cause.

FWIW

Testing

The original link 

https://www.wikihow.com/Exercise

The embed code

<div class="df-embeddable" data-url="https://www.wikihow.com/Exercise">
<div class="df-embedded df-link">
<div class="df-head"><a href="https://www.wikihow.com" target="_blank"><img border="0" class="df-favicon" data-color="#8DB070" height="16" src="https://www.wikihow.com/favicon.ico" width="16" />wikiHow</a></div>

<div class="df-body">
<div class="media"><a class="pull-left" href="https://www.wikihow.com/Exercise" target="_blank"><img class="media-object" src="https://www.wikihow.com/images/6/60/Exercise-Step-2-Version-2.jpg" /></a>

<div class="media-body">
<h4 class="media-heading"><a href="https://www.wikihow.com/Exercise" target="_blank">How to Exercise</a></h4>

<p class="df-desc">Exercise is a key part of staying healthy, but figuring out how to get more active can be tough. If you&#39;re not used to physical activity, start slow. Go for 10 to 15 minute walks, and work your way up to briskly walking or jogging for 30...</p>

This is my exact copy and paste of your HTML:

Comparing your original to my posted copy of your original, it looks like Delphi editor has broken up and re-ordered several [<div class=] tags which seems to be the problem.

How do we bypass the div tags?
