I consider myself a bit technically challenged. My issue just recently has been that I can no longer copy and paste a complete link to the forum. Tried to post a link to an Inkbird Thermometer from Amazon to a member whom was questioning recommendations. I can click on specific item so it is in header, click copy, go to forum and try to paste and all that pastes is the amazon.com. Not the product. I can paste it to an email and copy it off of that and paste but PITA doing it that way.
Use Kindle Fire when on here most times. Phone allows me to copy/paste.
Not sure if I explained this very well but any ideas would be appreciated.

This was copy/paste your link after pulling it up. I have to hold header until it highlights, then copy.
For some reason the site for particular product is the only thing that will paste.

With Kindle, don't have Ctrl tabs

Oh sure it worked this time, wouldn't you know

Edit: no it did not pull up the product, just the site.

Well-At least I know what you are talking about. I tried to put http: link in an email and it doesn't work either sometimes. I copy the http: and paste on word pad then copy from there to paste. (does that make sense>)

That's the only way I can do it, just thought there may be an easy fix that I am overlooking, because that is a pain in the butt. Frustrating when trying to show or help someone find something.
