I'm counting six "bloggered" links. Backup links are the best workaround. A triple click selects them.

Are you guys using Chrome or Safari?

Peter Pan said...

I'm using Firefox. My backup browser is Pale Moon.

Tom Hickey said...

The links are OK when I post them. Blogger changes them later, no idea why.

Tom Hickey said...

There is no site manager. Blogger is automated and has a simple entry form for links, images, and videos. Nothing about adding anything to the URL. Blogger converts all that to HTML automatically.

Tom Hickey said...

I have put links in with the full URL and tested them. Later they don't work. I fix them again and test them and later they are changed again. This happens as I gather links before I post the page. I've posted the page and then checked the links in another browser and they work. Later, they don't. Mystery indeed.

I will try (target="…)

BTW, this never happen before they "upgraded" Blogger.

Peter Pan said...

The issue hasn't been fixed, therefore it's not a bug, it's a feature.

Links work fine.
