    Default New Active Hyperlinks in threads

    Any way to disable the active hyperlinks in the threads... Personally i find it distracting to have a bunch of Blue Underlined text in threads. If i want to learn more on say, John deere or a BX25, i think most here are smart enough to go to google or directly to TBN's review page and search.

    IMHO hyperlinks in text belong on Wikipedia... and even there they clutter up the UI. Not great to see from TBN who has a pretty decent web design (clean and uncluttered).

    I agree, they do not bother me at all and it is easier and faster to just click on the link vs googling it to find what the person was referring to.

    The problem isnt when a poster includes a link in his post to direct a reader to a specific place, like this TractorByNet.com | Compact Tractors | John Deere, kubota, New Holland

    The problem is the forum software AUTOMATICALLY putting links in when you type a specific keyword, like BX25 for example. This then links back to TBN's review page.. not that helpful really.

    OK, my misunderstanding. I guess that that has not happened to me, that I have ever noticed anyway.

    No worries It'll happen to you eventually

    Theres a current thread where a poster is trying to link to a youtube video of a Johndeere tractor.. The software takes the youtube link and splits it up... if you click on the "youtube" part you get the vid.. if you click on "Johndeere" (not a typo, trying to fool the software ) you get sent to the review page... very frustrating

    Heres the post http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/a...ml#post2373945
