      Let’s see if I can explain this well enough to actually help:

      When writing a blog here at Fab40, I might have several links I want to embed behind actual text, so that when someone reading the blog clicks on the text, they are hyperlinking to the website address provided.

      My method: I type the text; I select the little chain icon at the top of the box; I enter the website address.

      If I’m entering the main page of the website address, like [Link Removed] then I usually have no issues with the link working.

      However, if I am entering a specific page within the website, like [Link Removed] the Fab40 embedding functionality adds another backslash ( / ) at the end of the website address, making it:

      [Link Removed]

      Nine times out of ten, that will “break” the link and when it is clicked, it will result in a “page cannot be displayed” message instead of going to the website.

      I know this because when I go back in and remove that final backslash, then the link works fine.

      Again, this in only when embedding the link “behind” text.  

      Is this something I am doing wrong, or a glitch in the functionality?
