    There was a comma immediately following the url and it was being included when the url was rendered as a link.

    I looked at the stupid link and couldn't see anything wrong with it. Thanks for fixing it.

    To clarify, I mentioned to Ken that we should use the domain I own, BoxTurtleForum.com
    I am not affiliated with the Google Group/Forum linked above.

    Ken, we also need to figure out why your signature posts twice with each reply you make...

    We've got that figured out, Josh. He has the 'show signature' option enabled on his phone plus it is enabled on the Forum. So when he posts from his phone it includes the signature, then when he hit's "post reply" the Forum includes a signature.

    Oh good, because I don't like the format on Google or Yahoo. I much prefer this Forum's format.

    Great - that's an easy fix. Ken, can you disable your signature on your phone, please?
