I'm curious also, but I've never been able to get links to ancestry. com to work either - they always go to the home page.
Hopefully Peter will read this and post the title for us.
Always looking for more reference material!
Valarie (and all): There is an ad-generator on this site which takes any reference to ancestry . com (without the spaces) and turns it into a link to a sponsored site.
The way to avoid this is to always use the hyperlink insert tool or enter the link in the same format and not use the name "Ancestry . com" in the link description.
Code: Select all
As a test, this link should work correctly:
See [url=http://www.ancestry.com]this [/url]article
and this one should fail:
See this [url=http://www.ancestry.com]ancestry.com[/url] article
See this ancestry.com article
PS: Simply pasting a link without the surrounding url brackets, like this:
will not work - the ad-generator hijacks the link.
