In notepad the coding will stay as you type it and I will be able to copy it.

Jim (jimmaclachlan) | 6324 comments Joy, just go to the home page of the group & copy the address. It's:

I don't know how you got it in there but there is an HTML break & space at the end of the link you tried to use. You need to remove
 < br  > from the end of the last one. there's a % 20 also at the end of the first one. The link should end with

The / at the end is optional.
