Unable to post links

Question

I can't post links by copy-pasting a url. Other users have mentioned this as well. The link button works for me.

I'm having no problems so long as I do ctrl-v it even auto parses videos such as

 

It's probably just a safety feature, I know OCN doesn't allow right-click copy paste so this is probably similar.

I can paste a url and it just shows up as text. I don't ever remember being able to enter a url and have it become a link without using the link button.

The link to youtube I posted above was just a ctrl-v job it autoparses now that we're on IPB.

I am unable to cut and paste in any form. I assume my past crimes are responsible for my current suffering, and that makes me a sad panda.

Have you tried selecting the text pressing ctrl-c and then clicking inside the reply field and saying ctrl-v ?

Yup. I pressed ctrl+c/v while saying cut, paste, and several expletives. I also find right clicking to indicate "paste" and the menu option for links to fail for me.

I've had this issue since the new sight went up. Other websites and programs all operate as expected with regard to cut and paste functions.

I have not had an issue, but will test once I get a chance.

I am still unable to "ctrl+v" to copy into my forum posts, if I "right-click" the menu option to paste is also "greyed-out" aand non-functional. When I attempt to use the link option from this forum's post menu I am unable to complete the function, I ultimately have to  use the back button to reload the page. I am also unable to successfully "quote" using the button provided on the forum.

It appears I am the only users suffering from this issue? Are my profile or other "back end" forum settings somehow unique, is it possible for an administrator/moderator to verify my forum account is setup correctly? If there is troubleshooting I could do on my end I would be happy to do so and report the results, perhaps that would help others as well (if I'm not completely unique in having this issue).

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

I have not, I am using Internet Explorer. Is there a STEP preferred alternative?

Look who can quote himself & cut & paste phazer11's motto: Knowledge is power, and power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. So study hard and be evil.

Thanks for the suggestion phazer11, I'm a Firefox kid now.

Literally, anything else not named Internet Explorer. Firefox, Opera, Chrome, you pick whatever you like.

Ahhh... ninja'd

Firefox or even Chrome. I don't know if IE is even supported on IPB.

Lol I got told I was being ninja'd during composing. Glad you found something.

      Every single time I want to log into these forums I have to reset my password. At first I thought that my goldfish-brain just couldn't remember it. But then I even wrote it down and I am now sure that I had to reset my password at least three times in the last two days, even though I am absolutely positive that I had my password correctly. I can't see anything that needs to be set to "trusted" in noScript (stepmodification.org is set to trusted).
      Does anyone know what could be the cause of this?
      Edit: I am on Firefox 90.0.2

      As the title says, the template needs to be fixed since this text is injected into other packs:

      Seems the Wiki decided to take Thanksgiving off :) Getting a 503 off of any page I attempt to go to.
