Whatever I had almost right before, I've messed it all up now. I can't seem to code correctly to create a link back to my own entry at the bottom of comments. I don't know if I've let myself get too frustrated, but it's not working. 

Thanks and sorry for the whiny tone to my note.

What is the actual link you're trying to use? the one you posted doesn't seem to have a working domain -- http://www.thesinkofinvisibleink.com/ doesn't seem to exist.

[ URL="https://domain.com/path/page.html"]My text to display[/URL] should work. (Famous words of every programmer) Remove the space after the "[".

I am not sure why the URL itself isn't working, though.

PM me your desired location for your link and I'll send you back the working code.

It's baffling sometimes because it looks easy. And yet--the software is like the betrayal of a trusted friend at times.

I give. No space after or   copy and pasted url from address bar. Totally baffled. I hope the score doesn't have anything to do with contest placement. According to entry it doesn't. Have two great comments. Thanks so much for trying to help. I know. Whiner.

You should use a link shortener. I think the max length is exceeded here.

Try this: [ URL=https://bit.ly/2y9W0It]The Sink of Invisible Ink[/URL]

Remove the space after the first bracket
