Hyperlinks in the "About" for my scores no longer work

• Jul 18, 2020 - 12:44

It seems that whatever parses text that looks like a hyperlink truncates the last character for my hyperlinks, which is a digit (i.e., the '3' of 'mp3'). I noticed that further down in one of my 'About' pages, I made a reference to a file (Musescore_General_HQ.sf3) which it attempted to turning into a hyperlink (and failed) and again, truncated the '3'.

BTW, when I did the copy and past of that string just now, it appeared thusly:


hope this helps. All these links worked before. I am using a MacBook Pro running Mojave, and viewing Musescore.com in Chrome, Version 84.0.4147.89 (Official Build) (64-bit),

Thank you, Marc.

Believe it or not, I went there, posted my little conundrum, and in the dialogue box to edit the text of the post found the clue to how to approach entering hyperlinks, using the:
[ u r l =
] [ / u r l ]
tags (without the spaces).
I shared my little discovery there.
Thanks again for replying.

I did post my problem there, and subsequently received this in an email a few days ago:

Anyway, figured out a workaround, but thought I'd post this just in case someone else finds him-or-herself in a similar situation.

Link-parsing on musescore.com has always been very unreliable. It breaks, they fix it, then it breaks again. I have complained again. Always put a space after a URL, for it often doesn't get close parens right (I know that's not your case).
