No links in posts?

If I try and post a hyperlink I get an error stating “Sorry, you can’t include links in your posts.”? Is that expected?


Yes, until you’ve made a few posts you don’t get that right to keep out the one shot spammers.

Yep Graham is correct. Google “Discourse trust levels” for more info. Once you are TL2 you should be fine to post links.
TL1 allows posting images and creating topics. Once at TL3 you get some moderator type rights also.
