The current system is still way better than it was before, but I ran into a few problems while I was working on this post:
On reply 1 (Trip Report Days 1 & 2), when I try to add Keste, nothing happens.
On reply 2 (Trip Report Day 3), when I try to delete the duplicate links (Salumeria Rossi, Grom, Locanda Verde, Sushi Yasuda) nothing happens.
On reply 4 (Trip Report Day 5), Motorino, a restuarant that gets discussed quite a bit on the NYC board, doesn't appear to have a link, and I can't seem to free text one in.
Anyway, I'm really happy with the *possibility* of editing links after posting, but it'll be way better when it actually works :)
I posted a response yesterday where I carefully added 4 links. One of them associated with an in-paragraph mention of a restaurant and hyperlinked the name. Upon submitting the post, the links were gone. I edited the post to add links, and then after refreshing they showed up. Now today they are gone.
