Edit a link in my post, please? Can't Post

Could someone edit - or rather, add - a link in my latest post? The post is here http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=961581#961581
and the missing link should be in the last poem section:

"Why should not Pohyola prosper?
There the Sampo [link] grinds unceasing,

Instead of that [link] I was going to put the actual link Blush - this one: http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=861347#861347
so that the word "Sampo" in the link. But I was too hasty and caught it too late.

And one more thing: please replace ### with the word 'forged'.

Many thanks in advance!

I think I've got those edits right. [In reply to] Can't Post

Would you mind checking them?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Thank you! One little thing though... [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you Ataahua. Smile I have one little request still, if I may - I don't know f I should ask you or dernwyn as you both edited the post (we are lucky at TORn to have swift and helpful moderators! Heart) - but I'll ask you because you replied first:
At the moment the link in the word 'Sampo' leads to the beginning of thread number 4. There are many posts about Midsummer etc. in between, before the actual Sampo post that I hoped to have the link for. Maybe I copied the shortcut wrong in my earlier post. Unsure

When you have the time, could you maybe edit the link so that it leads directly to the post titled "Forging of the Sampo, the Magical Mill - Horn of Plenty"? This should be the link to the post:
http://newboards.theonering.net/forum/gforum/perl/gforum.cgi?post=861347#861347

Thank you very much again, and I'm sorry for the trouble!

*going to double-check my links*

Thank you dernwyn! [In reply to] Can't Post

It was midnight here when I posted yesterday so I did not have time see you & Ataahua's replies until today. Thank you for tidying up my post! Heart

I have one little thing I hope could be edited still, but already asked Ataahua about it... Smile

Hmm... [In reply to] Can't Post

When I click on "Sampo", I go to the "Forging of the Sampo, the Magical Mill" post.

Are you still going to the other post when you click on it?

Yes, but it's OK [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know how it's possible that the same link could lead to different places, but yes, I still get the first post of thread 4. I did close the browser (the computer too, overnight) and try again, but it's still the same.

But never mind that. It's the right thread after all, and while it's technically weird that this can happen it's no big deal. Smile Thank you very much for help, both of you!

Are you getting the correct link now? [In reply to] Can't Post

When I look at the link in edit mode, it goes to post #861347 ("Forging of the Sampo..."), not to #859631 ("The Kalevala...(Part 4)").

I just "re-edited" it, can you let me know where it goes now?

No, but I honestly don't mind :) [In reply to] Can't Post

It's always and forever the first post of thread 4, it seems, at least for me. The one that goes #859631 ("The Kalevala...(Part 4)"). But I really don't mind and am just happy that those ugly '###' (left over from my post draft) are replaced with a proper word, and that the link leads to the right thread.

If anyone wants to solve the link mystery for solution's sake, you are of course welcome to do so and I can keep refreshing the page & testing the link.
But as far as I'm concerned I'm content with the post as it's now, and happy with the corrections you and Ataahua made to it. Thank you! SmileSmileSmile

That's making me batty. [In reply to] Can't Post

So I re-edited it to point to the first post in thread #4, checked that it went there, then edited it back again to point to the Sampo post, checked and saw that it went to that post instead.

So when I look at it, it's definitely going to the Sampo post!

I may have to consult with my superiors about this mystery (at least, for my own peace of mind)!

I wonder if... [In reply to] Can't Post

The original linked-to image is just cached on Ilmatar's computer? Clearing the cache might clear up the mystery.

Silverlode

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Apologies for causing battiness :D [In reply to] Can't Post

To be precise, the link - in my case - does not lead directly to the first post (like this shortcut [hopefully!] does), but to the very beginning of the thread/webpage, like the cropped screenshot below:



But yes, it still goes there. If you decide to consult with your superiors I would be interested in hearing any explanation, but I hope you obtain peace of mind in any case. I have. Tongue

No, that's not it... [In reply to] Can't Post

...Because I have checked the site & links with my smartphone as well, and it's the same unexplainable phenomenon over there... Cool It may remain a mystery.
