Inserting links

After I inserted a link (with the editors Link-feature) the link got 'extended' past the stuff I set it to. I don't really know how to put it into words properly (it's late here ^^)

Essentially, I just wanted 'Massdrop' to be the link, but after I kept typing, the link kept getting longer.

You select the text you want to make the hyperlink then click the hyperlink button.

Well yes, that's one way to do it, or you can use the 'link' feature of the editor, which opens a popup like this:

Which is what I used. I put 'Massdrop' as the link text and inserted it into my post, but the link kept getting longer after I then continued typing my post

Selecting the text is the easiest way to do it.

Doing it your way worked fine for me as well.

It usually works for me as well - just this time (and a few times before that) it didn't which is why I wanted to bring it up.

This is a known issue, but it's not something that we can fix. If you go onto a new line, it will stop linking, then you can backspace it and continue typing.
