Problem formatting hyperlinks

Topics: ASP.NET 2.0

I am having a formatting issue that I can not fix. When I have a blog entry that has hyperlink text, after I insert the link to the text, several extra spaces are being added that can’t be removed. All these extra spaces make the text look grammatically incorrect. A colleague of mine is having the same issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How do you insert link in the text? If you use web admin (TinyMCE editor) then delete text that does not look right, type it in, highlight and click link button in the toolbar. Then enter link address in the pop-up.

Thanks Rutr, unfortunately that did not work. Check out the link to the blog entry I am having problems with.

I know how to fix it but I dont know why it is doing it! I had the same problem and just started troubleshooting character by character. Try putting https instead of http and see if that fixes your problem. It fixes mine every single time. Now. What do you do if you don't need the "s?" Why is it doing this at all? Can anyone answer that one?

And it doesn't matter how I create the hyperlink.. html view, pop up box, in notepad and copy paste, typing it in.. doesn't matter.. it puts the space in there every time unless I add an "s"

Not 100% sure but look into your theme's style.css where you can find following (just search for http)

div.post .text a[href^="http:"] {
	background: url(../../pics/remote.gif) right top no-repeat;
	padding-right: 10px;
  white-space: nowrap;
}

Removing the padding-right might fix your problem.

Commenting out the right padding worked perfectly. Thank you!
