How to add a photo AND a link to your discussion

You can add both to a discussion - and have both of them show - but there's a slight 'trick' involved with it. (Hopefully Bugsy will iron this out eventually.) Most times, if you add a photo and a link to a discussion, you only get the photo and people have to copy/paste the link to follow it. However, to make both of them function correctly, try doing it in two steps. First, make your discussion and add the photo to it, and post it. Next, edit the discussion and add the link at the bottom. Then refresh the page, and you will have both the photo and a working link. (This helpful tip brought to you by that guy that is always bringing you things...and I don't mean the butler)

I spoke to Bugsy about it, it's going on the 'fix it' list

I've successfully used this trick once or twice, but I include the link first and then add the picture via the edit.
