Pasting an Amazon link into a post results in a blank area. Editing the post shows that the link has been converted to a MEDIA string.

Do you have an example? If the link is to a video medium item, it will normally try to embed the medium in the post.

If you want to suppress the interpretation of inserted material, you may use the bbCodes [plain] and [/plain] to make it visible.

I'll see if I can recreate it here:



Well this time it displayed correctly on my Android tablet. My failure this morning was on a Windows PC using Chrome. Another member reported the same problem in the same thread.

The link reads MEDIA=amazon]id=B00DPLHS1U;tld=uk[/MEDIA if I edit out the opening and closing square brackets.
