Description of problem:

Klicking on one of the two URLs in this thread links to the iNat-user’s ‘URL’ observation page. The URLs itself are working and I cannot replicate this issue when copy+pasting the comments into another observation

The text in the body of the comment is mis-formatted. I think probably we’d have to ask the user how they entered the URL while they were composing the comment to figure out what went wrong. It’s possible they made a mistake while entering the URL.

Might be hyperlinked. Like this: URL

I can replicate this consistently. It seems to happen if you use the “Add a link” tool on the toolbar when you’re writing a comment, then put the URL where you should put the text, and put nothing where you should put the URL (leaving it as “(url)” which is how the “Add a link” tool inserts it).

I marked this solved since it’s not a bug, but rather a mistake by the commenter.
