If Links are Not Allowed in Posts Why is There a Linking Option?

11 replies
I just had a post rejected for having a link to the website that I was asking about. This has me wondering why? Why am I given the option of including a link with this post if links are not allowed? If Warrior Forum does not want links why not just program the form not to include the option program the pages not the parse links?

    because links are allowed, if they are non affiliated and on topic. You CANT self promote here, unless you pay to have a signature where you may then share a link.

    Links are only allowed for referential purposes, and as mentioned by savidge4 these should be non-affiliated and on topic. Otherwise, posts are automatically deleted or maybe even marked as spam.

    Because your first post linking to your site was deleted? Always good to read the rules and read a few threads to get a 'feel' for a new forum when you first join.

    The link was referential since the post was about SEO issues with the site. So, what should I just post a thread about the issue and hope nobody asks what site I am talking about?

      Yeah, with your user name and the URL underneath it, that's going to be a toughie.
