Normally, any URLs pasted into posts here get "automatically parsed" so that the page titled is displayed as as hyperlink. For some reason, this doesn't work with much of Apple's website, specifically their discussion boards and support section. Is this something that the site admins can look into? Being an Apple-oriented support community, it's natural to frequently direct users to Apple's own resources, and having a proper page title would help make it clear what the link leads to. Examples:

https://discussions.apple.com/welcome (this is the main page for their own forums)
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7123671 (a random thread from their boards)
https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1820?locale=en_US (a support article containing a link to a combo update)

Hmmmm...

(Ignore me for a minute - I'm testing things).

Mac Forum & Discussions on Apple Products and Services (http://www.mac-forums.com)
www.google.com
CBC News - Latest Canada, World, Entertainment and Business News (http://www.cbcnews.ca)

Tried a few sites - works for some, not for others.


It would appear that this is the function of a plugin, nothing that I or chscag can administer (only those with access to the "super administration" functionality can). I'll pass it up the chain. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

This has been going on for a while--especially the works for some not for others aspect. I blew it off to something that specific sites were doing but perhaps it is some kind of plug in issue.
