Hi,

When using the rich text input for creating discussion posts creating a link is accomplished by typing the text you want to use for the link, highlighting it with the mouse or keyboard, then clicking the "link" button in the formatting bar. The link button is not active until you have text selected.

This isn't the most intuitive thing, so I'll add it to our list of things to take a look at.

Hope that helps!

Matt.
