interesting that the link preview/change only seems to impact new posts...vs old posts with links in them.

It seems to be how the new software uses a different URL tag

Code:
New: [URL unfurl="true"]https://tugbbs.com/forums/threads/woodstone-at-messanutten.299139/[/URL]
Old: [URL]https://tugbbs.com/forums/index.php?threads/questions-koolina-2-bdm-mountain-view-penthouse.230207/#post-1783677[/URL]
It seems that the "unfurl=true" is what provides the preview. However, I tried to replicate that with the Hyperlink button and it doesn't seem to work for me.

Example using Hyperlink button;

Well, I can't even replicate the preview. Above tag has the "unfurl=true" and no preview.

Okay, below is by copying the link from the Share button on a post, above is just copy and pasting a link from the browser address bar in to a new post.

I feel that this website gives the consumer two (2) sides of the story of purchasing a timeshare resort and timeshare owner ship. One the consumer can purchase
directly from a developer and secondly, a consumer can purchase a timeshare from a timeshare owner and saved eighty (80) to ninety-five (95) percent from the developer cost.

Plus, this website is about actually timeshare owners sharing information and their experiences the good, the bad and awesome vacations experiences with their families and friends.

Plus, this information, suggestion, and advice is free.

Stayed at a DRI resort in Hawaii and did the sampler package. Rescinded and saved that cost. I believe around $4000.

Also staying in a HGVC resort in Orlando and attended a presentation. Did a 1600 point package with 3200 bonus points. Is about $8500. This happened on Tuesday. I'll be sending a letter today as we have 10 days. We actually felt better about that one, but after fully diving more into the resale possibilities and the overall numbers, buying developer just doesn't make sense. And 1600 points just seem useless overall. Especially with Hilton since the direct buy perks don't seem to be that strong vs resale.

It's very difficult to assess what he has gotten himself into. The details so far are incomplete and hence incoherent. He seems to be distracted by the single/married minutia like a drowning man clutching at straws. Let's hope he can get his mind into focus and do the needful. I hope he doesn't mess up the rescission letter. Perhaps he should hare it for your review before he mails it.

We helped her rescind the $60.5k Wyndham contract. Thank goodness we reviewed the rescission letter. Obviously, she also still has the $60.6k contract that she put a $11.3k down payment on. Her option is to dispute via credit cards and/or default. We did the best we could to help her help herself. But at some point, there needs to be some self-help.
