I am trying to link to another recipe in the footnotes of a recipe I am writing. THe editor keeps not displaying the link when I preview the recipe. Any ideas on how to force the issue?

I have also had that problem for some time. IT used to let me but I'm not sure if it's another random problem or if it was changed. I can't put a link anywhere in a recipe, including the description, footnotes. I think I ended up forcing one by using "at" and/or "dot" instead of @ and a period.

Thanks! You gave me an idea and it worked! Just remove the part of the hyperlink that says http and the colon thingy as well as the 2 backslashes and replace with a www and then everyone knows it's to be a link. Thanks so much!
