Edit: Okay, what the hell did I do wrong with the lj user link thing? Clearly today is just a day of utter fail for me. *sulks*

*Hands over choccie*

Are you using rich text or HTML? I use the former so I can highlight the name and use the icon in the toolbar. I never remember the html, despite Munchkin sending me an idiot's guide *g*.

I use rich text. I just went straight for typing the code rather than the highlighting and using the toolbar, as every time I've tried to do it that way, especially if there is an lj cut somewhere in the post, it screws the formatting and for some reason the lj username appears at the bottom of the age underneath everything else, regardless of where it was originally placed on the page.

Grrr. Today was just a bit crap at work (this entire week, to be honest), so I'm just annoyed by lj playing up as well as everything else.

Grr for crap week!

I notice that does happen sometimes in LJ. I highlight the user name before doing the cut. And sometimes you have to click in the text, click again, clear the highlight and then try to type whatever it was. Bloody faff!

I don't think the code applies to the rich text editor, as it doesn't use HTML. I suppose you could always type the majority of the post in the Rich Text editor, and then switch to the HTML editor for the usernames to attempt to stop any problems - I've done that on occasion (last night, for example!)

Hmmm, might try that, it sounds like that's what i was doing wrong. I was annoyed and tired last night so couldn't be bothered faffing with it once I realised it hadn't worked.
