Members posting links to newspaper websites

May I point out that links to some newspaper articles, e.g. Daily Telegraph, are blocked to non-subscribers after a few seconds, so are unreadable.

Maybe if MHF Members want to allow access to these articles they should copy/paste them into their posts?

It is possible I you are a subscriber to click on the"share" icon and provide such articles for non subscribers I believe.

Missing an "f" Geoff. Just trying to help. No need to cut n paste. I(f) you are a subscriber and come across a piece that you wish to draw to the attention of others. Look to the top right of the article and there will be an icon that says "share" click and share. Hope it helps

I think you may have misunderstood what was being described, as far as I can see no-one was talking about sharing MHF gems of wisdom anywhere, but what Geoff was talking abut is the way that some people post links to newspaper sites whih require you to be a subscriber of that newspaper site.

If a non-member tries to access the information displayed on that site using the posted link it is not available as the newspapers only allow access to paid subscribers.

BUT there may be a way to share such newspaper sites using a "Share" option that exists.

It might be good if MHF WAS available to non-subscribers for a while to encourage others to log on, register, and then participate, at present they are only allowed limited access and a maximum of 5 posts AFAIK so many people seem to register, post a question, read the answers and then disappear having had their problem sorted by those loyal to the site who pay for that privilege.......

That suggestion has been made MANY times but there has been no response from VS and indeed, one member was answered in a manner that suggested they had totally misunderstood what was being suggested......

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I read it that if you were not a MHF subscriber the link to an article was not available to you.
