Yes, I just highlight the http in the box before pasting the link. You are most definitely not the first one to do this.

I just copy from the address header and paste into the text. I don't use that 'insert link' tool at all.

Looks like the bear in question was dining on seed & suet from a bird feeder.

I had to take our feeder down due to a troublesome bear who thought I had put the feeder out for him.

There are a lot of bears in the Silver Valley area, I came across a mother and two cubs mid-summer and have run into several while mountain biking.

Yep, bear scat.... An old joke.... If break it apart with a stick and it is mostly berries, it is likely a black bear. If you find bear bells and it smells like pepper (bear spray), it would likely be a grizzly.....

I''ve tried that before, but some URL's are awfully long. Once pasted, can they be renamed to something more concise like they can in MS Word?

I don't know and I'll never claim to know what I'm doing, but often the link appears renamed automatically.
Canadian dollar rises as markets stabilize - Business - CBC News

It was a lot of words and numbers, but as soon as I posted it, it became the link above. It was: tp://www.cbc.ca/news/business/canadian-dollar-rises-as-markets-stabilize-1.3214502

it was http://, but I stripped the 'ht' to prevent it from automatically becoming a link.

Same here - what you paste in replaces what was highlighted.

That's fine, as long as you want the link to display as whatever the web page was titled (often a reasonable choice), because that's what the forum software does for you automatically.

It was
Code:
http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/canadian-dollar-rises-as-markets-stabilize-1.321450
The forum software looks up the page title ("Canadian dollar rises as markets stabilize - Business - CBC News") and displays it.
To show something without it being interpreted as a command such as a link, use the Code block tool (looks like a number sign)

Thanks to all; I'll keep plugging away.
