    Default URL character limitation

    Had a problem putting in a link for Google Places review - well over the 255 characters allowed for external link.

    I got around this by inserting html as follows:

    <a href="http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/place?hl=en&rlz=1R2ADRA_enGB442&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r _pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=1280&bih=821&wrapid=tlif13318 3486904610&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=barbers+in+cardiff&fb=1&gl=uk&hq=barbers&hnear =0x486e02d434ec53f5:0x143406db6586670e,Cardiff&cid =11313259335501300744&ei=_C9iT_T4HoLb8AOMyYy5CA&sa =X&oi=local_result&ct=placepage-link&resnum=3&ved=0CFEQ4gkwAg"

    then
    </a>

    It works fine with Mozilla Firefox which I usem BUT it does not work with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Opera (and probably others), andf the graphic for the link does not even appear in these browsers.

    PAge can be seen: http://www.libertybs.co.uk/lazarou/h...y_centre_.html
    How can I correct this? thanks

    Why not just go to some your Google Places review, cut and copy the link into a site like www.bit.ly and shorten? Then copy and past the shortened link where you want it . Just an idea.

    You can insert it as a block of external HTML. See this gotfusion tutorial for details: http://www.gotfusion.com/tutorials/tut.cfm?itemID=418
