Included URL links not showing in color or underlined?

Does anyone else have the problem of a URL link that was included in a post not showing in a different color or not even underlined? I have IE set to always underline and tried different colors, but the color does not show until the mouse is hovering....

I put a link to this forum using "underline". The color and line shows when composing the message, but as soon as it is posted I can no longer see the distinction. It even shows as blue in the preview but does not seem to maintain that after posting.

Hi Saltgrass,
at present we cannot denote urls or links using a different colour. This is down to the version of software being used to build the forum and as it's very new we are still waiting for the relevant updates to become available. It was tried with some success (to change link colour) but then we discovered it was affecting other areas of the forum and so was easier to keep to one colour for now.
