Take a look at my profile page:

https://boardgamegeek.com/user/tabicat

I tried to insert some custom geek links, but they're not showing up as links. The web server is not parsing the [geekurl tags correctly.

I am using that prefix. So if I copy/paste the exact geekurl link here:

[geekurl=http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/tabicat?geekranks=%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09Board+Game+Rank%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09&objecttype=thing&own=1&ff=1&subtype=boardgame]games I have[/geekurl]

it doesn't work. I inserted that link with "Insert Geek Link" -> "Custom Link" and I filled in the form. So it works if I use [url but not if I use [geekurl, but that's what the drop-down list box uses.

Do NOT have http://boardgamegeek.com in a geekurl! Start with the slash after that.

Quote my previous post to see.

This will work:
[geekurl=/collection/user/tabicat?geekranks=%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09Board+Game+Rank%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09&objecttype=thing&own=1&ff=1&subtype=boardgame]games I have[/geekurl]

Sorry, I didn't read the "not" in your email.

The tip on the Add Custom Link box says

Quote:
For links to other parts of this site only.

To link to a a page like:
http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1/page/2
Enter /thread/1/page/2 as the link.
so, as a1bert says, you would not paste the whole link starting with http: in the geeklink box.

Hmmm... it looks like my last geekurl link is still broken. Maybe it's too long?

Edit: I removed the "column=" part and it works now.
