No worries. I’m not terribly bothered by it. When I saw someone else was having the same issue I thought I’d speak up just to say hey it’s not an isolated event. Although I admit it makes it difficult to catch up on the threads I don’t really mind doing it the hard way (when I find the time) because I’m enjoying them so much
Still, the whole point of the links was for ease of access, so if they’re not doing their job, I want to fix them, or at least provide a working alternative for anyone else having the issue, since it does seem to work for others.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any answers–most of the android stuff I could find was more about how to open links in any app, or how to add links to your mobile tumblr.
Tumblr doesn’t seem to have a different mobile redirect (like m.teaandcrowns.tumblr.com etc) like some sites have, so I can’t even add a second link tailored specifically for mobile users.
Sorry I couldn’t come up with a better answer! I wonder if it’s something with my theme, or a random broken… redirect…, or even if it’s more to do with the android version of the app? From your screenshot, it looked as if the links I have in my description (and the formatting) weren’t working properly, either.
The best thing I can suggest so you don’t have to go digging through our tags is to copy the link (because it’s the direct link embedded in the text) and copy (or select it to open) into a browser outside the mobile app.
I wish I could have fixed it for you and @painting-serenity and anyone else having issues.
