Everything is clickable for me, if it’s not then you figure it out by copying text in google search. and a few browsers does allow ‘‘Copy Link From Text’’ ‘‘Copy Link Address’’ as well.

Problem is I have added a few bbcode to manage them as in list, that’s why those bbcodes blocking clicking on a bunch of link text. If I get free time then I will re-write them without bbcodes as in plain link they won’t be clickable then, Because of most resources release Thumbnail and it shall increase thread’s height from current height that may bother you to scroll down and thread’s may also become worst instead of eye pleasing.

I think this is enough for you all to understand.


Good Collection Sam
