    Thanks Kathy. The Colchicums are exquisite.

  2. Thanks for this post. I’ve been using WordPress for a long time, and never realised what the Post URL link did! I assumed it just linked to the URL of the current post, so I only ever used either File URL or None, depending upon what I wanted to do.
