Embed post returns another code in red

I’m new here and I need your help.

I tried to post an embed link. This:

and the result is:

written in red.

Can’t understand why.

Can you help me please?

Thank you in advance


I’d like to help but I can’t see the link or the result in your post!

Have a look at the tutorial on formatting text among the tutorials on the project website, which explains how to embed links into a post (which is what I assume you want to do).

Red text usually means a code snippet, which is done by placing a backtick (`) either side of the text.

Anyway, the tutorial should give you the information you need. Post back here if not.
I recommend also reading the whole ‘Getting started’ tutorials series, which should answer most of the questions you have about using Diaspora.

Welcome, by the way!
