    Hey all,

    I mentioned screwfix in a recent post

    (http://www.diynot.com/diy/threads/shed-made-on-the-cheap-with-pallets.466896/)

    When I looked at the post without being logged in, the word screwfix was treated as a hyperlink which takes you to the screwfix website. Why is that? I didn't specify it to be a hyperlink.
    When I'm logged in to diynot, the text does not show as a hyperlink.

    What's going on? Do screwfix sponser this website?
    I don't mind if that's the case, I just didn't want to accused of a plugging businesses!

    You are correct, links are created to certain brands when they are mentioned in threads and these links are omitted currently for registered members logged in. So fear not, you won't be accused of plugging :D
