    I can't get a clickable link in my bio. I've seen other accounts have it. Mine is a non live link. What am I missing?

    the links aren't live in the bio, you need to put your url into its appropriate place, the website field, if you want it to be clickable
    it doesn't seem separated like that when you look at an account, but under the profile settings, the bio and the website field are 2 separate things

    I don't think they'll allow some users to put a clicable link in their bio. That's going to be unfair towards other users

    Yea I seen what it was. It does put the website url BELOW the bio which makes it look like its in the bio. They are making a website and shorting it.

    You cannot put clickable URL in the bio. You can add an URL in the bio but it's not clickable.

    END.

    He is telling the truth. You just can't. You need to put it in the website box.

    The website appears below the bio making it look like it was apart of the bio is why.
