Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

I tried to post a comment containing a URL and Bold Text in the RenderFarm chat room and it didn't work:

enter image description here

However, I then tried to recreate the URL markdown problem using the exact same link, and also one with the same bold text, but they worked just fine.

All markdown is disabled on multi-line posts. Make sure your post doesn't contain newlines.

Specifically, judging by the screenshot, there is a newline between check... and the smiley.
