I attempted to add a place link to a post. The place did not exist in the chow database yet
so I clicked the link that showed up under "other results by name and location".
The right thing seemed to happen, the little green icon appeared and said a link would
be added to my post. I clicked the "post my reply" button and the reply posted without
Since it's still impossible to add a link by editing a post, in order to try again I replied to
the place-less post. Again, I did a search and again the place was not already in the
"chow places" list but was available in the "other results" section. I clicked the appropriate
one, got the green icon, and clicked "post my reply". This time it worked.
The post and reply are here:
