Just today Links Pasted into Comments are not working. The text is highlighted blue color and you can Click on the text but nothing happens. Anyone experiencing this problem?

It worked fine for me with a test I just did. I’m using a Windows 10 laptop with Google Chrome.

Thanks for update
@Kiron Bondale Board Links (Ctrl + k) added to an Object work fine… the problem are Board Links Pasted into Comment Bubbles that don’t work for me as well as other Team Members.
My Link is within the Board…
I’m a PC User
@Robert Johnson I’ve confirmed that Comment Links outside of the Board work.
BTW using the Desktop App. Later today when I open Miro in my Browser I will Test there.
Update… before Clicking the Link I pressed Keyboard Key “Ctrl” and the Link worked.
Yep. This is buggy.
Miro support: When I try to link to an object on the board by using Copy link, and then pasting that link into a Comment, the link doesn’t work - every time I click on the link, it just goes into edit mode for the comment.
As Brandon said, if I press Ctrl first and then click on the link, it works. Or, if I short the URL down to just the board link (ending in “=/”), the link works.
I am using Windows 11, the latest 64-but Miro app (0.7.6).
The same behaviour happens in Chrome.
Update: Middle Mouse Click does a better job opening the Link for now… sometimes Ctrl will cause the Edit Model to be enabled.
The weirdness continues. Thanks for sharing!
When you removed the parameter the weird behavior stopped, but did you verify that the link works without the parameter?
I’m considering this a Bug
@Henrik Ståhl I’ve used Miro since the days of Realtimeboard, I think 5 years of daily usage. I’ve Pasted Board Links in Comments 1000’s of times before and they worked fine. Both Robert and I submitted Tickets. Thanks though for reading my Thread 🙂
Update #1 from Miro support:
Did you hear any Update
@Robert Johnson ?
I am wondering, because I CC’d you on the ticket, do you see if when you
I am not receiving any Updates
@Robert Johnson, in actual fact they Closed my Ticket and left your Ticket Open.
Interesting… I was using my Mobile Phone and confirmed the Bug does not affect the Mobile App like it is affecting the Desktop Browser and Desktop App.
Hard to believe not many Folks in the Miro Community use this Function?
So far no updates and Miro Board Links embedded inside a Miro Comment Bubble do not work.
My feedback is that I do not expect this behaviour. When I click on an external link on a Miro board, I expect it to open in a new window/tab and to still have the Miro board available to me. I expect the same behvaviour in a comment as in, for example, a link in a text object. The behaviour is inconsistent - not something I expect, and is a poor user experience.
Latest update from the Miro support team:
I have tested and it working for me and some others.
When I put a link to an object in another board in a comment, it opens the target board in a new tab and takes me to the object. PASS
I put a link to an object on the same board in a comment. When I click the link, the whole board reloads in the same Miro desktop app frame, but it does make me to the object. (TECHNICALLY A) PASS.
Dropping here to tell you that the improvement the team promised to work on is available already! Now the link pated to the comment leading to the widget located on the same board brings you to it (in both web version and desktop app).
You can still click on the link with the mouse wheel or use the hotkey Ctrl/Cmd + clicking with the mouse to open the page in the new tab if this suits your workflow better. Hope this makes Miro usage at least a little bit easier for you.
Thanks for the update,
I have tested in both Chrome and the desktop app and everything is working as expected 😀
