My Links in Proposals Are Not Clickable

Hello Upwork Community, 

I have recently noticed that every time I include a link in my Upwork Proposal, it is not clickable. While the client can still copy and paste the link into a browser, this is too much of a hassle for someone who is busy and has to check dozens of proposals. 

 

My question is to the Upwork Team: Can you get this problem fixed so that the links can be clickable? 

 

I believe every freelancer who uses links in his/her proposals would appreciate a quick solution.

I also just noticed this. It's a problem as I cannot now include links to behance, or to my work samples on my website.

Hi there! I noticed too that my links are not clickable. I wonder, it displays non-clickable links for me, but for clients they are clickable? (I attached screen)

It's still not working. dear team members, I know you guys are working hard, but if that link is not clickable, then our client's won't be interested to check our portfolio and that's a huge loss for us, do your best, thanks

Why is it that when I copy and paste a link (Behance link to show the client a sample of my work) into a proposal, it does not appear as a "clickable" link?

 
Thanks.

Hello, 

 

Links are not working in my proposals either.  I remember the links used to be clickable last year.  

For client job postings, the links are working as expected.   

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks, 

J.

I am also noticing the same issue; links in the proposals are not getting clickable. Clients usually don't bother to copy/paste the link. Its a real problem for freelancers.

Whenever I link my google docs to show clients that I have written relevant articles, they aren't clickable. I have tried using every type of format for pasting the link in my cover letter but it isn't clickable as it should be. I have asked many people and they say that their links are clickable. What is the problem with my account?

I am a client.

 

Put your portfolio on your profile page.

 

I don't want to see links in your cover letter. I want to be able to see your portfolio in the regular place.

Hi Upwork team,

I have been having this issue for a long time now, when I send a proposal, my profile links appear as "Undefined", and my Upwork portfolio (and Behance) links are not clickable when I add them to my cover letters.

 

I've noticed this had happened to a lot of people on the platform.

Please help us in resolving this issue.

 

Thanks!

- Sebastian.
