Sorry, new users can only put 5 links in a post

what does this mean? I’m trying to post, but I get this error.

New users start as Trust Level 0. At that level, they can only use 5 links/URLs in each post. This is to combat spam. A higher Trust Level can be reached by looking around on the forum for 10 minutes. There is more information here:

That’s what it sounded like, but I didn’t link anything. I just types (and copy/pasted) text in the title and body.

Sometimes if you copy and paste text with a link in it from a website into Discourse, it counts too. Also, I believe images and attachments count (but I don’t know if you’re allowed to use those yet if you can only use 5 links). Can you share the post on pastebin, GitHub Gists or something else you’re comfortable with?

Thanks, I’l see what I can do.
