I always have found the "links" function cumbersome. (It's the little icon that looks like a globe with two links underneath.) If you click it, the a first dialogue box opens and prompts for the URL, and then a second dialogue box opens and prompts for the text that becomes a link. To copy and paste meant going back and forth between two browser sessions with the open dialogue box.
I realized today that if I type or pasted the text for the link into the post, then highlighted it and clicked the "quote" icon, I was prompted for the URL only, and the board software automatically inserted the highlighted text, creating the link.
