I made a submission, but the link doesn't work; it got turned into a self post

When submitting a link, there are (generally, this will vary by subreddit) two tabs: 'link' and 'text'. If you select 'text', your post will automatically become a self post, but you will be able to type in supplemental text in the 'text(optional)' field. There is no way to have both text and a url.
