Earlier today, I was encountered with two strange behaviors in LibreOffice Writer. ... (1) In the footer of the page, I had page number and date, in the template. But when I clicked the template, there was no page number (and no date) in the footer. I went to Google, ... . The solution was: View --> Field Names and the page number and date appeared.

You can toggle between the display of filed name and their values.

(2) Whenever I typed an internet address, there was no underscore: The underscore does not appear even now.

You can easily underline any text by selecting it and using right-click | Style > | Underline (or in various other ways). But perhaps you mean more than that?

o If you want URLs to be automatically detected and converted to hyperlinks, you need to have the option(s) ticked at Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Options | URL Recognition.

o If you are finding hyperlinks are not appearing in the correct colour and with the correct style, you can modify the appropriate styles at Format | Styles and Formatting. Click on the Character Styles button and right-click the relevant style and select Modify... | Font Effects. The relevant styles are Internet Link and Visited Internet Link.

You do realise that automatic detection will not occur until you follow the URL with a space or line break or paragraph break (or similar?)?

I trust this helps.
