Question about posting links...
« on: June 19, 2003, 12:57 PM »
How do you post a link as just a word rather than the entire URL?

Use the handy dandy YABBC tag when you reply. When you do, you'll get something like this:

[ url=http://www.yoururl.com]URLText[/url ]

Just replace the default url ("http://www.yoururl.com") with the address you want (I'll use "http://www.cnn.com" for brevity):

[ url=http://www.cnn.com]URLText[/url ]

Then replace the URL Text tag with whatever you like (in this case I'll just use "CNN").

[ url=http://www.cnn.com]CNN[/url ]

Hit "Preview" to see if it works. If so you should see a link like this:

CNN

Try it.  :D

Sweet! Thanks PL!

Don't mention it, citizen. Once you've mastered that, you can even add links to PICTURES, like so:



Pretty cool, huh? 8)

You lookin' for some work?   ;)

Just helping a brother out. (Did that come off as humble? I have a tough time with humble.)

Boy, the new avatar, figuring out links, winning the figure contest, posting picture links...  You're really on a roll today Ed!  We'll have to recognize you as JD member of the day, or sumthin'...   8)

Look what you've done John, you've created a monster!  Next thing you know, Ed's going to figure out the rest of those handy little gadgets in the posting box, and start inserting tables, quotes, bullets, or glowing and shadowed text!   ;D
