    Question about posting links

    I'm not sure I know how to ask this but here goes. When you post a link, how do you make the link appear as here

    You use the url command. When you enter it, it should look like:Which shows up in the post as: http://www.troublefreepool.com/index.html

    Hi Lynn

    I use the here.

    You can simply copy and paste the address to make it show up as Jason posted, without using the [url] option

    Hey Ted

    question-about-posting-links-t24988.html


    I know how to copy and paste, like I did above. But how do you make all the jibberish above appear as just the word here. I've seen posts where all you clicked on was the word here and it took you to the link.

    Re: Question about posting links

    You mean like this?

    here

    Select url and then:
    add your title here

    For your purposes, the 'add your title here' part will be the word 'here'.
