How do y'all get your links to look like single words instead of posting the entire url? :thinking:

Kelly, I just figured it out! If you hover your mouse over the URL button when composing a post, you can see the way to do it. It there's an easier way, I'm sure someone else will tell us. :XX: I can't stop with the emoticons!

My fifteen year old daughter walked me thru this... click the url button on the right above your reply. Inside the brackets that appear, you need to type an "equals" sign and the address (URL=http://www.blahblahblah.blah) THEN TYPE WORD SUCH AS "HERE" then click the url button again. All of these elements must be touching each other. The small type right above the box may give you the idea, if this wasn't clear.

Or, you can do it longhand:

[ url=http://knittinghelp.com ]best knitting site in the world[ /url ]

Taking out the spaces between all text and brackets should get you this:

best knitting site in the world (http://knittinghelp.com)

Hitting the url button doesn't always work. If you want to go back and put in a link, the button won't put it where you put your cursor. It will move it to the end of your message. Sooo, here's how you type it:

[+url=http://link.com]Link[/url+]

Don't mind the red colour + symbol. I had to put that in, so I didn't actually make a fake link.

Well your post wasn't there when I was reading it. Yours just happen to show up before mine. Otherwise you would be the goofball....goofball.

There is no seperating 'the two of us'. We are one soul, living in two bodies. :rollseyes:

Do I look constipated or something in my avatar? I swear or not, the sun was in my eyes when this photo was taken.

You are welcome, but there will be no using Kelly as a vehicle for passive agressive digs! :lol:

Nothing passive agressive about it, Kelly. The three of us love to insult each other directly, too.
