HELP!!! Links
Will someone please explain how to insert links in a message? I can do it after several tries. Also, how do you make the link say something else like "here"?

If it's just a link, just type the url starting with http://AndItWillLinkAutomatically.

Or to link words, do it like this, 'cept remove the spaces.
[url = http://URLHERE ]name of the link[/ url]

It took me a long time to get it right.

Click on the URL above [url]

Then you insert = between the l and the ] [url]

When your curser is after the =, paste your link [url=http:whatever]

immediately after the second ] type the word you want [url=http:whatever]here

Then click on the URL again (it will have an * )


When you have a real link it will look like this
