Change the text on a url for a link???
How do you do that??

I know how to cut and paste an address in a post and make it a working link but how do you change the text to something else and still have the link work??

Thanks (and I thought I knew a lot about computers!)

Just do that without the space after the =. You can use the url at the top of the post reply screen. Once for the and again for the .

This is what I do, too.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
