    Hi Folks

    When leaving an answer to a post a lot of people leave a link to a web page. Instead of just leaving the web page address they say click here .

    How do you do that.

    Cheers
    Jim

    Jim. your link's not working ... :roflmto:

    To do the clever link thingy ...

    highlight the word you want as a link (a right click and drag your mouse) , then click on the Link Icon , paste the url and jobs done ..

    Hi Jim

    If you go to Website help and then open sub forum 'How To' .... among others, Jim has put up a great video 'The Right way to add a link to your posts'

    Thats how I learnt anyway :thumb: Guess I should have put a link to it :Doh:

    when you click on the link icon and the box opens make sure you either delete the HTTP// in the URL address bar or change it in the 'Type' box above to 'other'. then paste the URL.
    easier to delete the existing HTTP.
    otherwise it will enter HTTP// twice and the link probably wont work.
