    Question on inserting links

    I'd like to insert a link to a webpage in a post. Of course, I can simply paste in the whole address, but I've noticed that other posters use a few words, that when clicked, open up the web page. For example, the words "go here" are underlined and clickable and lead to some web page.

    How do you do that?

    thanks,

    When you go to the reply screen hit the add link button (the world with the chain). It will post the link and then have the link again highlighted were you can type the words.

    The easiest way:

    1. Select (highlight with your mouse) the words "go here" in the post.
    2. Click on the "create link" () button at the top of the reply box.
    3. Paste the URL into the pop-up box.
    4. Left-click on "OK" in the pop-up box (or hit Enter on your keyboard).
    5. Voila!
