Quick question - Adding hyperlinks to posts and sig's
« on: January 19, 2008, 08:41:20 PM »
Hi there,
How do you add a hyperlink to a message or signature? Sure, I can just paste in the web address, but how do you make it so a link appears with a different link text?

Use the little "chain-link" graphic at the left above the font selector in the reply page

like this

Or, just type it in, it's loads faster  :-P

20  FOR C = 1 TO 2
30     DA-NA-NAAAA-NAAAA DA-NA-NA-NA-NAAAA
40     DA-NA-NAAAA-NAAAA DA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NAAAAA
50  NEXT C

{url=}{/url}

replace {..} with [..] and <..> with the URL / text.

I think the rules say something about having to hide the URL under that link thingy. Especially those 30 mile long ones that screw up the formatting.

Any tips for separating two hyperlinks by a bit of space, rather than having to put them onto new lines?

Couldn't find an appropriate thread for this, so I'm injecting the qustion here, and hopefully you guys can help me with this:

how to add a hyperlink but which instead of text has a (small)image for anchor (which is of course clickable, which when clicked takes you to the target URL)

Thanks
