HOW do you put a link in one word of your text?

Postby AwayinaChive » 05 Nov 2011, 20:24

I can do it on other sites but when I try it here it doesn't work. I mean, if you say, 'This link has useful information' and 'This' is bold or coloured and if you click on it, it takes you to the link. I try highlighting the word, clicking the URL button, then pasting my link there, and it just pastes the whole thing, and doesn't embed it in the word. Does anyone know what I mean?

I imagine you have to do it html. It's [a href=link]linky word [/a]

Though that didn't work, so maybe not...!

You click on the URL link, then you have to put the link inside the brackets like this [url=www.whatever] and the between the two sets of brackets you put the text you want to make clickable. I hope this makes sense!

I'm confused and can't get it to work! How come it's not like on other sites where you just highlight your text, then click url, then paste your url and that's it?

ok, let's try this v1@gr@ cheap

This is one thread where spammers really could have something to contribute, as they're nothing if not good at embedding links. But where are they all? Tsk!

Funny blog

Yay I did it again!

I think the button needs to be fixed to that the equal sign is put in. When I higlighted my text and then clicked the URL button, I had to put an equal sign and then paste my link and that worked. It would be way easier if I didn't have to put an equal sign. And I'll most likely forget how to do this!

I've just added another one to your stat list. I couldn't resist after this invitation. And then I lol'd at there being no water in the paddling pool. Sorry. :wink:
