    Default Could you show me how please?

    I notice in this forum especially that there will be a word like link which is in blue usually. There is one in "The Shout Box" at the moment that Canuck posted. How does he do that?

    I have noticed this in many forums with different words to click which of course leads to different sites.

    Could someone guide me as to how this is done.........thanks

    kind regards,

    In the shout box if you paste in a URL you just copied it will show up saying «link» But here on the boards I haven't yet figured out how to insert a URL into a word and make it work. Someone should be along soon to explain how to insert links into words here on the boards. If you look in the shout box right now you will see the word link, it's the URL that leads to this post.

    What BG showed you is called BBCode. Here is a link to check out that helps explain some of the BBCode

    One other thing, the BBCode does not work in the Shout Box, only in forum posts

    If you see a post and wonder how they wrote it, click quote and it will break it down into the BBCode for you. Just remember not to hit submit unless you did want to quote them :wink:

    One reason it did not make sense maybe is because of couple tags were not right for this forum.

    I use them at another forum and they are fine there, but not here.

    Sorry H...

    Default For BG

    BG, well I did it, very easy when I concentrated, but goodness it is the long way around rather than highlight/copy/paste!

    Does your way (this way) work on all sites, ie forums or not?

    Thanks for you extra help on this, just a dummy at the beginning I think!
