Help Me Learn To Make Links

Recommended Posts

The way I do it.

Right click on the websites URL,select properties,select copy.

Then at the top of the reply window you will see (http://) left click,a box will open right click over it select paste.

Then click ok,in the next box type what ever you want the link to say ae --click here--,then click ok again.

Click here should look like this. :unsure:

when I went to check your link this is what my mozilla showed me http://

here is what you should have i will use this as an example only.

when you click the http:// button make sure that you put the whole line in, like they said up above, you can preview the link before you actually post it.

so this is what you will see.

I forgot something on my first post after you right click on the URL for the website,select properties,then right click again and select "select all",then right click again select copy.

You can then open a http box holding your mouse over the box right click select paste the address should be pasted in the box.

it works, but make sure your spelling your site correctly, it sent me to a search engine, which is not a good thing unless it is a know engine like google

what text box are you talking about? as I showed you in the thumbnail, on my first post on this thread, you would do as it shows.

First box is the website, second box would be teh name of your website(i.e. webopedia)

then it places teh url line in your response box.

Hello Flash,

Ok, you are in the process of writing a post. After you have gone to the site you want to link to and right clicked the url in the address bar for that site and then chosen copy in the drop down box. Then you click on the http:// grey box above your post. It will open a little line to add your url by right clicking and choosing paste to enter it in. (On some boards you will need to erase/backspace the written in http thing that is already there as it will duplicate the one you paste in, I just do that anyhow by habit). Then another line comes up. Add a short text to describe the site. Either by actual name or what it contains. Whatever will give a clue to what the link is for. (Though people should always hover over a link to double check in status bar where it will take them before clicking on it for their safety).

Also on the thread where you want the link to go, just have your blinking space line, or whatever it is called, entered in your chosen spot in post before you do the boxes. On long urls, it pays to give it some room by double spacing down the paragraph a bit.

Finish your thread, do a preview, and check out that your link works before posting.

This is all easier to do then to explain, sorry about that.

God bless everyone.

Here's a link to using BB Code, which is what's used on this board. It's similar to HTML, but not quite.

The link for your site would look something like this:

substitute [ ], for ( )

(URL=http://www.powerball.com/pb_home.asp)My Webpage(/URL)
