Second thoughts. Why don't I just put it in here & others may benifit.

Hyperlink Procedure:

At the bottom of a Post Follow-up or Post Reply you will see the following:-

To Post Hyperlinks:
For links: link text

Use Windows Copy & Paste to insert the hyperlink into your Post

Select the Hyperlink line, leaving out For Links: by holding down the left mouse key and swiping the remainder of the line so that it is highlighted. Press the Ctrl and C keys together to copy the selection into memory.

Place the cursor at the desired position in your Post and Press the Ctrl and V keys together to Paste a copy of the selected text into the Post.

The domain.com/path is replaced with your Website URL (in the case of the sample I have used the Exploroz Website) and optionally, the link text bit with something along the lines of:- Exploroz.
So, ignoring the For Links: prefix, you should end up with:-

Exploroz

The result on the forum post will show simply as Exploroz and if you place the cursor over the link reference, the full URL will be displayed.

Cheers,
Bill

Bugger, It converted when I didn't want it to. Now I know why I had the Word Document:-)

Sand Man's example should have looked like this (Now let's see if is works this time)

For links: <a href="http://domain.com/path">link text</a>

If you click on it, it come up big enough to read and you can see what you copy and paste to link and give a name to the link if you want. Carolyn
