How do you post a link and assign a different name to it? I see some of you do it all the time, but can't figure it out.

Select the "Reply" feature and make sure it's UBBCode enabled. In the post options immediately above the typing area is a line of small icons in squares..the first one is for the hyper link. Click on that and then just follow the directions. Make sure you've copied the address to which you want to link then paste it in the appropriate spot. Once you've done that and clicked on "OK" you'll get a new box where you can put in whatever it is you want to call the link.

I don't know if that's all clear but it's about as clear as I can make it without knowing the technical language \:\/ I'm something of a dolt when it comes to these things.

[url=paste the web address here]Type whatever you want to name the link here[/url ]

When you do it, eliminate the space I put between /url and the end bracket. I had to do that so it wouldn't appear as a link.

Thank you. I think (?) I understand. I'll try it.
