Inserting links, is it me?

Discussion in 'Site Support' started by smokeysmoo, 7 May 2012.

  1. Every time I follow the instructions for inserting a link it still leaves the full URL as the link!

    How do I edit it to say eg: LINKY?

    This was always a doddle on the old software, but I've never got it since the changeover.

    Set me on the right path please guys

    Still a doddle here.

    You highlight the word / phrase you want to associate with the URL

    You then click on the insert / edit link symbol

    You paste the URL into the box

    That's it

    Cheers Manonabike, I was wondering about that myself. The link doesn't actually work until you post the thread, that's why I thought it wasn't working. :blush:

    You say what you want first
    then you highlight what you said
    then you click on the insert a link icon
    then you paste the URL in the box
    then you click on insert
    No editing is necessary

    It must be me then. I can obviously copy the text and use the insert link button, but how do you then edit it to say what you want?
    As above, I can insert it but how do you edit it?

    Or if you're used to BBCode then it's
    Code:
    [url='http://www.google.co.uk']Google[/url]
    That would look like this: -
