    How do you clever techy guys manage to re-name your url links? I have got used to "TinyURL", but not yet renaming them i.e.

    http://www.robertsradio.co.uk/pages/R9962.html

    I would like to have re-named it "Like this", but I don't know how:sad:

    Firstly it is much easier than tinyurl!

    You just have to wrap the word(s) you want to be your link with [_remove_url=www.somewebsite.com]your words[_remove_/url].

    Obviously leave out the _remove_ bits.

    Or highlight the text you want to turn into a link, click the 'Insert Link' button and type (or paste) the URL in the box that pops up.

    If you hit the links box you will get something like this:-
    http//:
    Delete that as you have it already in your link.
    Then you will get something like:-
    {url=http/ABCDE.com . whoopy do}http/ABCDE.com . whoopy do{/url}
    The blue highlight is where you overwrite your message. (Square [ ] brackets of course )

    Okay, you seem to be right, I could have sworn I had problems with using quote marks before but there you go!
