    Hi

    Can anyone tell me how to put a 'name' in a link without showing all the link details if you know what i mean, seen people post links where you can just click on a single word and it opens the web page.

    The simpler explained the better.

    Thanks inadvance.:)

    Link

    looks like

    Code:
    [plain][URL="http://www.bing.com"]Link[/URL][/plain]
    Or you can use the [​IMG] button to add a link to a selected item (text or image).

    What you do is click on the hyperlink button in reply/post box. It looks like a globe with two chain links, and it will ask you for the url. You enter it, then it will insert it, and highlight the url, with another copy of it in brackets with some other stuff. You then type whatever you like to replace the highlighted text, and there you have it.

    For example: Google.

    In a post on these forums or on a web page?

    For a post on these forums you can use something like:

    [url="http://www.google.com"]This goes to Google![/url]

    For a web page you would use:

    <a href="http://www.google.com">This goes to Google!</a>

    Both would end up looking like this:

    [url="http://www.google.com]This goes to Google![/url]
