edit: Joeband filled me in on how to do this the easy way...in the reply box type in the text you want the link to say...highlight the text you just typed...then click the Link button and paste the web address into the box and click ok...you will see an underline under the text you entered which will tell you that it is now a link...then just post it


now that the formatting has changed a bit i couldn't remember the code order to insert a link with different words other than the link address...follow the following format...

[U-RL="http://webaddress"]text you want to see[/URL]

yes you can do that or you can just paste the link address into the reply box and post it...but you can't control what the link says once you post it...this is really only helpful for signatures and links that you want it to say something specific...it doesn't really matter otherwise...i had to figure it out on this new site when i changed my signature...i think it was much easier on the old site

maybe i am the one that is missing something...when you hit the link button you paste the web address into the box but where do you highlight something?
