I couldn't think of how to describe my request in the title. What I'm after doing is posting url links to Photobucket. When I copy and paste the link on to a forum site, I get the whole url. I'd like to be able to say 'click here' to replace the url. I've seen this before on other sites but never known how to do it. Does this make sense? If so, how do I manage it?
It's me again. I've managed so far to use the tinyurl thing but it will not go onto my toolbar so I've had to add it to favs and use it from there. That's not a problem. (I did follow the instructions for putting it on the toolbar.) Now how do I change the wording from tinyurl.com to 'click here'? Am I missing something?
If I am following this right. No YOU can't do this yourself.
'Click Here' only appears in your posted messages if the Forum you are posting to, automatically changes the link/address you put in your posts/response to 'Click Here'.
This site (PC Advisor)does this automatically, all we do is 'Copy and Paste' the address of the page we wish to link to into our responses, after we click 'Post Response' (at the bottom of the page) the address is automatically converted to 'Click Here' by the PCA Site itself, not by us.
Try it and see. Go to a site (say The BBC) Highlight the address bar at the top of the page 'Cut and Paste' it to the reply box at the bottom of this page.
After you click 'Post Response' it will show up on this on this site as 'Click Here' automatically (changed by the site not us).
To place the TinyURL! link on your Links toolbar, click the TinyURL! shortcut, look in the address bar for the address. Click and drag the blue Internet Explorer Icon to the Links toolbar. The link will only go on the toolbar when you see a thick black vertical line similar to 'I'.
