If you just copy the URL that you want to link to from your browser and then paste it in the text box......when you post your response the blue 'click here' text will automatically display.

Or just type a website address as thus:


If you leave out the space in that address it will then appear as 'click here'.

When this is the case, you can use a couple of facilities to "make a shorter link".
