How do I get the format to say " click here " instead of cutting and pasting the whole address

  jonnytub 21:46 04 Aug 2004

type it???

You've got to cut and paste the URL to make the forum convert into a click here.

cabbieman, It is taken care of for you! Just paste your (full) link in the appropriate part of your message. You will then discover that "click here" appears in the actual post.

Or type it as jonnytub says, risk of typos then.

it's magic

What happens if I want to send the address via an email.Will it come out as the whole address?

  jonnytub 21:50 04 Aug 2004

cut and splat is defintely the quiker and most accurate method.

  jonnytub 21:51 04 Aug 2004

yes the typo was quiker not splat :-)

  jonnytub 21:53 04 Aug 2004

some email providers support this and some don't, don't know about outlook, never used it.

If you send a link via email it usually appears as a complete address, normally highlighted in blue so the recipient can click on it that will take the recipient to the web page.
