    Default inserting a link

    I know this has been asked before, cause i asked it, { C R C disease },
    How does one attach a link to another post, wiki or website in a post ?
    Like when some of the regulars link to the wiki for the beginners by posting " you can go here " and clicking here brings you to the link.

    Paco, when you hit 'post reply' a text box opens for you to type your post. Just above the white text part there are two tool bars. The little green thing that looks like a planet is what you click on. It will open a window that you paste the link into and hit okay. First run your cursor over "here" to blue it out... then click on the planet thingie on the left.(there are two) Paste you link and click okay and you're in business.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Commiecat showed me a way of doing it with a code as well. The code is:

    (url=XXX)text(/url)

    All you do is replace the XXX with the website address you want, replace the word "text" with the text you want the link to look like (the word "here" or something) and change the () style brackets to [].

    I couldnt use the [] brackets in the example otherwise it would have embedded and you wouldnt be able to see it..!

    So to link to google and have the word google as your link, the code would be:

    (url=http://www.google.co.uk/)Google(/url)

    To get the link to embed you just change the () brackets to [], and you get:

    Google
