Just wondering about how to properly post a link. I know you use the URL button, but do you click that before or after you paste the link? it never seems to look right when I do it. Question

comet, to turn the URL into a hyperlink, highlight the URL and then hit the URL button at the far right of the formatting buttons.
Like this
http://chocolateandzucchini.com


To post a link that is embedded in the text, cut and paste the link, eg

http://chocolateandzucchini dot com Then put the symbols [url= in front of the http, ] at the end of the URL, write something like Clotilde's fabulous Chocolate and Zucchini blog then finish with [/url]

Give it a try on this thread.

It doesn't look right. I think I have had enough of computers for today. I get quite cranky with them when I can't do things.
Thanks though!

comet, try cutting and pasting this line of text, but remove the & symbol wherever you see it ...

[url=&http://chocolateandzucchini.com&]Clotilde's fabulous Chocolate and Zucchini blog[/url&]

There are a total of 3 & symbols.

I spend half my life looking at html and php code 'cos I run a few websites, so I've learnt a couple of things along the way.

I'm back and I have recovered from my computer tantrum! Have cut and pasted the text...is that what it should look like?

[url=http://chocolateandzucchini.com]Clotilde's fabulous Chocolate and Zucchini blog[/url]

Now, Judy, clever lady, I am having a website designed soon, and don't really understand a lot about it...do you mind if I ask you some questions if they come to mind?

That's right, comet, but it should look look this

Clotilde's fabulous Chocolate and Zucchini blog

And I'm not sure why it doesn't. Anyway, you got it right.

A website! How exciting - what's it for? Send me an email so that we don't distract too many people from the 'real' business of these forums Wink

Comet - You had the code exactly right in your last post, but on the editing screen, you must have the box "Disable HTML in this post" checked for some reason. Uncheck it, and you're good to go!

Thanks for clearing that up, Clotilde. I did wonder about that and thought I'd suggest that next.

Comet - I checked your profile (which you can access by clicking the link "Profile" at the top of any forum page) and your two options "Always allow html" and "Always allow BBCode" were set to "No," which explains your difficulties (no idea why they were set to no, though).

I was able to set them to yes, and I invite you to try posting a link again -- you had got it just about right in the "I won!" topic, except you had omitted the opening "http://" (a web link doesn't work without that) -- I've corrected it for you.
