    How to include a link with text to a post?
    When I'm posting to this forum, I can't seem to get an html link to show up as certain text, even when I use the basic html code that would work on a web page. For example, if I want to post to the forum and have it show up like bethany's link in this thread:
    http://forum.abestweb.com/showpost.p...51&postcount=1

    (Where rather than show the full address, her post shows an underlined link with the words "this thread at webmasterworld"). I tried using <a href="http://www.etcetc.com"> THIS method</a>, but the forum won't parse it as html, and it's just read literally with the html tags around it. Thanks in advance.

    Is it what you mean?
    bethany's link

    Just select Advanced,
    type your text, select it, then go to Insert Link

    type your URL

    Gee, that was far too easy.

    Just making sure that it works.
    Thanks Zeus!
