How to reference other posts/adds etc.

Many times I want to reference other posts or websites. What procedure is required to do this?

This is our general policy on other sites.

While we do permit a reference or link to a specific thread or post in another RV forum that may help one of our members resolve a specific issue, it's not appropriate to refer our members to another RV forum to post their questions, general reading, or suggest they join another RV forum.

iRV2 is for the discussion of topics here by our members. Suggesting our members go elsewhere for discussion is a akin to someone coming to a party at your house and notifying your guests that there's a better party at another house.

Also, members can link to a commercial site as long as they have no financial interest in the site.

If you have a question regarding a specific site, please contact us to clarify.

Thanks!

Sorry I did not explain myself. I do not wish to refer to another RV post but I don't know the step by step procedure to accomplish the task.

Do I have to download it from previous posts? Looking for the mechanics of referencing another IRV post info to help answer an existing IRV post. The references I see are underlined.

Thanks for the comeback.

On a separate tab in your browser go to the post you want to reference, and right click on the number of the post that is in the upper right corner of the post, then select 'copy link address' - or whatever words like that your particular browser uses.
Then just right-click and 'paste' into your reply.

Your post #3 above
How to reference other posts/adds etc.

You don't HAVE to do this in a separate tab, it's just a bit easier than going to the post you want to reference, and then going back to the one you want to reply to.

~To "Quote" another post in your reply...use the "Quote" button (bottom right) on that post...looks like the block below.

Thanks for the comeback.
~To add a hyperlink of another thread...copy and paste the URL from your Address block...looks like this:
How to reference other posts/adds etc.

~To add a hyperlink to a particular post...follow the directions above by "Podivin"

~To add a hyperlink to a website outside iRV2...FIRST consider the instructions listed by Route66 (above). If the link is OK under those guidelines, follow the same instructions as "Podivin" gave above for hyperlinking a post.

Some folks use the "Insert a link" function to add a hyperlink to text within their post...like in this sentence.
That is done using the "Insert a link" function/button in the top bar of the advanced "Reply to Thread" block.
Here's another example - linked to Winnebago's corporate website: See Winnie's Website


Thanks for contributing
