Links

Can someone provide us PC challenged folks a short lesson on how to add a link to another thread or website while posting a thread? Everything I have tried in the cut and paste world doesn't seem to work.

1. Highlight the URL from the web page you want to link.

2. Right click the mouse and select COPY.

3. Type the text in your iRV2.com post that you want to represent the link - in this example, I'll use HERE to represent a link to the Empire State Building website.

4. Highlight the text that you just typed to represent the link - HERE in our example.

5. Go to the toolbar above your post and click on the LINK symbol - the globe with the chain link in front of it.

6. Paste the URL you copied earlier in the space provided. Note: http:// defaults into this space. You may have to delete the default http:// if the URL you copied already has http:// in it before you paste the URL into the space.

7. Click OK at the right side of the link box. The text you highlighted in your iRV2.com post should now be underlined.

8. The link should appear like this - HERE

You can also make a link the old-fashioned way as follows:

{url=http://www.esbnyc.com/index2.cfm?noflash=1}HERE{/url} replacing the {} brackets with []. The software will then parse the link as follows:

HERE

I will work on that, but how do you reference another thread on this forum? Thanks for the help Rusty.

Just go to the thread you want to reference and copy the URL from the bar at the top of the page. Then you can use either method I've described above.

Just a hint - Lots of times I'll open another browsing tab in IE, open a second copy of iRV2 in the new tab and go to the thread I want to reference - that way I can toggle back and forth between the thread I want to reference and the thread in which I'm creating a new post just by changing tabs.
