Question Posting a link in a message question

How do I insert a link in a post without it coming out as the www. text? With the old software I could name the link whatever I wanted (i.e. CLICK HERE or CLICK THIS) & the name became the clickable link, not the www. text.

I know it can be done because I've seen it in other member's posts, but I can't find out where to do it.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Lori: I had some trouble with it also, here is how I did it type in the name of the link, highlight then click on the insert link above and type in the www., address it should work. Hope this helps.

I'm having trouble but I get what you're saying. I'm probably doing something incorrectly. Thanks for the info.

Lori...
What I would like you to do .. is copy a URL that you want to link to. Next - type "Look Here". After you do that.. ..highlight the words "Look Here". When you have it highlighted.. go to the 7th emblem from the right.. it looks like a blue & green world with a link on it - Click that and then paste in the URL... Click ok.. and finish your post!

Thanks, MM.

It took me a while, but I figured out what I was doing wrong. I was deleting the http:// that's in that hyperlink box & typing in the www part of the URL. It kept coming up with a 404 error. But once I left the http:// in there & followed it with the www address, it worked.

'Cept, now that I spent all that time trying to figure out what I did wrong, I lost my editing window to go back to the post I wanted to correct. As a rally coordinator, I'm supposed to have more time. I put in for a request, but I'm still waiting on it.

Or do it the long way by using the url tag.
It would look like this (without the bolded part)
[url=http://www.irv2.com/]text here[url]

The finished product would be
text here
