Question About Links
#1
Is it allowed to post a web address link to another site? I noticed that other people have included links but they're not the actual web address, they say something like, "Read the rest here." I don't know how to convert the web address to a phrase like that.

Thanks!

If the link is related to the forum, and if it doesn't attempt to solicit forum members, then not only are you allowed, you are encouraged.

In order to convert a link into hyperlinked text (I hope I'm using all the terminology correctly), you simply insert the tags (removing the sapces inside the brackets) [ url=whatever the url is ]Your text here [ /url ].

You can type anything you want inbetween the two tags to give an explanation of where you're leading the reader.

Let me know if that doesn't make sense.
All your base are belong to us.

It could be that the purpose of my life is only to serve as a warning to others.

Start it with the tag [URL="http://homestarrunner.com"], put your title, and then use the regular URL stop tag. On the advanced reply panel it's the Earth with the chainlinks.

Shoot! Rob just barely beat me to it. Oh well!
