How do I post a link?
If you roll the cursor over the "URL
" button just above where you type the message body it shows how the coding should look.
You can get the URL tags by just clicking the "URL" button and it will make a front and back tag for you. You just need to insert the URL. The URL is the web address, it normally starts with "http://www.
" You can get the URL by highlighting the URL at the top of the page you want, then copy and pasting the location.
Doing the above will leave you with a link that looks like this...http://www.climbeasterncanada.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5045
If you would like your link to look shorter or be fancy it takes a little more work. This would be the second example shown when scrolling over the "URL" button.
After clicking the URL button and getting the tags instead of inserting the URL between the url][/url
you insert the URL url
with an "=
" right in front of it.
It should look something like this: url=http://www.climbeasterncanada.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5045]
Your link text here[/url
Due to not being otherwise able to see the above the "[
"at the front and the "]
"at the end are both missing.
The finished link should look like this: Your link text here
You can increase the visibility of the above link by inserting the "bold" tags or "underline" tags around the text you want to show up as your link.
Making it look like this:Your link text here
Or this:Your link text here
Remember to always preview you post before hitting submit.
If you find you are having problems check for spaces between the coding. Spaces are probably the most common and easily missed mistake.
