I know it's been on here before but I can't find it with the search function.
Can someone please explain to a neanderthal computer user how to create a link.
              Cheers

Open a new browser page and go to the page you want to link to so that you have two pages open. To open a new page go to File > New > Window.

When your new page is open at the page you want to link to, click in the address bar where you type web addresses in to highlight it, then go to Edit > Copy.

Now click in the Reply box and go to Edit > Paste.

Your link should now be in the Reply box.

Please demonstrate that these instructions have worked.  Smiley
  

Dear Noah,
We could have sworn you said the ark wasn't leaving till 5.
Sincerely, Unicorns

Just been practicing. Easy when you know how Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
You can skip having to go to "Edit" by just left clicking>copy when highlighted then left click>paste wherever you want it to go
I surprise myself sometimes Lips Sealed Lips Sealed Lips Sealed

Cool Cool Cool

Any other tricks you want to learn?

You can copy and paste text from posts the same way as well. Just highlight what you want copied by dragging your mouse over it then do the Edit > Copy and Edit > Paste thing.

Hey BB, how do you make a link to a website or what ever but change the name of the link to something other than www.blablabla.... on a post?

Do you mean like this: here is a website?

Click on the Quote button for this post and have a look at the code. You need to add  [url=  then the website link followed by a right bracket]and the description (eg website) then finally  [/url]  to close the tag.

Instructions for linking to YouTube videos are in the How to Post Photos thread in the Photography forum.
