How to make a link

Postby PaulaO » Fri Jun 03, 2016 2:01 pm

I want to link to http://www.sheplers.com/Ovation-Eurowea ... 02183318:s

1. How do I make a clickable link
2. How do I rename it to be "Rust breeches" instead of that giant URL?

OK, I’m not a programmer, but here goes.

Read http://www.bbcode.org/examples/?id=9 about URL tags.

- - - - -
1. BBCode automatically converts a URL that you copy and paste in a post into a hotlink, after you add a space at the end of the address.

2. For your example
[url=http://www.sheplers.com/Ovation-Euroweave-DX-Taylored-Front-Zip-Knee-Patch-Breeches/53002.pro?gclid=CKm8s7j9ic0CFQgzaQod86ABpw&source=CSE_GoogleShopping_Apparel_and_Accessories-Clothing-Pants_032563&ef_id=Vko92QAAARZq3yTv:20160602183318:s ]Rust breeches[/url ]

But take out the spaces before the two ] brackets.

Be sure all your brackets match; don’t mix a { or } in with [ and ] .

I try to remember to preview my post and try out the link before I hit submit.

Clear as mud?
