Got another dumb question....

Travel Forums System Talk Got another dumb question....

How do I post the link to a thread without putting the entire www.travellerspoint.etc etc etc etc. If I just want to put the link as "click here", how do I do that? (I told you I was computer iliterate...). Again, this is for anyone to answer...Wocca, Greg?

You really do need to read that help page ;)

It's hard to explain without typing the code and if I do that, then it will create a link you see.

But I'll try.

The easiest is to just type click here and highlight it by dragging your mouse over the selection. Then click on the url button and choose what url it is going to be. Finally, add a [/url] tag just after the 'click here' text. Is that clear? Probably not, but I'm not sure how else to explain it - the help page does a good job.

Like I said before, I have to get off my laziness and practice on that help feature ;) I think I got it though. I will try it sometime today. Thanks again!

Hi Anne,

It's as easy as 1-2-3! Really! :)

Say, you want to make this: Click Me!!!

1. Type the words "Click Me!!!" (without quotes).

2. Use your mouse to select/highlight the words.

3. Click on the Url button. A small window which says "Enter URL" will pop up. Key-in or paste the internet address in the space provided, and click OK.

Voila! You've created an internet link! See, it just 1-2-3!

Cheers,
Hien

I'm asking this under the "Dumb Question" thread cos I don't know where else to put it. It is a dumb question afer all...

Is it possible to add the "ninja" face (found in the Live Chat emoticons) to the choices already available for thread responses? Does that make sense? (The question...) He/she would be very useful at times, when posting on the forums. Just curious and pining for the ninja emoticon. (Brendan will be appreciative too!)
