WHIR? How do I attach a link to my post

Postby jtsandwich » Wed Jan 27, 2010 11:09 pm

I think I need to be more clear in my question.

What I am trying to figure out is if i want someone to respond/answer my post, when reponding to a post. How do I put a link to my post, that is what I can't figure out.

I would appreciate help on this one.

Open the post you want to post a link to (the one in which you have a question you want answered). Copy the URL (i.e. highlight the webaddress and click CTRL + C or right-click and select copy).

Go respond to a post. After responding click the URL button above the posting window. You will get this: [url][/url]
Put the cursor between the two url boxes and now click CTRL + V or right-click and select paste.

That should do it.

I think jtsandwich means to have a link in his signature that goes to a thread he started elsewhere on the board. :-?

Not sure but if that's the case, go your user control panel on the upper left, click on the "profile" tab, and then click on "edit signature". Copy and paste the link into the comment field and then submit. Now beneath each of your posts, you will have a link to the thread where you need help. ;-D

I think you can also get fancy and use a title for your link instead of it showing the actual link. You do this using the url /url as someone explained above, but you change it just a tad. Type (without the extra spaces):

[ url = paste your link here ] The title of your link [ / url ]

Here's a trial for me and an example:
