    Dummies guide to- Hyperlink (Make words appear as links)(methinks)

    Everyday I hear the same old thing:

    sainty, when are you going to hit us up with another blockbuster like you did with "Spam and Expire" and "Be my buddy", where you explained in your own unique way how to use the forum more effectively.

    I have been busy doing other things(hush, hush) but got around to another.

    Ladies and Gentlemen raise your glasses for the 1st in a short series of dummies guides.

    1. You need to choose the url (link address) of what you want to appear as a word.

    2. Right click your mouse in the box, and then select copy:

    3. Go to the reply box, and type in the word that you want to use instead of the long link.
    In this case, it would be fitting to type in my username, as it is one of the most (mis)used on HUKD.

    4. Highlight the word you want to appear as a link

    5. Click the icon on the top of the reply box that looks like a globe with a chain link underneath.

    6. A pop up box will appear.

    7. Right click your mouse in the field of the pop up box, and choose "Paste".

    8. You will see that the url of the link will be pasted into the box for you.

    9. Your pre-written word will now be incorporated into a link. It will look a mess, but it is fine.
    Click "Post quick reply".

    My link now appears as a word.

    There are several ways of doing this, and you don't have to do it in the order I do.
    You can also use pictures instead of words.

    It seems long winded, but only takes about 10-15 seconds.

    Tags will do, wish that they would sort out a "Tag" search box.

    I read it, but I am still like...:?

    I have only tried it twice TBH, will try again.

    The only thing with images, is that unless it is pointed out, it is impossible to tell that they are in actual fact links.

    I only found out the other night that tags are not used by any of the searches. They are in fact categories which if you click a specific tag you will get a list of all the other deals with that identical tag in & who posted the same tag as you. Ducky was explaining it to us. Clever Guv guy was there also. If we could have a standard drop down list of tags when inserting them, if you then clicked on an xbox360 tag on a deal (because everyone must use exactly the same wording & spacing to keep the group together) you'd get all deals relating to xbox360 etc. Ducky explained it better

    Damn, I can't believe ignore doesn't block the OP
