Hi Guys,

I cant remember how to do it - If i want to add a link to my post but only want to use a word.........for example CLICK HERE, rather than adding the whole link address.

Please can someone remind me?

Thanks in advance.:-D

No, you don't need "'s in vBulletin (also, I mistakenly put .com.com in there, but obviously have now fixed it to the correct one :oops:)

Sorry guys I am a bit thick today - my pregnancy brain has takjen over completely.

how do i insert the word that i want to use?
Type the word that you want to replace the normal url, so for example type CLICK HERE.

Highlight CLICK HERE by holding the left mouse button and dragging it over CLICK HERE.

At the top of the text box, there is a symbol with a globe with a chain link(I think) in the foreground, click that symbol, and it will bring up a box titled "explorer user prompt.

If it has http in it already, delete this and paste in the shortcut you want to link to.

Then click 'OK'

That's okay.

I have never tried typing out the code, my way is probably longer, but easier for a beginner like myself.

Today I was able to fiddle about with a play.com code to get a Pink DS added to my basket. It was the 1st time I tried to do it, I was pleased with myself. :-D
