Your text here!! How to post a link in your reply.

A bit of info for those getting used to the 'new site'.

You post a link by clicking on the chain symbol just above the reply box.
That will bring up a box that you paste your link into. (For IE you may need to ' temporarily allow scripted windows on the info bar ^ to allow the box to pop up.)

If you are not copying and pasting the URL from the address bar remember to add the http:// before the www.

When you click on OK the link will be in the reply box and there will be a section that says 'your text here'.

Replace that with a suitable text and when you click 'reply' your link will have what you have written, rather than 'Your text here'.

I have repeated all this with pics in the thread!!

Looks like my edit skills are not so great - just lost that reply! Pride comes before a fall.

The answer is a resounding NO, NO!! NO!! Marina.

Cheers Deek *thumbs up*
