How to Insert a Hyper Link and Look Like an Advanced User


Have you ever wondered how some members can insert a hyperlink with a custom label like Our Forum instead of http://nexus7forum.com/index.php. Both hyperlinks take you to the same place, but the custom label has distinction.

Note, that I am removing the left and right outside brackets in the examples so that they show as text and not an actual hyperlink.

First copy the hyperlink to you clipboard. Then choose “Insert Hyperlink” at the point you want to add it to your post and you get “url][/url” with cursor flashing in the middle. Move the cursor to the point following the first “url” add an “=” sign and paste your hyperlink, so that it looks like “url=http://nexus7forum.com/index.php][/url". Then type your custom label between the last two brackets, so that it looks like this, “url=http://nexus7forum.com/index.php]Our Forum[/url” and you are done.

Note you have the option to type the custom label first and then paste the url the order is not relevant.

Hey Jim, when you press the "world" icon (under strike-thru icon) when in posting box, is that the insert hyperlink?

I wish I knew what the icons in the second row mean and how to use them when posting.  I use a few, but some I do not press as I don't know what they do  :o :o :o

Okay, thanks for the help

Pressing the world icon above the smileys just puts in the 'url' '/url' symbols but replace the quote with a bracket either [ or ].
