PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Re: LINKS"
I understand how to place a link, by typing out the URL: http:// . . .

What I don't understand is how to edit it.

I've seen links called: "Read this Article," Criminals from the Neck Up," "Stop Discrimination Now," etc.

What I can't figure out is how do you make the transition from http://www.blank.com/, to turn these links into regular words?

Any suggestions?

1. "LINKS"
Typing this:
[link:www.survivorblows.com|I found this cool site]

Produces:
I found this cool site

Please note: The url (link) must have the http:// part removed, or it will not work.


You never know what might be up my sleeeve...

...hey eee, maybe I'm a little bit stupider tham most, but how do you make that little vertical line between the "com" and the "I found" part....I don't see that thing anywhere on my keyboard and I'd really like to know cause now that I've mastered bold and itallics I'm ready to take the next step and learn how to do links properly.

Shakes (I hope you don't object to my use of familarity),

I have disregarded, yet again your advice--Yes I know: Flame, flame .

Anyway, I did click your link, and it does work .

*Note: edited beause my use of the English language, and occaisionally, computer/internet literacy, frequently borders on the dyslexic--which I am, BTW.

How does one post a link from SB without http://?

I know how to post a link without it for other web pages, but SBlows DCForum, doesn't have the www. in it.

One last suggestion, although this specific question has already been answered: any time you want to know how to do something that's been done in someone else's post, click "Reply With Quote." The entire post that has the cool stuff in it will be displayed in the message field of your reply, including the code that was used to generate the cool stuff. Copy and paste what you want for later use. Ta-dah! And then, of course, just back out of the Reply page (unless you genuinely want to reply).
