    I've seen several post where folks are putting in links, but they seem to be doing something I can't figure out how to do. They put the link in their post, but unlike when do it, they just have a word or two while all I can do is the whols web address.....

    How do you do that?

    One forum I post in does the change for you, but it looks as though here folks are doing it on their own.

    Yeah, that does it, but you can make it automatic if you highlight the text you want to make into a link, then click the "Insert link" button (The globe with the chain) above the text box in the tools.

    This is a standard convention in most forums these days, thankfully.

    EDIT: HAHA. Myspace? Really? Real men Facebook.
