    I know how to enter an URL so that one can link to another page - like this
    http://www.southwestlife.com.au/outdoors0104.htm

    But if I want to have "this" as the word you click on for the URL, how do I enter the address? I know how to do it in my e'mail (using AOL) but can't figure it out here.

    P.S., I realize I just changed this to the "feedback and suggestions and HELP!" section so feel free to move to a more appropriate place.

    Use this code:

    [ url=http://www.theaddress.com]Go to this site[/url ]

    except without the spaces!

    I had this question myself a while back so I went over to THE SUPPORT FORUM, Chase's other site, and asked it there. Man, those guys are great. EVERYONE should go join! :)

    Thanks, Core, I'll give that a try. I do have tons of questions about computers but I'm not sure I can afford (in time) to join another forum. I shall visit there someday, though.

    Funny thing is, I had thought about that forum for this question but since I know how to enter a different description using my email I figured it was something specific to this forum.

    Thanks!

    Both of the forums use phpBoard, so it's the same. Also the code type itself is called BB code and a lot of kinds of boards use it, like Manda's does, and so does the STD board.

    If you have other comp questions, you can certainly post em on my board or email me if you want! :)

    Thanks, Mindy, seems like I'm always asking you computer questions!
