Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
I want a Flickr link in my signature box. How do I post a link that says "Flickr" instead of showing the full web address? Also how is this done with any web address that is posted? Such as "go here" vs. the entire web address. What I want are highlighted word(s) that you would click on the take you to a web address.
You enter the whole link and when it shows as one, you highlight it and then write on top of it. If it's more than one word (such as in "go here") you must not push the space bar inbetween, or only "go" will become your hidden address. You must type "go_here".
OK, thanks. How do you "write on top of it"?
You don't need the underscore and you can quite safely have a space in the piece of text you are trying to hyperlink. All you need to do is this:

  1. Type the piece of text you want to act as your link e.g. "This is a link to my flickr site"
  2. Highlight the piece of text
  3. Click on this button
  4. Paste or type your URL into the dialogue box that appears e.g. http://www.flickr.com/photos/chris-of-arabia/
  5. Click on 'OK'
  6. Voila! This is a link to my flickr site :thumbup:
Now you try :D
