Ok I hate computers, I really don't understand them


How do you post a link on here as a "word" and not www.ect..ect...co.uk

If that makes any sense

Cheers
type the "word" then highlight it and click on the
link icon above. then in the top section insert the link and the bottom section will already say the "word".

Job done!

That's interesting, I've always done it by copying the URL, then clicking the
button, pasting into the "URL" box, typing the word into the "Link Text" box, and clicking the "insert link" button. Swings and roundabouts I guess.

I always type the code out as pop-up blockers stop the boxes appearing. Besides, it's the same on pretty much every php forum going.

Code:
[url=www.yourlinkhere.com]Whatyouwanttoappearhere[/url]
You can also have a picture as a clickable link...

Code:
[url=www.yourlinkhere.com][img]www.picURLhere.com[/img][/url]

but please don't do that. it makes it really confusing for most and although you'll think it's cool at the time, someone will end up having to explain it

if anyone starts making clickable emoticons, i'll set the hounds on you!

When I click on the insert link icon the pop up box thing only shows half itself on my screen. It sits very off centre to the left, to the point where I can only see about 4cm of it. It is so far to the left that I can't see the text for the link address. Why is this folks? How can I get it to appear in the middle?
