Have you ever tried the HELP pages?

So how do I hide the URL when I am linking to a site - and instead have it have any word I want it to have overlaying the link - like you did above with the word "HELP" which is actually a link to the URL for the help page?????

As you have probably noticed, I always just put www. actualwebite . com (or whatever)  because I have never been able to figure out how you all put what ever words you want......  (Ms. P, Rev, Ann, MattyD, and a few others are so good at being able to this - and I want to be right up there with you all.)     

Ann:
What you write out should look like what I've written in the box below:


--- Code: ---
 [url=http://forums.poz.com/index.php?action=help][color=navy]HELP[/color][/url]


--- End code ---

HELP

I usually add in the color=navy bit because it makes the link stand out a little better. Not an awful lot of difference, but this is without adding the color: HELP

You could also do it this way:


--- Code: ---
[url=http://forums.poz.com/index.php?action=help][b]HELP[/b][/url]


--- End code ---

HELP

Or you could make it different colors, depending on your mood.


--- Code: ---
[url=http://forums.poz.com/index.php?action=help][color=green]HELP[/color][/url]

[url=http://forums.poz.com/index.php?action=help][color=red]HELP[/color][/url]

[url=http://forums.poz.com/index.php?action=help][color=purple]HELP[/color][/url]

[url=http://forums.poz.com/index.php?action=help][color=pink][b]HELP[/b][/color][/url]


--- End code ---

HELP

HELP - notice I also added in bold on the pink link to make it stand out more with the lighter colour. It's still hard to see, but not as hard if I hadn't done that.


Get the pictar?

Oh, and btw, you can also see how code was used in a person's post by clicking on the quote button. You'll see the code they used in your reply box.

Thanks Ann!
That was extremely helpful.
I will have to digest it fully after I get more done on this online business expansion task I am working on..... it will actually be useful for some of the website mock-ups I have to do as part of the task.

HTML is all new to me - but something I need to know ---- not for any other reason than because I just really should know it.  I have put it off far too long, and now is as good a time as any.

Thanks again!

I had also wondered how you name a URL, as many will do with "linky" or "see here." 

Something has been up with my laptop lately, but only with this site.  I can right click copy for a URL, but cannot right click paste.  I have to do Control "V" to paste.  Weird.  It's just with this site, but I'm sure it is my old laptop that needs replaced.
