rowal5555 Hello.

Hmm usually if someone posts a link they explain where the link is to. If you would like to know how to name a link tho.. all you do is when making a reply to a thread.. select and copy the link you want from the address field. Then when you go back to the reply page click the insert link button. A window will come up where you enter the url/link. Paste the url you copied there, then click ok. Then a window will pop up where you name the link. Add the name you would like then click ok and it adds the whole url tag to your post. I hope I explained ok and it makes sense. lol

Hello PANDY. Thanks very much, that's exactly what I needed.

There must be 1000's of little tricks in Windows that others like me who plod along on their own don't know, so this a great forum to get useful stuff aired.

Thanks again. Cheers

This will work in any browser as far as I know.

This is a feature of the forum software and it provides for naming links like this:

http://www.google.com/


This is the same link with the text inserted


And this is how the code looks:
[url=http://www.google.com/]This is the same link with the text inserted[/url]

Generally it's browser independent (any browser will work with it).
