I have pasted the pathname below and it comes up: your search-http://images.trademe.co.nz/photoserver/85/74282385_full.jpg. - did not match any documents.
How do I 'break' it up so I can match or get results? Please, use simple English if explained. Very hard for me to understand the computer language. Thanks in advance. (I have come across these pathways but could never 'open them')

I'm going to move you to Windows Vista
Can you clarify your problem a little more? Are you copy/pasting the link to your address bar and you're being redirected? Is this the only site that does this?
I tried your link and the picture of a flower came up

The link works for me and shows a picture of a while flower with a yellow/orange center.

At one point I was able to get a home page for what looked to be a trading service ( http://www.trademe.co.nz/ ) - which leads me to believe that you can't search their directories without being a member there AND being granted access to directly access the directories (rather than going through the listings).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Hello garmanma & usasma, I clicked on the link above(my post) and it worked(first time). I did see flower as mentioned by you both above. It doesn't have that 'bold link' where pointer turns into a hand in the 'trade service' posts. My question above is how I see link(not bold). http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4899.html. I just pasted this one to give you an example of what it looks like in 'trading service'. I can't 'see' how to turn link into 'bold' and blue in color. Thanking you again.

Just posted my #4 and saw it has turned 'bold & blue'. That is how it should be, but not 'trade service'. That's why I copy/paste it to title bar to open? But new window shows plenty of other sites which I cannot navigate?

To have the link: www.Xiaourl.com become an "active" link (change colors) you need to write it in HTML code
Do you see the tabs above the message box in which you are writing? B, i, u? Click on the fourth one and enter the address and click OK, then in the next box, type in whatever you want it to say onscreen

www.Xiaourl.com
write whatever you want

Is this what you mean?

I'm sorry if I'm 'thick' to understand. The B, I, U you mentioned are bold, italics, underline and the fourth will be the Text Formatting? I've added a post below from a site I visited. As of now, it isn't active. As soon as I click Add Reply box below, in next window, it turns active. Looking at post below while inactive, how do I turn it active at site I see it, like TradeMe? Can you visit it and look at a post which has web address and 'how do you turn it active' Thanks again.

I find a good little tool to check your system (to keep it running fine) is Dial-a-fix http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4899.html. Handy

Before you answer, I visit site again and browse for what I was asking here. What I did after finding this post was: highlight, right click and click on Search Google for "http://www.major..." and couldn't see it then(seems to disappear). Scrolling upwards, there it was in the 'tab bar'. I clicked it and a new page opens. Clicked again and it then showed me what I have been searching all this times! Thank you. I still couldn't understand or follow your instructions, but, hey, I have enjoyed myself. Cheers.

When you are writing a web address in a message, it will not be active and you cannot click on the link, until you select Add Reply
