Hello :-)

 

I'm struggling to figure out how to turn a URL address link into a clickable "word"

 

Example:  in a post I would use the link button in the tool bar and get this: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/

 

I have noticed in threads instead of the entire URL address link I see (example) Microsoft

 

If I click on just the word, it takes me to the URL address.

 

I hope I make sense and would be so happy for someone to teach me how to do this! Thank you!

This is the code to use:

 

Microsoft
 

[url=http://www.microsoft.com]Microsoft[/url]

I don't know if there is a way to do it with the RTE(Rich Text Editor) I never use it. I always hand type all my BBCode.

Lets use your example of Microsoft.

The way to make it a clickable word is as follows with BBCode:

[url=http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/]Microsoft[/url]
So what you're saying codewise is: The URL is http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/ but I want that URL to be represented with the word Microsoft. Then you have the closing BBCode represented by the / tag

Each segment of the code is represented by opening->[ and closing->] brackets such as this example[identifier and command]

There is a way to do it in the RTE :)
 
For those who may want to know:
Write out the text you want to represent the URL, highlight the text with your cursor and then click this little icon: 0d4ec1179dbffefb589a7ac74fae99a0.png. Enter the URL into the URL field and press OK.
