Link in New Topic

Specs: Windows XP, 1.024.00
Well here i am again JAM and i hope not to annoy like before(clickable link). Now i`ve mastered the link and renaming in replying in posts but now i decided to go into "new topic". But when i get the image from image shack and go to the post message area there`s no submit follow up only post message and no link. I`ve edited like i did in reply but isn`t there someway to preview the thing in "new topic" and see the link? Hope you can help again. Terry

That's because it's the original post. Did you notice the 5 choices just above the text box where it says Message: ?

Click the one that looks like a ball & chain (4th one from the left). When you click it, you get this:

<a h ref="">< /a>

(I had to add spaces to get the above to show)

To make a link & name it, do this:

<a h ref="place http: address here">rename link here< /a>

In other words, the web address goes between the " " & the link name goes between the > <

I just realized that those buttons are at the top of the reply box too!

Here's an example. I get a lot of good astronomy pics from the NASA website & use them for wallpaper. To post the current pic I'm using, I just have to click on the "ball & chain", then insert the web address between the " " & insert the name I want to use between the > <

Here's how it would look:

(once again, I had to put spaces in so the text would show)

<a h ref="">My Current Wallpaper< /a>

And here's the finished product:

My Current Wallpaper

Thank You Jam i found out how to preview-edit ok-spaces i understand now what you meant. Also i was deleting one little parenthesis in the edit when it should be left in. Only four responses this time how about that. Cheers-Terry

Glad you're getting the hang of it. I hope I wasn't too harsh in the other thread but I was getting frustrated.

If I hadn't thrown in the spaces, the examples I was trying to show would have converted to links. Derek had a good idea too...rather than using > & <, he substituted } & { so the text wouldn't convert to links.

So are you ready for more? I'll use Derek's method & see how it goes. In the examples below, all you'll have to do is copy/paste, then replace all the { & } with < & >

Let's say you wanna make a word or phrase BOLD. Here's what you'd have to do:

{b}Make it BOLD{/b}

If you want italics:

{i}Make it ITALICS{/i}

If you want to strike something out:

{s}Strike it OUT{/s}

If you want to color the font, do this:

{font color=red}Make it RED{/font}

If you want to increase the size of the font:

{font size=5}Make it BIG{/font}

And you can do combinations:

WOOHOO! Combinations!!
