Hi-

Here's a question I haven't been able to find the answer to....

How do you add linked text to your messages or signature?

Thanks to anyone who can help me with this:)

There's a couple of ways to do it, Heidi.

Number 1: Go to the page you would like to 'link'. Copy the URL, and paste, like this http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=103997

I linked the address for this page, probably should have done something else. That one creates the 'link' link.

Number 2: Go to the page you would like to link (I'll choose some other page) copy the URL, now see the little chain link in the text line on the 'Post a Reply' box? You'll use this. I type in the text I want to use

Another way to create a link

Highlight it, click on the chain, in the box that comes up I use Control + V to paste in the URL box.
