I know there is an Insert/Edit link icon but whenever I try and do it - I cannot figure out how to change the title.  For instance, normally if I paste in a link - it just shows up in my post as "Link" and I want it to show as "Title of Book".  Can someone enlighten me about this please?  Thank you!

Well I can never get the word Link instead of the whole URL lol!.  But the way to post a book link, if you have it in one of your lists, just look it up there and copy the title, then go to where you want it and paste it. That works good.

All I do is type the word or book title, then highlight it, click on the insert link button and past the link and it should turn your title blue.

Hope that helps

I do it the way Ashley does it and it works.  My problem is I can link only one item at a time. So If you posting to a thread with your link, you have to save your post, look up another book, insert it etc.  How do ya'll do mulitple links?

How do ya'll do mulitple links?

I use Firefox as my browser and use multiple tabs  which means one browser window in each tab. One tab has my reply, other tabs have the pages I need to copy links from. This also works with Internet Explorer 8 - use ctrl-T to open a new tab in Windows; in Mac (firefox only - I don't use IE on my mac) it's a slightly different keyboard combination, but you can look under File for Open New Tab.
