Can anyone tell me how to add the blue link to a book that I want to refer to in a post that I am writing up for book bazaar?  Your help would really be appreciated.

Find the page with the book information you want and copy the URL from the top of the browser window. (The http:// etc part.)

Type the name of the book into your message box here on the forums and then highlight it. In the blue toolbar above the message box, on the right side, is an icon that looks like a couple links of a chain. (Fourth from the right.) Click that, and a box will appear where you can paste the URL you want to link to.

Hope that helps! :-)

Thanks Janelle.   I tried it and don't think its working.  Is there a way to test it besides posting it here?

Another way that is more time consuming is:

Type your book title in your post, highlight it, click on the link on your toolbar then type www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/the ISBN-title of the book

Aw, give it a shot! I don't think you can click on it while it's still in your message text box and have it work, you have to post it for it to be clickable.

Yes Janelle, I hope the order arrived.

Thanks everyone for the help with this it will make my book bazaar post much better. I have several heavy computer programing books that I think I'll offer there and see how it goes.  I put some on Amazon and they sold right away.  Thanks to the nice person who pm'd me also.
