If I paste a URL link into a forum post, it shows up as a blue, underlined word "Link", which someone can click and get to the link.

I've noticed (in the Bazaar in particular) that some people have links that show the titles of the books, in blue, and underlined. 

How do people get the titles to appear, rather than the word "Link"?

Thanks! Deb

when you post to the forum, there is an image in the menu above text box you're typing in.  It's the 4th one from the right and it looks like a piece of a chain link.  You click that and a popup box will show in your screen.  You can type in or cut and paste a URL link in that space.  Then hit Enter.  Then you can type in the name of the link or just link like some folks do.

Does that help?

You can also put the word in your message, highlight the word you want to link, then click the link button and put in the URL : )

I just highlight the web address, cut and paste into the text box, then I hightlight it and type the word LINK.  Every once in a while, I have to do it over, but it works great.

Thanks!  The link button was the key.  I must've accidentally clicked the little hinky to the left of all the buttons, and they were all hidden!
