Can anybody tell me how I can create a link from my PBS site to other sites?

I'm trying to picture what you are trying to do.  Are you wanting to put links to other sites in your PBS profile?

Yeah, I don't get what you want to do either.

I think what you are asking for is the HTML code to make links. There is a thread in CMT titled How To Post A Link. This has both the method to make a link in a post and the method to make a link in a PM or from a mobile. One of these two methods should work, depending on if you have the editing options or not.

What you can't do is link to a commercial site, or to another book swap site.

Highlight the text to link.  Click the little globe with a chain on the toolbar above.  Insert address of page you wish to link.  Click OK.

That only works when the edit formatting box shows up.  We need to use html coding where the edit options do not show up.   Such as our bookshelf header.

Which is why it would be helpful to understand what Ron is attempting to do.  Different methods for links in different locations.
