Okay, I cannot seem t find the answer in the help section, but how do you post a link in the forums?  I want to offer up books with a direct link, rather than just listing them, but I cannot figure it out!  It's driving me crazy!!!!!

 

HELP!!!!!

To post a link that shows up as the word "Link" just copy it and paste it into your post. Like this: http://www.cnn.com (it's to CNN)

To post a link that is the name of the link, type in what you want, for instance; Robyn Carr's Whispering Rock : copy the link, select the words (in this example, Whispering Rock) then click on the little chain-link icon (4th from the right on my screen, right above this text box you type into) and paste the link into the box.

So you have two ways - one is just paste the link right into the text and it shows up as the word "link" or select the words you want to show as the link, click the link icon and paste in the link.

if you want to post a PBS link to a book, the easiest way to do it is to have the book on one of your lists - reminder, TBR, or books read, and just copy that link from there and paste it into your forum window.

you can also do it from a search screen, but then you have to be sure you got the right ISBN if there is more than one in the system.  you can also do the same thing from an amazon search window (and probably from other places as well).
