Do links work in Requestor Conditions?  I cannot click the links in my own Requestor Conditions.  I wonder if the sender will be able to click these links:

This is a requester condition for one specific book (Raising Financially Fit Kids :: Joline Godfrey).  My granddaughter is on the cover.  Though, there are other versions (same ISBN) with different artwork.  Here’s a link to a Picture-of-my- granddaughter-on-the-Cover.  Please insure that the cover picture matches this picture.  It will be worthless to me if it's not my granddaughter's picture.  Thanks.  I'm going to get her to autograph this copy :)

In case the link to the picture doesn't work here's a URL address you can cut-n-paste into your browser:

No, they will have to cut-n-paste if they want to use the links. Good luck!

There's a way to post links in pm's, would that method work?

You can do links in PMs? I've never been able to. How is such a thing accomplished?

Directions as shared with me by Mary:

[a href="http://www.magneticbookmark.com/productinfo.cfm"]link[/a]

1. Type the above into whatever you use to do word processing.
2. Change the web address between quotation marks to whatever you're going to link to.
3. Copy and paste to your PM
4. Change all [] (NOTE there's 4) to < >

Send your PM.

Denise is correct - HTML code.   You can also use bold, underline or italize a word.  There is more, but this is all I use. 


Please do not send this book.  In your PM you would type  Please <b><u>do not</b></u> send this book.  .

You need to remember the opening brackets < > and closing </> or it will not work and will truncate.  To test send a PM to yourself.    Sorry to hijack the thread.

bold  <b>  </b>

underline <u>  </u>

italics <i>   </i>

I didn't know that those windows supported HTML ... I thought they were plain text. Cool ... thanks!
