View Full Version : How do you convert a web link to say "click here"?

09-06-2008, 12:33 PM
I often get replies from you guys about web links, but instead of the full web address, it just says "click" (in blue underlined writing) and then when I click on the word, it goes to the web page. How do you do that? Can somone please explain in easy to understand language. I have XP, us Firefox and Outlook Express. Thanks..

When replying see the icons that appear at the top, next to your font choices.
Hover the mouse over them.
See the one that says Insert Link?

You type your word, then highlight it and click that Link icon.
It asks for the URL.

Then OK it and voila.

It's called hyperlinking.

In the forum, you select the text you want to be 'underlined' and then click the Hyperlink (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/hyperlink.JPG) button. Then paste the URL of the website that you want to link to (copy and paste the URL from the address bar of the web browser is normally the easiest way).

Similar thing in OE, insert/hyperlink, then type or paste in whatever it is you want to link to.

Or you can do it like this:
[url=http://google.com/]Click here for Google[/url]
