    Default How do you rename hyperlinks?

    Howdy

    I notice it quite a lot and have always wondered how you do it

    eg http://pressf1.co.nz shortened to pressf1 (but still hyperlinked)

    cheers

    Select the text you wish to hyperlink, then select this button and insert your address.

    You need to do more than just click the "Insert Link" button.
    After you paste/type in your URL, it will give you some text along the lines of:
    [ URL="http://pressf1.co.nz/"]http://pressf1.co.nz/[/URL ]

    You need to change the part in between ] & [/URL] to the text you want displayed. In this example, change http://pressf1.co.nz/ to pressf1, like so:

    [ URL="http://pressf1.co.nz/"]pressf1[/URL ] and it will end up like this:
    pressf1

    If you read what I said a little more carefully this was already covered

    Actually, I could probably re-word what I said:
    'Highlight the text you wish to hyperlink then...'
