How do I post a link so that it doesn't show the whole address - just a label? Some of these addresses are pretty long.

Its real easy to do :)

Just put a [ and the letters url= in front of your link, then an opposite ] then the text you want to appear, then the letters [/url]

Like this:

1) [url =

2) paste your link

3) ]

4) text you want to see, like HERE for instance

5) [/url]


Only put it all together, with no spaces. If you do it right it looks like this:

Roadie posted a tutorial a while back: Posting Links.

It should look like this: [XXX=http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,2487.0.html]Posting Links[/XXX] except you need to replace the XXX with url.

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.
