Title: Hyperlinks/Embedded links?
Post by: EeeJay on November 20, 2007, 08:48:09 PM
Tended to use these a lot on the old forum, to save congesting the page layout with long URLs.

Anyone know how they work (or indeed if they work) on here?

They're a little more work here...

[~url="insert url here"]insert text here[/url]

...remove the tilde and it looks like this...

insert text here (http://"insert url here")

I wondered the same. Any chance of an English translation though?

That seems to do the trick. I didn't know what a ~ was called.
duuuuuuuh! I think I'm with it now though.

You had the http:// in twice.   I've corrected the first two.  If you edit your post you will see the difference.

Thanks Theo, not quite sure how that happened problem is now that the links go somewhere unexpected using the links as above but work fine in the post below ???

Got it ;D  I'd copied the ="insert url here" and put the link between the inverted commas.  The first inverted comma was replaced (automatically it would seem) with the additional http bit and the second one stopped the link going to the correct place.

Ain't this modern technology great!!

Thanks again Theo.
