Hyperlinks/Embedded links?
« 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?

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.

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.
