To quote an external source you use the tags

[ ex ]here is the quote material.[ /ex ]

Only leave out the spaces between the brackets and the text.

You can also include true hyperlinks using the [url] tag and change what a link says. Very handy for those loooooong news links when posting them. Just use the following format:

[url=http://www.abovetopsecret.com]Click here to visit Above Top Secret [url]

This will produce a hyperlink like this: Click here to visit Above Top Secret within the post you are making.


[url=http://www.abovetopsecret.com]Click here to visit Above Top Secret [url]

notice it doesnt have the / on the last [url] well this was causing me complications, then i threw in the / because i learned it makes external quotes work , and it actually worked. i dont know if this needs to be changed, should anyone fix it or is it right?


No. It's just a typo which I'm sure will be corrected by the Handbook wizard as soon as feasibly possible.

The correct BBcode is,
[url=http://www.abovetopsecret.com]Click here to visit Above Top Secret [/url]

Which will appear on the boards as follows,
Click here to visit Above Top Secret

Hope this helps to eliminate any confusion.

i actually figured it out myself, but lots of thanks for all the help. you guys rule.

i just sent a complain about this problem , dont think im crying, i just thought it might need some attention.

peace

oh yeah i sent the complaint right before the last 3 mods replied on this thread, if i would have seen the post from 12m8keall2c i would have realized the problem has been brought to someones attention and the complaint would never have been sent.

or maybe you guys read the complains really really really fast.
