I used to know this but forgot.. how do you embed a link title ( or any words) into a URL, so when you post it it shows the title or words instead of the url?

Either click on the little globe on the format panel above the posting box or use the following code:

[ url=http://website addy here]TEXT HERE[/url]

Take out the space after the first bracket

Geez its been a while. I believe its blahblah

GOD I HATE SATELLITE

Anyways Thought you meant actual HTML

I typed < link href = " link.com " > blah blah < /link > Minus all those spaces..

Didnt realize you meant BBCode.

Glad to see alot of people helping.

Mod's - great reply, fast also (and I'm not being funny - so don't hit me!)

I guess the OP answered some of my questions. I had bookmarked an ATS page but lost it when I uninstalled the firefox beta 4 and nuked the bookmarks (yeah, stupid hey) Anyone got the link? I Think "Loam" posted it.

Any help Mods??
