zanyzombie Posted August 8, 2006 Report Share Posted August 8, 2006 This explains how to post a link that looks like this http://www.gerardbutlergals.com/forums/index.php?act=idx to look like this (GerardButler GALS) I recommend having more than one window or tab open to do this. > One window to compose your message and > One window to COPY the LINK from. FIRST WAY: > Type the word or sentence you would like to name the link in your post. > Then, highlight it. > Click on the green plus sign (Insert Link icon) that is next to the yellow smilie face. > the little window opens up. > Now, right click and "PASTE" the web page link in the empty box. > Click, "Ok", the box closes. SECOND WAY: 1. - Left click your mouse and keep it held down while dragging it over the link...it will be highlighted in blue...now, let up and right click your mouse over your highlighted text...a small box opens up > left click on COPY (a link is the same thing as a URL or Web Address) 2. - Go to your text box. 3. - Click on the > Insert Link Icon A box opens up that say's, "Script Prompt "Please enter the full URL" and the http:// is hightlighted in the box. 4. - In the white box PASTE the link in there. 5. - Then, click > OK. It now say's, "Script Prompt Please enter the title for this item" undefined is highlighted in the white box. Type in the NAME you want your link to be. Then, 6. - click > OK It will automatically post it in your message box. click on > Preview Message to view what you just did. Put your cursor/arrow over the link. It should turn into a hand. Go ahead and click on it to make sure it takes you to the correct link or web address you wanted. > And that's it. USING A PICTURE INSTEAD OF TEXT: You have to put the link to the picture - use the "Please enter the title for this item." http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q251/GB_GALS/MOD/th_imagecode.gif' alt='th_imagecode.gif'> or > Add your picture or graphic to your post. > Then, highlight the code. > Click on the green plus sign (Insert Link icon) that is next to the yellow smilie face. > the little window opens up. > Now, right click and "PASTE" the web page link in the empty box. > Click, "Ok", the box closes. > and hopefully, it worked.
