How to Do the Thing? (All-purpose Testing Thread)

19 May 2017 17:41

So... figured I can't be the only one who sometimes can't figure out how to manage the technical part of this forum, so I thought I'd make a thread for testing these things out.

Right, how do you make hyperlink text? Ya know, so that instead of having the link simply being like this

posting.php?mode=post&f=11 (link to this post...) it becomes a word?

[url posting.php?mode=post&f=11]like this...[/url] (except not, coz I can't figure it out.

You would use the "URL" tags on each end, with the end being normal but the beginning tag being used in this manner below.

insert text to hyperlink

Basically you replace the end bracket of the beginning tag with an "=" character and then place the bracket that you replaced at the end of the hyperlink, but before the text that you want hyperlinked. I hope that makes sense and you can see what I'm failing at explaining in my example. :D

It's easiest to see the example when you select the "Reply with Quote" function.
