Even we "technical illiterates" can figure this stuff out eventually (referring, of course, only to myself- no presumptions about you :D )

Now, if I could only figure out how to insert a link with my words substituted for the URL, like when people say "See link here", and the word "here" is the actual link.

Anyone? A little help here?

Opening bracket followed by url followed by the equal sign followed by the full url of your link followed by a closing bracket. Then type some descriptive words followed by an opening bracket followed by a slash, url and finally a closing bracket.

Here is an example. Isthmus forum

Hit quote to see how I did it.

And if you put

Code: Select all

[code]something[/code]
tags around something, you can see the mark-up as well.

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.thedailypage.com/forum/]Isthmus forum[/url]


Most educational thread hijack ever!

Before we close the brackets on this hijack, could someone please show me how to insert a picture into a message? I'm usually pretty tech-literate but that one's got me stopped.

Use the tag img (add a slash just before img with the last tag). Between the tags, copy and paste the full url of a jpg or gif.

Here are some examples. Hit quote to see exactly how I did it.
