Posting Custom Labels for Links- ie "Click Here"
« on: July 30, 2009, 04:30:43 AM »
What script do we need to use in order to post links with our own labels?

In other words, how can we turn this:
www.*onlyanexample.com  

into this:
CLICK ME


Thanks ;)

Follow my simply script example I've been using on this site for a while here:

Download:


Click: HERE to get the clip.


Most other forums follow this standard WITHOUT having to "do it yourself" - it's built-in to the software - apprently not on this forum, so far as I can see, so I wrote my own.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you - but making links here is built in. 

You just pick you link (http//www.whatever.com)  create teh text you want - like "CLICK ME"  and you can bold or color it - but do that BEFORE you create the link (just fussy sometimes) "CLICK ME"  THEN highlight that text - click on the world icon above - and insert the URL in the dialog box.

                "CLICK ME REALLY"

Well, golly gee, sargeant Carter! Most forum software accomplishes it differently, and I tried a only a few diffent ways here and gave up - had an example on hand that I'd copy/paste then change. Of course, now I'm a very happy camper that there really is a button to do all that for me!

Thanks for the very valuable tip. I'm definitely into neat/tidy looking posts.

Dammit! Some little tweak in the forum theme, or software seems to have happend - I've tried for ages to make certain text RED, but everytime I tried, it turned out beige I think. I can't rule out I missed something, but I always had tried to just sign a post:

V

In fact, I'm quite certain KnyeGuy's first post above - the color's weren't red but yellow - maybe my mind is going, like HAL9000 in 2010... but glad to see tat red's available, no matter how it got there. Yippie! V can be red now!

I usually have unpredictable results with the format thing-a-ma-bob. a couple of others have said so as well - but for the most part, there have been few complaints. 

go figure.

I've NO idea what the issue is-  if any.

hmmmm...  I only get the code [ url ] [ /url ]  when clicking the 'insert hyperlink' button. It doesn't prompt me with a dialog to enter a url...

thus I just get a dead link...
Possible glitch?

Possible - but I don't do "back end" stuff and MV is AWOL for a couple of days - so we'll have to wait and see if he can fix it.
