Here

Type your word 'Here', highlight it and click on the button that's got an image of a world and chain on it...paste the link into the pop up box and click ok.

What I would like to see is the words that do have links embedded changed to a different colour as sometimes they can be very difficult to find. :P

You can manually change the color. I agree, the regular link does not stand out. Here is the same link once again.

Re: How do i embed a link

Hi Palms,

This forum like most, uses BB Code to generate its "effects".

BBCode Tutorial

(url=http://www.createforum.com/support/viewtopic.php?t=2470)(b)(color=blue)BBCode Tutorial(/color)(/b)(/url)

Please note: The writer of that tutorial has used round brackets to avoid the text being converted by the BBCode interpreter, as I have done to illustrate the code I used to create the link.

In practice you use square brackets [] to enclose the code "tabs".

If you want to play around with BB Coding, try using FASS which is a free standing editor, allowing you to play to your hearts content.

Any questions just PM me.

I was going to mention that to avoid the round brackets you can wrap around Code tags, however it does not work here. PHP Code tags will, though:
