Creating text links

Post by pennymachines »

I'm using an iPad and when typing a post I want a word to be a link. How do I attach a link like this?

The format is the same, regardless of device. Click the URL button and insert your link (URL, web address) between the URL tags you just created.

It should look something like this:

Code: Select all

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page[/url]

To make this into a text link, you have to edit it to look like this:

Code: Select all

[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page]My text link here[/url]

(If it's to a page on this site, the link opens in the existing window. If not, it opens in a new tab, depending upon browser etc.)

I'll simplify this process, if I find a way.
