Posting hyperlinks--how to?

Hey, how do I post a one or two word hyperlink so everyone doesn't need to see the whole address like this? http://www.advrider.com/forums/newth...=newthread&f=8

Please explain in dumbass-friendly language

Thanks

Copy the link, come here and quote, or click, new reply. Then click on this symbol , above, and a box will appear with this "http://" highlighted. Paste your link making sure you don't De-highlight the "http://" or else you'll have two "http://http://" and it won't work, then paste. Then click OK.

Like so

No. Of course not like that. Could you explain how to turn the link into text, like you did using the word so?

You need to highlight the words you want to be links before using the symbol.

You also have an extra http:// in your example above.
