type the text you want to have the URL

Then select the text you want to have the URL


Then hit the link button above (2d left, bottom row) and you get

Then {url}select{/url} the text you want to have the URL

where the {url} tags have the real brackets



Go to the first {url} tag and insert the hyperlink w/ a leading "="

{url=http://thingsSmuckCantFigureOut.com}this is how you link things{/url}

And the URL is there
The first {url} tag opens the text you want linked, the second {/url} tag closes it

if you just paste in a URL, the board will parse it for you
