    Unhappy Just wandering??

    Im just wandering how some poeple place there link, soo that you cannot see the actual link you see "CLICK HERE" and when you click on that it takes you to wherever they wanted you to go to? I get that in some of my emails too.... How do you you do that? NOt just in these forum but when i send emails too (like in yahoo)???

    It's the way they write the HTML to point to the link. Try it in this forum by using the "http://" button.

    Example:

    This is my link

    You will see the syntax in your message. Something like:

    "[" URL=http://xxx.xxx.xxx"]"This is the text"["/URL"]"

    (forget the " marks around the brackets, they are just to prevent the link being displayed again)

    Anyway, try the button for yourself and see how it works.

    Cheers,

    Well, I've never done it in AO, but I assume they just use HTML - the language that you use to make websites.

    Do that, but as BrainStop said, without the quotation marks - "

    without quotes, it'll give:

    Silkk,

    Remove all the " marks, you have 4 more left ....

    Good luck,

    BrainStop.

    PS = As for email, it might depend on the email provider. Haven't played much with it ... I'll take a look at Hotmail when I have a chance.

    For Yahoo email, do the following:

    At the bottom of your email message, check the box called "html tags allowed", then use the following structure mentionned by others already:

    This site

    When you send the message, it will show "This site" as link pointing to www.antionline.com

    Cheers,

    BrainStop
