Sorry to get off topic again, but Ron, how do you add a hyperlink to a word or group of words?  I manage four websites, but for the life of me, can't make it work here on this forum.  Thanks.   :help
Hi gophoenix,

Actually it is quite easy.  Do as you would normally do using the "Insert Hyperlink" button ("globe with document" button above).  Finish your post or reply and "post it".

THEN......

Edit the post.  Note the string of the link is listed twice.  The second listing is what you replace with whatever text you want it to say.  Just be careful not to delete the brackets around the path name.  Then hit the "save" button to re-post it with your edits.

Go back to one of your earlier posts or replies with a hyperlink and give it a try.

Just a thought about extra seating when parked.  Our 2008 2350 had a swivel passenger seat, when we ordered our 20012 2551 we kept the passenger swivel and added a driver seat swivel.  This gave us an extra seat for company and a sense of openness in the cab area. 

One drawback is that the factory installed swivel does not accept power seats. 

Here is a picture of the cab area with seats swiveled and ready for use.

 I would very much like the possibility of having both seats swivel around for seating.  As you mentioned "the factory installed swivel does not accept power seats", does anyone know if there is any other type of swivel that could be used for a powered driver's seat?   Just luv this forum Ö thanks to everyone for the great ideas !!   tymote

Just to be clear about the driver seat swiveling.  You need a slideout behind the driver seat.  A few of us don't have a slideout there.  The dinette would prevent a practical application of a swivel driver seat.

Try this link to learn how to do all sorts of clever things using BB code:




BB Code Link



If you just want to know how to do a descriptive text link, it's just like in html except you are wrapping it in bbcode instead of html syntax:

Code: [Select]

On a Windows-PC, I don't know about a Mac......Each time anyone uses the hyperlink button and pastes in the link, then posts, then edits their post, the link is listed twice.  The first link must remain untampered.  The second occurence is the text you can replace with whatever you'd like it to say.  Try it.

Ron, appreciate the explanation, but for whatever reason, I couldn't get it to work when trying to edit an existing post. >( Printed it and will try on a new post later.
I remember very few of the things that Iíve spent money to buy, but I remember all of the places that Iíve spent money to see.
