How To Add A Link To A Website, In Your Post Or Reply

Here is a simple example on how to add a "Clicky" orange link into a post or reply that you are writing, and how to change the name of the link in your post.  In the instructions below, I had to substitute These [ ] for these ( ) just so I could post it without it taking effect.

The example below makes an orange text "Clicky" called "HERE" to the Phoenix Cruiser main page.

- While creating a post or reply, first click in your message, where you want the link to go, so click to place your cursor in just the right place.
- Then click on the icon in the banner above the editor that has a globe and a sheet of folded paper in front of it.  It is called "Insert Hyperlink"
- It adds this text to where your cursor is in your message:   (url)(/url)
- Copy the link from the top banner:  http://www.phoenixusarv.com and paste it in between as shown to look like this: (url)http://www.phoenixusarv.com(/url)
- You can add words before and after the string of text.  Here is one example:  Check out Phoenix Cruisers by clicking (url)http://www.phoenixusarv.com(/url), then scroll down to see the different floor plans.
- Then post the message and immediately modify it to get the full messy string of text that looks like this:   (url=http://www.phoenixusarv.com)http://www.phoenixusarv.com(/url)
- Then replace the duplicated string of text to the right with what you want it to say like this:  (url=http://www.phoenixusarv.com)HERE(/url)
- Post your message again.

Your sentence will read like this:  Check out Phoenix Cruisers by clicking HERE, then scroll down to see the different floorplans.

Thanks Ron.  My confusion was that when I pasted the link it did not turn orange until the reply was posted. Will try your instructions next time.
