How to post a short hyperlink



I cannot say what inspired me to post instructions about hyperlinks without breaking the KF rule about not revealing u2u content. ;)

But, if anyone wants to know--

Instead of using the "quick reply" box for typing a reply, click on the "New Reply" button which appears just under the last post in the topic, toward the right. This will take you to a KF reply page. Then, you will see a square button above the posting box with a picture of the earth and what I presume to be two little computers, 5th from the left, which is a reminder of the World Wide Web. Click on this, and you will be prompted to type in what you want to appear as text where the link will be in your post. The next prompt will ask for the actual link (the URL) in its entirety. I like to copy the text of the link from the URL in my browser before I click on the button, so I can just paste it in when asked by the prompt.

Besides the reply page, the button for posting a hyperlink also appears in the opening page for composing a post to start a new topic. smokin:

PS A person could use the TEST forum to try it out, to establish success before using it elsewhere.:)

Tiny URL coupled with the "insert hyperlink button" has NEVER failed me here.

:D
