Links In Messaging Boards!

Postby TheOldSoldier » Thu Aug 21, 2014 1:43 pm

Just curious about certain type of links. How do you a link into a word. Such as I see Rejected put something on Vetus, with the work link, to a screenshot, rather than putting the web address., And sometimes Pace will say, please click here. With the shortcut inside the word here. I see on some message boards, and Word. You can turn a word into a hyperlink? But how do you do it, on a website?

Basically you can add a link (or hyperlink) at anything you want. From a single letter to a word, phrase, image or video file etc. The way you do it depends on the code (HTML, php etc) cause they have minor differencies.
Regarding our forum, it's quite easy. All you have to do is use the URL button.

For example, let's say you want to create a hyperlink for redirecting someone to our Downloads page.
We'll use the phrase: "Download from here!" (the hyperlink will be set to the word "here!")

Type the phrase, then highlight the desired word with your mouse and click on the URL button.
The result should look like this:

Code: Select all
Download from[url]here![/url]

Of course, you can manually type the text between the URL tags, but I find it faster to finish typing the phrase first, then highlight what I want for a hyperlink.

Now copy the link you want to redirect the reader at and add it inside the opening tag like this:

Code: Select all
Download from[url=http://www.agb-clan.com/downloads.html]here![/url]

Important: Don't forget to type the the equation symbol before the web address. And keep your tag brackets "at one piece". If you accidentaly erase one, it'll look quite messy. :D

When you're done, submit your post and the result will look like this:

Download from here!

That's it. Easy, right? :P

Well, there's a little button that's called "Quote" next to any post, click on it, and you'll find out the exact codes to make it work.
Click here to find how its done.

هل تحممت بعطره وتنشفت بنور
وشربت الفجر خمراً من كؤوس من أثير

How about a step-by-step tutorial for:
1. posting a screen-shot of a game score?
2. How to post a YouTube video to forum?
3. And how to add a signature to my posts?

Please, and thank you in advance!
