    I see folks use "here" (as an example) as the place to click for a link instead of the long URL.
    How do you do that?

    When you type it it looks like this [U R L="www.google.com"] www. google .com [/URL ]

    just without the spaces.

    The second "www.google.com" is normally highlighted, whatever text you put in between the brackets will be what shows up.

    Makes sense?


    p.s. this html is very user friendly and I had to TRY to mess that code up to make it not work.

    Type whatever word(s) you want to be the link,highlight your selection, click the link button, type your URL into the entry box that pops up. And you're linked!

    I find it far easier to highlight the word or words you want to be the hyperlink, and then click the little globe-with-chain-link icon above the text box, then type or paste your link in the box that pops up, just like Sean said above that I somehow missed before typing this.
