    Hey, can't believe I don't know how this works, but when people post links say to a tutorial... and they write "Go here for instructions".. and the word "here" is actually a link to the tutorial.. how do you do that.. embed a link in a word or phrase? I feel stupid but have never been able to figure it out.

    Thanks! :)

    Well if you highlight whatever you want to be the link, then in the reply options above the text field you should see [​IMG]<<<that button, click it and add whatever url you want. Hope that helps:):)

    It's exactly what NightAngel said. Here's an example:

    [URL="http://androidforums.com"]Clickable text[/URL]

    If you put that in a post, it would show this: Clickable text

    ok.. let's try this :)

    That should be a link back to NightAngel's post.

    Or this.

    That should be a link back to Dashmarotzer's post. :)

    Thanks again, both of you!
