How do I make links I paste into my forum replies clickable?! Seems like they used to just automatically be links, now they're just text that require people to cut & paste. I know I don't bother doing that. How do I make them clickable?

  • Hi ErinMarie123,

    When you create a post or message, you have a text edit toolbar at the top of the text box. In that section, you should see a button with a chain icon.

    Here's how to create a link in your message:

    Highlight the text you want to make a hyperlink of.
    Click on the chain icon.
    Type in the URL to the website. You can also copy and paste the web address into this field.
    When you are finished, click 'Insert'.
