When making a link....

how do you get it to show up as "click here" or "whatever word you choose" instead of the full http://www.randomwebsite.com?

  • Good! Glad you figured it out!

    Did anyone happen to notice that I rickrolled you with my link?

  • Click full editor, type what you want to say, then click and drag with your mouse to highlight the words you want to use for the link. While it's still highlighted, click the link button (looks kind of like a chain or a paperclip) and you'll get a pop-up window to paste in your link address. Doesn't work on most phones, only computers.

  • Using full editor, highlight the word you want to make "click-here", then use the link button, and finally, copy and paste link.

  • Select "use full-text" located at the top of the answer box.  Copy and paste the web address and then click on the "Insert/edit link" next to the "check spelling" box.  Paste into the "link url" box and then click on "insert".

  • WELL, that's what I always do, but the words I type into "info" never show up. It always just posts the link. Thanks, anyway!

  • Sorry, didn't mean to post so fast. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page I linked, NotPanicking provided an answer in which she made her link say "What Is A Troll"? instead of http://blahblahblah.com. OP, are you trying to find out how she did that? Is that your question?
