Hi,

I can't figure out how to mask URLs in my post. For instance, I want the following to work as expected:

<A HREF="http://www.myurl.com">This is a link</A>

I've tried

[url="http://www.myurl.com"]This is a link[/url]

but that doesn't seem to work for me. Help!

Thanks, I really enjoy this forum!

Hey, you are close with the second one.

Just remove the quotes from the URL and that should work.

This link will provide more info...

I must be really dense, handicap...

I don't understand how your advice is any different from what I typed in my second post...

HELP ME!

Thanks.

I figured out the problem.

You did the bbcode exactly right!

The problem is that there is a little checkbox that you can see when posting or editing that says:

Disable BBCode in this post

You have it checked. Don't! Wink

It is probably checked as the default in your profile, so anyway that should help you...
