OK, say for instance you want to post a link to a picture or a website in your post. Like this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urim_and_Thummim

Only you don't want it to read like that. You don't want the entire web address to click on, you want it to say 'Urim & Thummim' instead. I've seen it done hundreds of times here but I can't figure it out.

I though that might be it. OK

First you type

[ url =

then paste the link
then after it
]
then whatever you want it to say
Then [ /url ]
Take out all the spaces in and around the brackety things ! - I have to put them in or it won't show up !, but remember to have a space before the very first [ and after the last ]

The other way with these things is to make like you are replying to a post with one in, and then you can see the codes used.

SO - pretend to reply to this, and look how this link looks.
