Apologies if this is covered elsewhere - I couldn't find it having read through the various how to posts.
I notice instead of giving long links to other posts some posters are able to abreviate it witha one word or a descriptive link. Can you please advise how this is done?
Thanks

This is probably the easiest place to pick up the info.

There is a thread, here, but I know how to do it and still find some of that thread confusing!?!?!

[url.=www.askaboutmoney.com]A great website I know[/.url]

Without the "."s in red would read A great website I know.

In the body of your post first type the word or phrase you want to use as the link, highlight it, then open the "insert link" button, type in the info (i.e. web address etc) and you're done.

You can do the same in emails and Word documents which makes them much more readable. Especially if you are linking to a page within a site, rather than to a site.
