How to make a clicky link [In reply to] Can't Post

1) Go to the page you want to link to and copy (Edit->Copy) the web address in your browser.

2) Begin typing your new post up through the words you want the user to be able to click on.

3) Select the words you want the user to be click on, then hit the little button on the toolbar in the post that looks like a series of 3 chain links (in my browser, it is the very right-most icon on the toolbar right above where I'm typing now.

4) A little window will pop up. Paste the web address from Step #1 into that window* and hit "submit".

5) Submit your post and then sit back and enjoy both a soothing beverage and the feeling of being a nearly all-powerful web guru.

*A caution on step 4 - the window that pops up comes preloaded with the "http://" that nearly all web addresses start with. The most common mistake I see is that people tend to paste the web address directly after this, resulting in an address that looks like "http://http://coolpage.com" and that will work for exactly no one. You have to either delete the pre-loaded http:// or not include it when you copy the address in step 1.

Happy linking!

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn.
