I was wondering how the heck you make a link where the link isnt the url and it is a word like for instance a link to google:

GOOGLE     <--thats what the link looks like and goes to www.google.com instead of the URL..

if that makes any sense  Undecided Huh

Makes total sense!

Type what you want it to actually be viewed as... Google!, for instance.
Highlight it
Press the Insert Hyperlink Button
Inside the first bracket, after the URL code, type an = then paste the address

I searched for this, but couldn't find an answer, and like I said in the title - I'm totally code inept, so if someone could help me out, that would be awesome!  Smiley

I would like the links in my signature to appear as titles and not the whole link itself.  For example, my myspace link... How do I get it to just read "MySpace" and not the whole www.myspace...... ?

I know this is probably pretty basic, but any help would be appreciated!  Long live Craftster and its wonderfulness!!  Cheesy

It really isn't that "basic". I think it took me something like 6 months to figure it out.  Wink

Code:
[url=www.myspace.com/shimmers_spot]myspace[/url]

Hope that helps.  Grin If you have anymore questions, just ask.

Looking to do a personal swap for any boyish nursery print flannels! I can send polymer clay charms, purses, paper crafts, microscope slide pendant kit, and a lot more.

Just had to say, this isn't actually HTML, it's BBCode.
HTML does not work in most forum signatures. Smiley
For example, bolding in HTML is <b>Bold Text</b>
See how that doesn't work? It's actually in BBCode, which is [ b]Bold Text[ /b] (without the spaces, producing Bold Text). Smiley
I hope I didn't just confuse you more. Tongue

Not all the tags you can learn here will work, it depends what is and isn't allowed in this individual forum, but here's a guide:
