I know to use [u r l] [/u r l] to make a hyperlink, but how do you imbed the link in text? I.e. have the word 'here' show up in blue that, when clicked, leads to the linked site.

You make it [u r l =http://...]here[/url] to make "here" show up as a link. You can replace the words with a picture and have a picture link too.

What's easier is that you could highlight the words you want linked and press the link button and enter the url.

What you want to do is this:

[u r l=URL HERE]TEXT HERE[/url]

No spaces in the first "url" of course.

And here is how it comes out looking when you post it:

I don't think it can be explained any further, so I'll lock to prevent further duplicate answers. Ask me on my profile if you still can't do it.
