Hooray Michael! Hyperlinks!
Nothing dementia related here! Just a forum tip!
Okay, has anyone else been trying to do hyperlinks in posts and failed miserably like me? Thanks to Michael Ellenbogan I now know how to do it and I thought I'd post it in case anyone else is stumped.
Copy/paste the link you want to put in your forum post in an email first.
Then hit enter to turn the pasted text into a hyperlink in your email.
Then copy the hyperlink into your forum post!
I just tested it and it worked!
This is how I had to do it:
Copy link from lickety's site (- use the cursor to highlight the URL, then CTRL C to copy it)
Create new email (I use gmail)- paste the link using CTRL V
Then-- there is small icon on the bottom of the email- which looks like a sideways paperclip (it's NEXT to the "attach" icon)- this may vary for different email programs?
Click on that and it will make the link a hyperlink. (you can tell when it turns to blue/purple depending on your email settings).
The cut and paste that into a forum message.
Thanks Lickety, and yes, Michael is awesome!
Ugh...now I really hate my ipad. I wish I stuck with a PC.
Way too many steps for me to do on my ipad. It would take me a good 45 minutes to try to post a link. lol!
I glad you all figured out a way though...that is awesome.
