Forum: How to Make Text Links
Directions on how to make a link show up as text instead of http://www.immortalgeisha.com/ig_bb/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=14018 on the forums. This is useful because one of the forum upgrades automatically shortened internal links (to other threads), but if the post was then edited, the link would break. To get around this, it's easiest to just post the link so that it shows up as text.
1) When you edit, make sure you copy the link before you go back in and edit and paste it in place again, or
2) Put your long link behind some text. All you have to do is follow this format: [url=http://www.yourlonglinkhere.com]Whatever text you want the link to show up as goes here[/url]. It will then show up as a link on the forum, in pink text.
Then, even if you edit, your long link stays intact!!
