adding a URL with a descriptor

Postby BethB » Tue Jul 08, 2014 9:43 pm

How do I get a link descriptor into a msg? I'm used to using the URL tag that I know from other forums. The following should result in a clickable desription of the link i.e. the address doesn't display, just the clickable descriptor. Here's my attempt but it doesn't work as expected:

[url="http://www.nealhendrickson.com/mcdougall/030700puhowdoIgainweight.htm"]How Do I Gain Weight on the McDougall Diet?[/url]

I also tried using the html tag:

<a href="http://www.nealhendrickson.com/mcdougall/030700puhowdoIgainweight.htm">How Do I Gain Weight on the McDougall Diet?</a>

Anybody know how to do this?

Just checked the phpBB site and will try without the quotes and it works!!!

Yep, those quote marks had to go. Congrats on finding the answer so soon. Things like Google search are a godsend!
