Lately, I have noticed many un-clickable links posted here, and fixed them. I have also fielded questions via email about tips and tricks about posting on the site.
The most common confusion seems to be on how to make a weblink active, or clickable, so here's the answer:
Copy the URL from the top of your browser and enclose it within the carats < and > WITHOUT ANY SPACES. For example:
< [www.fulladdresshere.com] > WITH NO SPACES INSIDE THE CARATS.
Does anyone have any other questions about any tips and tricks on how to post here? Posting images, formatting text, underline, bold, italics, how to add your picture to your profile, how to turn your text into a clickable link like this Silly Kid Lip-synching or any other tricks you see the power-users utilize?
Bring on all the questions - and please don't be shy. Any question you have could benefit many, many other people here as well. The Mod team should be able to answer every question.
In addition, feel free to use this thread to practice any of these techniques.
It would help everyone if you could change the subject-line into a synopsis of your question, like 'Posting Images,' etc.
Formatting posts effectively will make other posters more likely to understand your argument, access the sites you reference, and respond to your posts, so please ask away...
