Shortening a link(30 posts)
Here I go again: (a href="X")Y(/a) Now because of the crummy system here, you have to substitute ( by < and ) by >, X is where you paste the URL and Y is the name you want to give this link. I hope I have confused you completely now.
Edit: Scott did it smarter and beat me to it.
billbonza, let's try it slowly: In your text,let's say it is "I want to post a LINK" you do the following: Instead of LINK, you put this sequence in (best orient yourself with Scott's posting - easier to read than mine). After the first ", you paste the link followed by the second ". Then after the >, you put LINK (this is just for our example) and finish with /a>. Now LINK will appear instead of the URL - after you posted it.
alt+0160 no good either. but it doesnt matter. try http://www.sillysot.com/ its very good. i reduced the graphic intensity-if thats the right phrase- of the screen and disabled a few start up programes to make the pc boot faster with vista. maybe that has something to do with it. so there you have it.. if your rubbish on your computer just download an app that will do it for you ; )
I think you need to use the Numpad for Alt+255 to work. I tried on my laptop and it didn't work (since I don't have a Numpad). It worked on my desktop when I used the Numpad to enter 255.
