    When posting a link, how does one change the name/appearance of the link to something more descriptive?

    ex.- link is: www.blahblahblah/guitarmodels/modelxyz

    change to appear in thread as: cool guitar

    Thanks!!!!

    Ok, I see you did it but I'm missing the "How To" ;)

    I'm asking how. I didn't actually do it in the example, it was just meant to explain my question.

    I see others doing this, so it must be possible.

    Awesome- I understand now. You first enter the text as you want it to ultimately read/display, and then assign the link to it.
    Thanks for the help! Mojo sent your way.....

    Cool Forum
