    In forum posts is there a way to have the text of a link be something other than the URL?

    When you click on the link button, it doesn’t seem to offer you a way to do that.

    I tried

    LEFT_BRACKET url=”a url here” RIGHT_BRACKET what I want the link to look like here LEFT_BRACKET SLASH url RIGHT_BRACKET

    but that didn’t work.

    Is there a way to do it that I’m missing?

    try:
    OPEN SQUARE BRACKET url CLOSE SQUARE BRACKET your link here OPEN SQUARE BRACKET SLASH url CLOSE SQUARE BRACKET

    edit: oh yes, there is an icon to do the heavy lifting, the ball overlaid with a paper clip, above the surprised smiley

    Thanks, and I know that way works, but I’m looking for a way to have the text of a link be something _other_ than the URL: the ‘what I want the link to look like here’ bit.

    I don’t think it’s possible in the forum, the auto URI linker plugin we use automatically makes any links live. It has precedence over any other linking.

    Just testing the current functionality. It looks like plain HTML, but you never know with message boards.

    Link with all three things filled in:

    
    <a href="http://www.google.com" title="This is the part in the title attribute">This is the part between the angle bracket tags</a>
    

    This is the part between the angle bracket tags

    Same link with no title attribute:

    
    <a href="http://www.google.com">This is the part between the angle bracket tags</a>
    

    This is the part between the angle bracket tags

    First link with nothing between the angle brackets:

    
    <a href="http://www.google.com" title="This is the part in the title attribute"></a>
    

    First link with no attributes, just a URL between angle brackets:

    
    <a>http://www.google.com</a>
    

    http://www.google.com

    OK, so what’s important is
    1. when you click the “link” button, the URL in the pop-up dialog. This goes into the href attribute.
    2. what’s between the angle brackets.
    And the title field in the pop-up is not important.
