    Link Morphing

    If I wanted to post a link, it would be a big long Url, but some people wot are more cleverer than me are able to change this Url to a simple message or word - the word is usually here and that word becomes the link.

    What gives?

    Ok I'll try -

    http://teakdoor.com/thailand-and-asi...ten-death.html (Pattaya - Walking Street - tourist beaten to death by Thais)

    Hasn't worked - I don't want a long thing, just to be able to condense it into a single word.

    I click on the little globe icon between the 'A' and the picture URL option and it makes no difference... I need instructions, or even better - a link to instructions.

    internal stuff on the forum comes under our SEO software, so those will always be longish.

    That shouldn't be necessary - you're making me look silly DD.

    Come on, you must know what I mean - you can do it on other forums.

    Baud Hai is reading this - he'll know what I'm talking about.

    Another way of doing it (with external links) is to highlight the text (for example "Here") and then click on the insert-link icon (the blue globe), next to the insert-img icon.
