How do I make a link look like just a word, instead of a really long web address?

When you post a comment you can select the "URL" button just above the "Font Size" selector and you will get a pop-up asking for the text you want to display (your one word) and then for the full URL you are providing the link for.

You can type the whole thing out in the "quick respond" box too but try it using the regular "Reply" button and look at the formatting first. Wink

Use the "Reply" box in any discussion to set up the URL as a plain language message. Now highlight the whole shebang, including all code. Use the CTRL C combination to copy it. No go to the signature option in you profile and use CTRL V to paste it in.

Additionally, you can use color and other font effects at this time - just be sure all code is highlighted before copying.

Here, Chemist, Is this is more like what you had in mind:

Katya's Art

Just copy-and-paste this code into your signature box
Code:[URL=http://www.zazzle.com/contributors/products/gallery/browse_results.asp?cid=238162673881520398]Katya's Art[/URL]

or reply back here if you're still not getting what you want.
