How do I use my own words in a hyperlink?

I bet this is one of those simple tech things that most people already know, and I open myself up for ridicule and scorn by asking, but...
I think it's pretty cool when people post a hyperlink with their own words underlined and written in blue. Like, "Here is the youtube I viewed on the subject ."
How do you do that?

@snood,
Ah, there's here and there is elsewhere online.

Here, you use PHP.

Code looks like this:
Code:[url=http://www.cnn.com/]stuff I saw on CNN[/url]


It will come out like this: stuff I saw on CNN

Just copy what I did and change the URL and verbiage as you prefer.

Elsewhere, you use HTML code. It's not that hard. Smile You would type:

<a href="http://www.cnn.com">stuff I saw on CNN</a>

The <a> tags are for the URL, which has to be in parentheses. The parentheses have to be the straight kind, not the curly kind. The second tag, like in most HTML, has to have a / in it.

Hmmm. I was able to use your code to get my words in the link, but the link does't work. Wonder why?

@snood,
I use [url][/url]

after clicking on URL from the BBCCode Editor

I type = in the first url box

[url=][/url]

then put in the link

[url =http://www.biography.com/news/happy-days-cast-where-are-they-now][/url] (added a space in here so you can see what it will look like)

then type in the words I want between the url boxes

it's a surprise

My bad. I should have either left of the angle brackets, or advised that they were part of the variable field.
