    Default How Can I Link Text or a Picture to a Certain Thread?

    This has probably been asked before, but I've been searching and I can't find it. If it's a thread somewhere else or this isn't the right place feel free to delete or merge or do whatever to this thread, but PLEASE HELP ME! I want to be able to link my sprite shop in my sig without just putting the URL. I want a certain picture or a word/phrase to link to it.
    Thanks in advance,
    Your friendly neighborhood HM

    What you can do is before you put the link in, type the word you want the link to be like "My Sprite Shop" and you'll see a button on top of the editorwhich looks like a globe with a link symbol, if you highlight it, it should say "Link".Highlight the text you wish to insert the link into and press that button, then paste in the URL for the link click ok, and press save. The link should be inserted and when clicked should link to whatever the link is for.

    Example: The Garden Grotto

    Hey HM,

    Parsing your URL is easy. You just need to use BB Code. BB Code uses tags, and you've probably used it already, in your signature. Like, "[*IMG]Sprite[/IMG], for example.

    So in this case, use the URL tags, like so: [*URL="YOUR URL GOES HERE, BETWEEN THE QUOTATION MARKS"]YOUR TEXT GOES HERE, BETWEEN THE END BRACKETS[/URL].

    Just be sure to fix the parse by removing the asterisk (*) from the opening tags. Also, if you want an image to be the link, and not text, just place the [*IMG] tags between the end brackets, like you would the text (i.e. [*URL="YOUR URL GOES HERE, BETWEEN THE QUOTATION MARKS"][*IMG]Sprite[/IMG][/URL]). Your sprite will now link to the link destination, when clicked.

    Alternatively, you can click the world icon in the toolbar at the top of the Quick Reply and it will set this same BB Code up for you.

    If you have any other questions, just ask.
