Yah I did it... Just copied it symbol for symbol... ps there no red text anywhere on this thread  for me.. I'm sure I'm not colour blind

Did you HAVE to do that Vegegrow!

Oh ok it wasn't your fault ... resposibility for my own actions and all that. I've banned myself from going anywhere near news and current affairs programmes/sites but like a numpty pressed on the link to see if it worked and got Trump on my screen.  I'm going to need  :toast: to get over the trauma!

Anyway thanks to Fran for explaining all that .... not sure i've got it but at least I'll know which thread to come to when my brain is better engaged!

A bit late to the party I know, but does this mean if it does not appear as red text (which mine does not) will it not work?

The red text was to draw our attention in how to make the link.  Some people, myself included, couldn't see the red.  If you practice the hyperlink as Fran has demonstrated, you will see how it works.

Instead of the closed square bracket, you should have put = and to make a 'short form', write the description followed by [/url].  Give it another go.

Okay, see this



The next hurdle will be placing the short link where you want it in the sentence.  Took me a while to master that.  0_0
