How do you make a "titled link" to a website?

So I can do it myself instead of having a moderator clean it up for me...

Here's the address (URL, link) to this post of yours above.

http://slotblog.net/...showtopic=12885

To clean it up, and establish a "titled link" you type:

{url=slotblog.net/index.php?showtopic=12885} Pablo's Post{/url}

Except you use [ & ] where I typed the { & } to keep it from activating.

Putting the correct brackets in place gives:

I don't understand this sentence: "Except you use [ & ] where I typed the { & } to keep it from activating."

But let me give it a try...

I find this confusing too... be easy if there was an a click and point feature.

We'll see if that is right...

Cool...

Pablo,

This was Bill's example....

{url=slotblog.net/index.php?showtopic=12885} Pablo's Post{/url}
Wherever there is a { bracket in the above line, put a [ bracket.
Wherever there is a } bracket, put a ]

One last thing, make sure you put a space between the 885] and the P in Pablo's Post
Oh, and don't add any '&' symbols.

Pablo,

Paul shows the final results but not the steps to get there. Brackets [ & ] with the url= & /url properly positioned, activates the raw HTML. In order to show you where to place them, I put in the blue { & } instead of brackets so you could see where they go before it activates.

Thus my statement of, "Except you use [ & ] where I typed the { & } to keep it from activating." Once you have everything in the proper places, the Preview Post & Add Reply buttons give you a "titled link" like what Paul shows or I showed on the last line of my first post. These "titled links" are clickable. Click on one and you go to its address.

Thanks, Bill. I really do appreciate your help on this... I so hated just posting complete links...

Pablo,

This is why I don't post links (unless I copy and paste them) or pictures. :)

Pablo, when I clicked on your ED link, I went to the proper site. It works! Click on it & see. :)

Cheater trained me one night how to do these "titled links" via a PM. :laugh2:

I've moved this thread to Board Info from Freeblog.

Let me add a little more info.

What is being used here isn't really HTML but rather BBcode, which is basically a subset of HTML and which uses square brackets, i.e. [], to enclose the code tags.

To illustrate code formats without "activating" them, we have to substitute other symbols for the square brackets, i.e. curly brackets like this: {}. To make the code functional, replace the curly brackets with the matching square brackets, i.e. [ for { and ] for }.

The basic BBcode format is {code}...{/code}

Examples:

{email}gwells@mindspring.com{/email} which gives gwells@mindspring.com when "activated"- a clickable mail-to link.

{b}Slotblog{/b} which gives Slotblog when activated.

{color=red}Slotblog{/color} which gives Slotblog.

{url}www.slotblog.net{/url} which gives www.slotblog.net - a clickable URL.

As indicated above, to do what I call a "titled link", this code format is used:

{url=www.slotblog.net}Slotblog{/url} which gives Slotblog when activated.

The email link works similarly:

{email=gwells@mindspring.com}Greg Wells{/email} which gives Greg Wells.

Mulitiple codes can be combined, as in this example:

{b}{size=3}{url=www.slotblog.net}Slotblog{/url}{/size}{/b} which gives Slotblog when activated.

No need to feel dumb, Pablo. I can't sail a decent-sized boat, much less a ship.
