Post Hyperlink
How do I create a hyper link that I can post in a forum or on an ad that will automatically take the person clicking the link to the desired site?

Or, how do I create a "clickable" link? I tried the "[ url ][ /url ]" but it didn't work.

I'm placing an add for a bbc super charger kit on ebay, and I want to post data from the manufacturer's website.

Specifically these are the two links I'm trying to ad:

<a href="http://www.whipplesuperchargers.com/product.asp?ProdID=1150"> Whipple 500EFI Kit</a>


<a href="http://www.ebay.com/itm/150829613676?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1952.l2649"> Ebay Listing for 500Hp EFI </a>

When you post on here, above the area where you enter text there is a button labeled URL. Click on it, past the url you want in between the brackets and boom, you have a clickable link.

Also, you were basically right before, except you had extra spaces in there. What you want is this: [url][/url]

He wants to change the text to be something other than the url. He wants a link that says Yahoo! not http://www.yahoo.com

yahoo

PS there's a simple tutorial if you hover over the url link

"[ url=http://yahoo.com]Yahoo[/url]

remove the space between the [ and the url and you're in business, hope this help.

I put the spaces in so people could see it without it disappearing.

The [url] thing doesn't work in ebay for some reason. I tried the a herf, that's what some html guys told me to use, but that didn't work either.

The [URL] thing is phpBB code whereas eBay uses HTML, which is what these are:
<a href="http://www.whipplesuperchargers.com/product.asp?ProdID=1150"> Whipple 500EFI Kit</a>
<a href="http://www.ebay.com/itm/150829613676?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1952.l2649"> Ebay Listing for 500Hp EFI </a>

Those appear to be properly formed anchor tags, are they not working on eBay???
