I *think* you type out your post, then double click what you want to be the link, like if you typed “here” then double click the word and then click the chain/link icon in the formatting section of the typing box. Then fill out the things it asks for in the window that pops up. I always forget this tho! And I’m not very good at explaining it 😛

I’ve been trying to figure out how to do that too!  Maybe someone can post a wiki.

hcritton has it right! Here’s the formal writeup:

Type in a word into the posting field and then select it with your mouse.

Then click on the “link” icon in the editing field… and paste the URL you want to link to in the link URL field.

When you’re done with that, click the Insert button and you should be all set!

Is there a way to make an image link to an external site? Or would that just confuse everyone? 🙂
