I have often thought that the facts about putting a hyperlink in a posting should be collected in a single place. I have fixed my earlier posting to do that.
The posting now includes:
*) Making a basic hyperlink (redundant with several other postings)
*) Using tinyurl so that long URLs will work
*) How to reference a specific posting in a thread (such as I just did at the start of this posting)
The last of those is something I have not seen documented in another posting. It often requires looking at the source HTML. I hope that is not too off-putting. I hope that my directions are clear.
If anyone has suggestions for improving the posting -- corrections, pointing out something confusing or unclear, a way to make any of the information more accessible, other information that should be included there, etc please let me know.
