Now try a photo,a hyperlink, and a hyperlink that is a word or words of your choosing instead of the URL...and when you get those to work please post how you did it because I have never found any instructions anywhere :-)

John,

To create a hyperlink that is a word/words of your choosing type this (it will open in the same window):

< a href="http://www.websitegoeshere.com">here
EDIT: It should look like this: < a href="http://www.yahoo.com">here edit:(ah damn no it shouldn't look like that either...)

Instead of websitegoeshere you'd insert whatever site you are trying to link to. Instead of here (in between the greater and less than symbols towards the end) add whatever word you want the link to appear as.

In the above example I put a space between the less than sign (<) and the a and the greater than at the end - when you type the whole command delete that space so it looks like this: This should take you to BPL home page, I hope

As for photos...i'll get back to you.

Triple edit: Apparently I really don't know what i'm doing - disregard my confusing instructions :( I'll just link to the post that Ken posted - it actually works.

I tried.

Better instructions here

Most of us have no idea what we are doing. We blame all of it in the forum software, which incidentally caused global warming, the Iraq war, and Dennis Rodman's drinking binge in Korea.

Welcome.
