    Hows it going, bored at work so I thought I would share some knowledge ;) Sometimes a websites link can be reall long and ugly for example an ebay listing looks like this

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vitos-Perfo...Parts_Accessories&hash=item27e846cc14&vxp=mtr

    a simple trick can make the same link look like this:

    Vitos 240 Kit from Ebay

    its very simple to do so before you post the like type this: [ url="link posted here"] Vitos 240 Kit from Ebay[/url]

    I put a space at the beginning between the [ and the U, take out that space and it will link it with whatever you want to write.

    Thanks @jbuckster07 for the quick guide.

    Another and easier way for you to do it without having to type out the code is to simply type the text that you want to link, highlight it, click the link button (looks like paper clip) on top of the text area and paste the url that you want that text to link to.

    See the video guide: http://screencast.com/t/CaS8fftawWhv
