How to add a long url link in a post

Back to FAQ Index


Sometimes members wish to add a link (to other sites) to their posts which are really long. When they are wider than the page they "break" the site's template and as a viewer it looks awful  :003:

So in order to add a link that's really long do the following:


1. When composing your post, click on the add URL button:




2. Then add your URL link between the code and edit it so it looks like the example below. This example links to the MCN website:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.motorcyclenews.com/nav?page=motorcyclenews]MCN LINK[/url]
In your actual post it will look like the "Good Example" in 1. below.

1. GOOD EXAMPLE OF ADDING A LINK    :028:

MCN LINK

2. BAD EXAMPLE OF ADDING A LINK     :006:

http://www.motorcyclenews.com/nav?page=motorcyclenews   

If the actual link is short in length then the 2nd way is fine, but if it's quite long then the 1st example is best.
