There are several ways to include a link in your post.

1. You can just type the web address/URL.

Example:
www.allergicliving.ca

Note: Do not any text on either side of the URL, including brackets, commas, or periods. It won't work because when you click on it, your system will be trying to go to a web address that includes that extra text.

For example, if I write www.allergicliving.ca, it looks okay at first glance, but it won't work because of the comma. (Click on the link and try - you get a "page cannot be displayed" error.)

*****************************************************************************

2. You can surround the URL with special code.

a. Type your URL, with commas or periods or whatever touching it.
b. Select the entire URL -- but not the punctuation -- and click the URL button above the window where you're typing.

That puts special code around your web address and excludes the punctuation.

For example: I put the URL code around http://www.allergicliving.ca. So now it works, because the period at the end is not part of the web address.

Note: Make sure there are no spaces before or after the web address, or the link won't work.

For example: http://www.allergicliving.ca doesn't work because there is a space at the end, before the code. To fix it, I just have to edit my post and remove that space.

*****************************************************************************

3. You can "hide" the actual address and have text show up as the link.

Example:
Vancouver Sun May 10th editorial

a. Complete steps a and b in section 2 above.
b. Modify the code so that you put an equal sign followed by the URL right after the [url part of the code, and then put a square bracket right after the URL.
Example: [url=http://www.epi-man.com/english/kids-e.html ]
c. Type the text that you want to appear as the link.
Example: Epi-Kids Page
d. Lastly, put [/url] right after the text. Make sure there are no spaces in any part of url code.

Final example:
Epi-Kids Page

Note: I put spaces in the above examples so that you can see the code! Here's what it looks like when it's done correctly:

Epi-Kids Page
