Code for Words in Links?

Postby Xenops » Sun Mar 19, 2017 11:28 pm

So I would like to make links that are words, rather than the link address. I've tried both of these:

<a href="yahoo.com">Yahoo</a>
[url="yahoo.com"]Yahoo[/url]

and neither work for me. What is the secret, please? :D

In the second example remove the quotation marks and add http://

Code: Select all

 
 [url=http://yahoo.com]Yahoo[/url]
 

should give
Yahoo
