How to use Link Paste...

Ok, you've found an ad, site, or something you'd like to share on the forum.

- On the page you'd like to share/link to, go to the top of the screen. The "URL" (long line of gibberish that starts with http://) is displayed.

- Click/Drag/Highlight this entire line, then Right click and "copy".  (This puts this URL/address onto your clipboard memory)

- Go to forum, and click the "Start a new Topic" button on the appropriate area.

- Type your reply message in the forum straight on through, and kind of think ahead... to include text to where you're going to link to (example: Neat Car for Sale on EvilBay).

- Go back and Click/hold/drag & highlight the word(s)/sentence you'd like to link.

- click the link button on the menu - looks like chains - right below the "underline" command for text. A window will pop up.

** The "chains" icon only appears in the Advanced Editor, or when you've clicked/dragged/highlighted text. It will be grayed out otherwise **

- where it asks for the URL, click the cursor there and then either Ctrl+V, or right click, Paste.

- The words you highlighted will now be "linked" to the URL you copied earlier.
