Qeuestion on embedding a URL

Post by WEDFan » Wed Jan 08, 2014 12:28 pm

Today was the first time I created a post with a link in it. I used the URL button and it gave me begin and end url tags. I put the URL in between and everything seems to work just fine, except...

I always used to change the text of the link to something in English rather than the URL and I wasn't sure if it could be done on the new site. I thought there might be a tag attribute or something to specify text. Can anyone enlighten me?

Let's test it right here, right now.

Stupid Guest Tricks

Okay, so I am going to replace the brackets with parenthesis, and it looks like this:

Yes. Undo what I did to show it. Plus, if you're here linking to the SGT homepage, there is something wrong with you. Just my professional opinion.
