I used to click on the "BB Code" to remind me of how to post a link with my own text. Now I get a "fatal error" message. Could someone remind me how to do this seemingly easy thing?

Or, if the Harbormaster reads this, I wonder if he couold fix what is wrong with the "BB Code" help link at the bottom left of the page?

As usual...THANKS!

If I understood the question correctly...

I just tried with the "Insert Link" button (its icon is a globe with a link, right below the smileys dropdown) and it worked for me. Just hit the button and then paste or enter the URL in the box it gives. Worked for me, as shown by the link below.

Would this be a Mod Squad reference? :lol9:

:) I was going for Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp.

Does he have ties to the Mod Squad? I never knew anything about them.

Wait, suddenly now I think I understand Tony's original question. I think he means inserting a link, but instead of displaying the link's URL, display whatever text you want.

I KNOW I have done this before. I thought the "Insert Link" button had a box for any text you wanted, but I may be confusing that with MS Outlook's link functionality. But I HAVE done it here. Can't recall or figure out how, however.

I DO get the same fatal error when I hit the "BB Code" button down at the far lower left of the screen.

I have always just cut and pasted any link that I wanted to post.
