Can someone please explain to me very simply exactly how I can put a link here that works? Everytime I try to do it, I screw it up.

Say I want to put a link to something on youtube....

I wanted to put a link to Let's Twist Again by Chubby Checker and screwed it up.

Please give me nice clear instructions. I can't believe how I mess this up every time! TIA

    Hi CP! I'll try to help :)

    When I want to post a link, what I do is type a sentence or a word relating to the link, then highlight that sentence or word, and click the symbol above that looks like the planet with chain link in front of it.

    What will open up is a little box and it will already have http:// in there for you. I usually delete the [url]http://.[/url]

    Then I will go to the web page I am linking to and copy and paste the address for the page into that little box.

    Click ok, and then you're done!

    Does this make sense? Hope I've helped!

    Have two websites open (NC and whatever site you get your video from). Find what you want to put here and click in the address bar...www...line and click it 3 times until the whole address is highlighted, right click your mouse and copy, and then you come to this site, start the thread or reply to the post and right click again and past.
