How to: Quote and Insert Links

To quote another user, simply hit the Image button on the top right of their post. Then, remove the text you don’t want and add your own below. Alternatively, to do this manually, use the following code:

Code: Select all

[quote="all_apologies"]This is a quote[/quote]


To insert a link, use the following code:

Code: Select all

[url]http://www.problempages.co.uk/forum/[/url]


If you’d like to give your link a title, use the following code:

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.problempages.co.uk/forum/]Problem Pages[/url]


The above examples would produce
http://www.problempages.co.uk/forum/
and
Problem Pages
respectively.

Ooo. I never knew how to give my link a title before! Does this work on other websites other than Problem Pages? Just out of curiosity!

Thanks!
