    I wanted to post the below link but it is really long and would have made reading the post a pain.
    Can I get another lesson in how to make it a one word link?   ???
    Tx showed me once but I forgot. :-[    Thanks for the help.

    Use [ url=http://site.com]SITE[/url] without the space.

    Replace SITE with text of your choice, and then replace http://site.com with the link of your choice.

    LINK

    Versa-Pod® Bipod

    .




    MY original post follows… None of the following links work in YaBB.


    MS Word is good for this!

    Paste the long-link into word and hit Enter. (Word will then make it into a full-sized link.)

    Highlight the full-size link and type in anything you want over it. LINK


    Also, you can paste text into the highlighted full-size link, but you’ll (most likely) need to use:

    Edit - Paste Special - Unformatted text. Versa-Pod®Bipod

    Now THIS is a tiny URL! .


    Opps! Sorry. I thought it would work.
    It works in emails. :-[

    Re-edited to try to make it work.

    DinkyLinks need to be placed inbetween , or start with http://www.anything

    Re-edited to ..... give up!
