Nope,wrong again.

When I right click on the big web address at the top of the ebay page ( next to the http:/ word, and right click on it, the cut and copy words are not highlighted so I cannot action it.

Am I defo clicking in the right box ?

Anybody got a picture for a plonker to follow please ?

Albert
To have the words "Click Here" or indeed any choice of words clickable with a web link behind it do the following.

Click Here
the code will like this in your post
Code: Select all
[url=http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/the_spares_barn/]Click Here[/url]


Now the easy way to do this is to click the URL button once which will place the following code in your post
Code: Select all
[url]
(notice that the buton you clicked now has an * on it, this indicates you have opened a code tag in this case URL).
now click between the l and the ] and add = then paste the web link so the code looks like
Code: Select all
[url=http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/the_spares_barn/]

then finish by clicking the URL button again to add the closing tag.

This method is employed by scammers etc to lure people into thinking they are visiting a place they know and trust
Login to you bank account NOW So ALWAYS check a link before you click. You can do this simply by hovering your mouse pointer over the link without actually clicking, then look at the bottom bar of your browser window and on the very bottom at the left you will see displayed the true link behind the words.

Thank you Rob I have taken in half of the above this morning-its very good to know the bit about-"hovering" to see the proper location youre about to visit. Did not know that.That could save me a lot of grief as I expand my use on the 'tinternet.
Thanks for the link to Google,will have a good look at that today, got called into ex-work this weekend (don't ask).
Also as I will not be too busy today(fingers crossed), I have set my major personal task today of mastering this (simple) problem  :oops:  of posting a link.   :shock:

Here's my latest effort-a tester bid to see if it will work this time.

There's no telling where this is going to lead.

Well now, a bit of that worked --hey ho.

I don't want to download the threee tester elements, on the given link, to create my own web page on this works machine -one -eyed- monster, so I'll wait until I get on my machine at home.

Wait til Boy Blunder comes back from Switzerland,he'll think Dads gone bonkers talking about creating a web page LOL

It's all quite complicated, and lots of new words, but I'll have a go. At least now I can create a link to something, which for me is a real giant step for morrie kind.

Mucho grassyas  Rob etc

Welcome Phillip, hope you enjoy the rest of the info on here.

They are a terrific bunch realy quite tame (all eccept O'le big Hairy feet)  :lol:
It would be good to see what vehicle (s) you have,what work you're panning and better still what work you have done (with pics if you have any).

Happy posting with us-feel sure the welcoming party will not be long in arriving .

Regards

Cliff
