Creating a Hyperlink in your message

You can easily add a hyperlink to your message.

All that you need to do is type the URL (http://dunzell.com//forum/), and it will automatically be converted to a URL (http://dunzell.com//forum/)!

The trick here is to make sure you prefix your URL with the http://, https:// or file://

You can also add a mailto link to your message by typing in your email address.

This Example:
bfredrick@gmail.com
Outputs this:
bfredrick@gmail.com.

Another way to add hyperlinks is to use the [url]linkto[/url] tags

This Example:
[url]http://dunzell.com//forum/[/url] takes you home!
Outputs This:
http://dunzell.com//forum/ takes you home!

If you use this tag: [url="linkto"]description[/url] you can add a description to the link.

This Example:
Take me to [url="http://dunzell.com//forum/"]Dunzell's Den[/url]
Outputs This:
Take me to Dunzell's Den
This Example:
If you have a question [url="bfredrick@gmail.com"]Mail Me[/url]
Outputs This:
If you have a question Mail Me

You can make clickable images by combining the [url="linkto"]desc[/url] and [img]image_url[/img] tags
This Example:
[url="http://dunzell.com//forum/"][img]http://dunzell.com//forum/http://www.dunzell.com/images/den.gif [/img][/url]
