How can I hide the URL and write a phrase for a link here?

Pretty links are my specialty. When you're making a post here, you should see an editing toolbar. There's an "A" with chains that lets you select text to be made into a hyperlink.

 

I'm on Firefox 3.5 on Mac. See the attached image, hope this helps!

Testing the linked text option::::::: Illustration Design

 

Seems to work fine for me Foobar...

 

Here's what i did::

 

1.) Click Post Comment ( or Reply)

2.) Type out what you want to

3.) Locate the text in the sentance you want to be hyperlinked

4.) Hold down your left mouse button (windows OS) starting at one side of the text & highlight it to the other side.

5.) let go of your mouse button (Make sure your selection is still highlighted).

6.) Click the Blue "A" with the chain link (top of your comment edit window).

7.) enter the URL & click submit (OK / Done)

 

That's it, Now you try it

This site does not parse html. You have to use the toolbar buttons (Read Scorpian's post below for a step by step).

 

I was just posting it for reference, in case someone does not know how to make a link in places that do parse html.

Okay, that was the only step I didn't try.

But sounds very reasonable. I'm testing it a last time with this interesting link for linking techniques.

 

And it works! Woot! Thanks everyone for helping!
