Ok I got a question I was able to do this on another site and wondered how to do it here.  When inserting a hyperlink onto a word how do you go about doing this? 

Example:  Instead of having pictures take up so much space how do you add a link to say word "here like house" and it will take you to a link of a picture.

[url = your link here] your text here [/url]

Without spaces.
To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.

[url=urllinkhere]Words here[/url] squint but that's how it's done.
If you're searching the lines for a point, well you've probably missed it; there was never anything there in the first place.

You can even link your pictures. You just have to put the image code where you would put the (YAHOO!) text.

This will take you to yahoo]=http://www.yahoo.com]yahoo

so you have to add the = and a ]?  also do you have to highlight the word?

Look, the link consists of three parts:

First you are telling the board HOW you want the text processed. You want a link, therefore you have to say so. Everything you put between the [url][/url] will be shown as a hypertext.

Second you have to tell the board WHERE it should link, that's www.yahoo.com

Third, you have a text that should be displayed.

When you put the three together, you get something like this:

[url=www.where_the_text_leads.com]Any text you want, can even contain spaces or special letters, even a dot.[/url]

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
