Help with posting

Some of you manage to put a hyperlink with the web address hidden behind some text.

For example when referring to a cache the text shows the cache name and when you click it takes you to the cache page. The only thing I seem to be able to manage is to have the web address showing.

If you understand what I am on about can you help me?

For this example I've replaced the [] brackets for (), so you can see what needs to be done.

When you click on the "Insert Hyperlink" button you get "(url)(/url)".

To get the text hyperlinked, have it like this e.g. (url=http://coord.info/GC44JAY)snow cache(/url)

OK :)

Thus you will get (using the correct [] brackets): snow cache
