Not entirely sure where to put this, so Mods, please move it if it's in the wrong spot.

So anyway, I keep seeing a lot of posters linking articles and saying "Sorry, dunno how to make it hyperlink"
So I figured maybe we could help each other out...

to hyperlink, simply copy and paste the link, then put [ url ] in front of it and [ /url ] behind it, (omit the spaces I have included, they are only there for display)
so....[ url ]http://boards.giants.com/forums/ShowThread.aspx?PostID=2571461#2571461[ /url ] becomes:

http://boards.giants.com/forums/ShowThread.aspx?PostID=2571461#2571461

to BOLD something, just put [ b ] in front and [ /b ] in back, (again, omitting the spaces)

Italics works the same, just use "i" instead of "b"

I'm sure others know how to change fonts and colors... I've forgotten... please share the knowledge...

There is a tool bar above the message text box. Under "Message" are five dialog boxes, from left to right:

Font size, font type, text color, highlight color, <font color="#000000">Insert Smiley</font>

Under the <font color="#FF0000">text color</font> dialog box is the icon for hyperlink which resembles a sphere and chain link. If you paste a link in the message box, highlight it and copy it into the hyperlink box; VOILA! I don't think the highlight color works lol

Either way, you should get an active link

the box you're talking about doesn't come up on everyone's computer... on mine, it doesn't exist... so I had to learn to do things the hard way...smileys are beyond my comprehension tho... I stick to :) and :(

You just do the smilies in the brackets.

This should be stickied in TAGF.

I can't believe there isn't a guide on here for people who need it.

At the very least, condense the info contained into one post and sticky it...
