    How to post here

    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/Show...571461#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...

    Re: How to post here

    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
