i'm not a great researcher so Im just making a quick thread.

How do you create a link within a post, of say another post?

How do you create a link to your website, say on your sig but have a tag with keywords instead of your own address?

thanks.

hmm...interesting.
Thanks ewing.

My only excuse for my earlier laziness, is that I have a cold.

In my younger days I'd have gone to work today and "sweat it out".

As an old fart, I prefer the "lay around and wait" approach.

I suppose I should get back to the couch...

Just copy the link of a thread, paste it in your post. PT links will automatically put it as the title of the post once you submit.like this http://www.painttalk.com/f15/ok-11724/#post183319 If you want it to go to a particular post like this http://www.painttalk.com/f15/ok-11724/#post183318 click on the post # before copying.
what about how your website shows up as Riverside County Painters instead of http://www.ewingpainting.net/. How is that accomplished?

test


trying to understand how to put vids on youtube.

heres a quick vid of a guy I had trying out for a job. Thats how I usually do it. I gotta see how they do. Hes putting on primer before texturing, so its harmless if he doesn't do any good.

I used my crappy phone camera. real bad quality.

You highlight the word or words you want to be linked. Then you click on the link icon, looks like a chain link. Then you past the link in the box. Like this. Riverside County Painters if you quote this post you can see the codes. Since I'm on my bb, I learn the codes or keep them in my note pad. Just edit the link and words.

Ok TJ look at this screen snip, you see the two highlighted areas? Type what you want the link to say, then highlight the word like you are copying it, then select the globe with the chain i highlighted. Then paste your link into that box that pops up. This is the same way you do links in a post but the above was for your signature in the user cp


And I still don't know where your avatar's from....so I guess we're both back to freakin' square 1.
