    Well... I Googled it for a couple of hours but can't figure it out, I need to know how to make clickable links, example.. this---> http://codecs.com/movies/Flushed_Away.htm, is a link for a trailer of the movie Flushed away, so lets say I want to send it through e-mail to a friend but I would like that he clicks on that link or something else instead of the whole link like click here to see trailer and then it opens in a new page, I know its kind of a code and you put the original link in it and then it works but I couldn't get it to work, anyone got an idea would be nice

    Flushed Away Trailer! Like that?

    The stuff below explains it just replace "http://www.example.org" with your link and then the words you want the link to use in the "Text here" section. Just remove the two asterisks. (I had to include those so you could see everything, otherwise it became a clickable link!

    [*url=http://www.example.org/]Text here[/url[/b]*] -- The text "Text here" will appear as a hyperlink to the address www.example.org

    To make a link in a forum that displays the a name and points to a link replace "www.example.org" with the url you want and then replace "Text here" with the text you want diplayed and remove the two asterisks, as they are just there so you can see the code without it becoming a clickable link, just as PeaInAPod said:

    [*url=http://www.example.org/]Text here[/url*]
