Creating a link

I need some help. I notice sometimes that people will create a link to a previous post within a reply to someones post. How do you do this?

If you mean a completely different post, track down that post and copy the address up in your address bar.

1. Go to the post you want to link to and copy the address at the top of your browser.

2. Highlight it, right click your mouse and choose copy. Sometimes you can just click once in the address bar to highlight it sometimes you have to scroll the cursor across it to highlight it.

3. Go to the post you want to reply in.

4. Say what you've got to say.

5. Right click again and choose paste.

I think slatron25 actually answered your question while I was goofing around.

Lightbulb Clarification

A "quote" is not a "link"
Tim's method is the one I use. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
