icon_confused.gif I have had a couple of times the last 2 days where I should've put a link to get to a picture or another thread. How do I do this? I see other people do it all the time, but I just don't know how to do it. Do people copy/paste. Or how do I type the exact link to put in my thread?? I hope this question makes sense, because I see other people do it all the time................ icon_redface.gif

I open up the other topic or photo (or another website) in another tab in my internet explorer. I go up to the address bar, highlite the address (all of it don't leave anything off) and the paste it into my post.

I was taught to go to the page I want to make a link for, highlight (click on) the address (at the top of the page) and copy that...then go to your post and paste the link into your post.

I just did that with this page we are on right now:

http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-587577.html

hope that makes some sense to you.

edited to add, if you did it correctly, the link will be in pink/red.

Sounds simple enough...
