User error, could use some help
« on: March 24, 2017, 02:47:52 PM »
I thought the way i was posting links would allow them to be "descriptors" and not full links. How do i do the thing where it can make a link in to a word?

If that's what your looking for  I could explain it if you would like. The way I learned how to do it was easy . If you will click on the quote on my post (you don't have to post it) you can see how it's done. Just practice a post and hit review before posting to see if it worked if not just check yours till you get it right.

It all depends on the site to be honest.

Some sites, like Tackle Warehouse you can simply  paste the url into your post and it will appear as you are asking... like such:

Cashion John Crews Signature Series Casting Rods

Other sites, where they don't have meta data and page titles formatted properly or even present, you will only get a long url.

I'm sure you have seen where I have gone behind posts after they were made and change all the links to look like this:

Cashion John Crews Signature Series Casting Rods

When you see that, I have used the BBC code to alter those links... (I alter them to add the site code to the TW links)

I see you post a lot of Tackle Warehouse links... which is awesome! :D  They all should turn into "descriptors" that you are wanting. If they aren't it makes me wonder what device are you posting from? Maybe that has something to do with it?

but below are the codes to manually make any link just display the title and not the entire url.



Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Cashion_John_Crews_Signature_Series_Casting_Rods/descpage-CJCCR.html?from=castc]Cashion John Crews Signature Series Casting Rods[/url]Will give you: Cashion John Crews Signature Series Casting Rods

If you like to make the link bold and have a different color like this Cashion John Crews Signature Series Casting Rods you can use this code:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Cashion_John_Crews_Signature_Series_Casting_Rods/descpage-CJCCR.html?from=castc][color=#1877c7][b]Cashion John Crews Signature Series Casting Rods[/b][/color][/url]


b in brackets is what makes it bold. You can take those out if you do not want it bold. If you want a different color you just replace the 6 (hexadecimal) alphanumeric characters after the # (hashtag)... this is a good Color Picker to choose other hexadecimal colors from.

You can change the color to whatever you wish. I am just showing the site color I use.

But, with most sites, you can simply paste the url into your post and the site's software will parse it and show only the page title rather than the whole url.

I hope this post explains how to have full control, if you wish, over your links for your posts. :D
