Select the link, then click on the "Img" button in the editing toolbar. Or, just copy this into your post:

Code: Select all

[img]http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51a2UgeVQSL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg[/img]

Will appear as:

SeeMoe - try this format
url=www.bogleheads.org-or whatever web site you want]then whatever title you want here or repeat the web site[/url
note - I did not put the brackets at the beginning or the end because I wanted to illustrate the middle, but there needs to be a [ before the url and a ] at the very end for the whole thing to work.

Christine knows the code lingo better and explains it this way:

I'd say it's your computer. Try logging out and clearing your browser cache.

You need to put the first url like this -->> [url=then put the web site here] The = must be there.
Your concluding url looks correct -->>[/url]
I have to add the = and the / sometimes because the forum doesn't do it for me, but it has to be there for the whole link to work :happy

Let's do it this way:

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/index.html]This is Money[/url]

will show as: This is Money

This is a more complicated format than what can be done with the built-in forum URL button.

I'm using a browser extension called Make Link for Firefox, or Create Link on Chrome.

Hi in_reality,

No apology needed. I was laughing so hard =) at how creative you three were, in response to me trying to ascertain if my computer would let me post here. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't, which keeps things interesting.

Quoting the post you are responding to is also easy. Just hit the quote button before you reply.

Edit: corrected typo

Editing a post is also easy. If you made typo or want to make clarification, no problem! Just hit the Edit button. Common usage requires that you put a note at the end saying what you edited, but it's totally up to you!

This is a test reply, and a question or two.
How do we contact an Administrator? I cannot find the "contact us" link mentioned in the last FAQ.
Also, I saw a few topics that were questions for a panel. Are any Answres but the panels posted anywhere to be able to read them?
Thank you.

Not sure if this is the official best practices way, but you could always "report" your own post. Just click the exclamation point in the upper right corner of your post and follow on from there.

Thank you.

Reporting a post does work, but that feature is better intended to flag issues that need immediate attention. The best way to contact an administrator is by PM'ing one of the global moderators listed in The team link at the bottom of every forum page.

If you don't get a response, then report the post and someone will take care of it.

In addition to moderating (edit posts, etc.), moderators can do some administrative functions such as changing a username. A site admin (like me) does everything a moderator can do, as well as administrate the overall forum.

The panel questions are for the upcoming Bogleheads® Conference. <-- See this wiki page for links to the conference material.
