HOW DO I CREATE LINKS OR POST LINKS?

Creating Links

Linking to another site
phpBB BBCode supports a number of ways of creating URIs (Uniform Resource Indicators) better known as URLs.
The first of these uses the [url][/url] tag, whatever you type after the = sign will cause the contents of that tag to act as a URL. For example to link to TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.org you could use the green text below:

Code: Select all
[url=http://www.TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.org/]Visit The Club's Forum![/url]


This would generate the following link, Visit The Club's Forum! Please notice that the link opens in the same window or a new window depending on the users browser preferences.
If you want the URL itself displayed as the link you can do this by simply using:

Code: Select all
[url]http://www.TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.com/[/url]


This would generate the following link, http://www.TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.org/
Additionally, phpBB features something called Magic Links, this will turn any syntactically correct URL into a link without you needing to specify any tags or even the leading http://. For example typing:
Code: Select all
www.TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.org

into your message will automatically lead to http://www.ThelincolnMarkVIIClub.org being output when you view the message.
The same thing applies equally to e-mail addresses, you can either specify an address explicitly for example:

Code: Select all
[email]no.one@domain.adr[/email]


which will output no.one@domain.adr or you can just type no.one@domain.adr into your message and it will be automatically converted when you view.
As with all the BBCode tags you can wrap URLs around any of the other tags. As with the formatting tags it is up to you to ensure the correct open and close order is followed, for example:

Code: Select all
[url=http://www.TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.org/][img]http://www.TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.org/images/logo/icon002.jpg[/img][/url]

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
THIS IS CORRECT.
Code: Select all
[url=http://www.TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.org/][img]http://www.TheLincolnMarkVIIClub.org/images/logo/icon002.jpg[/url][/img]

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
THIS IS INCORRECT.
