If you just type it out the board software will automatically make it "clickable", no special code required. This is the easiest way for most people as it's all automatic.

If you want to substitute the raw link for a word, for example "Click HERE for the website" with the word "HERE" being the link, you need a bit of BBcode.

Click the "URL" button at the top of the post screen. It will popup these codes: [url][/url]

Now, place you URL in the BBCode as follows: [url=http://www.rv-forums.org]HERE[/url]

The board will now interpret the code and replace the raw URL with the word "HERE" which will be highlighted as a clickable link - when clicked, the board will redirect the member to the link you posted.

So, for example:

Posting a raw link and letting the board do the work: http://www.rv-forums.org

The fancier "BBCode" way: Click here to go to RV-Forums.org

No problem, feel free to make a few "Test" responses in this thread to experiment if you wish.

Welcome to the forum, by the way!
