  • From faq:


    This is useful for people who want to link to lists but don't know how. Using the Brackets is for words, not lists. I've seen some people try to link lists this way, and it doesn't work.

    This is done by making a simple HTML tag. The example is below.

    <A HREF="blah">Linked text here</A>

    Where "blah" is, you replace that with the URL. The URL is the exact web address. To get that, all you have to do is highlight the URL/Address at the top of your browser and then COPY-PASTE it into where the "blah" is. That's it! Enjoy!
