Not a bug...just a tech question.
I've been posting links to articles in the forums for years using the editing window. But I've noticed some people have hyperlinks that are not just the link, but are renamed as a part of the post and show as blue and underlined I think.

How is THAT done?
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

Write what you want to be the renamed link first, then highlight that text an click hyperlink button, replace the word with the hyperlink.

I manually tag things. So I take say https://www.theonion.com/mom-watching-movie-won-t-stop-asking-questions-about-ho-1850294700

And do this without spaces: [URL= https://www.theonion.com/mom-watching-movie-won-t-stop-asking-questions-about-ho-1850294700 ]Mom Watching Movie Wonít Stop Asking Questions About How Plot Exhibits Current Trends In Film And Reflects Culture As A Whole[/ URL]

For: Mom Watching Movie Wonít Stop Asking Questions About How Plot Exhibits Current Trends In Film And Reflects Culture As A Whole

If you quote people posts who use them, you should see the code. Of course Ian's way is probably the way you will want to do it, but this as an alternative.

If I copy and paste a URL directly from the browser it does it automatically, like this.


This is with Edge btw.
