In phpBB3, simple URLs are easy. Just type in the name of a website, and the link is automatically created:

http://www.phxfoodnerds.com

But what if you want the link text to be something other than the page's actual address? No problem. Just use the url tags. So, typing in...

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.phxfoodnerds.com]Click here to go to PHXfoodnerds.com![/url]
...will give you this...

Click here to go to PHXfoodnerds.com!

Conveniently, this works for images as well by nesting an img tag inside a url tag. So, typing in...

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.phxfoodnerds.com][img]http://www.chicagoposse.com/LiveJournal/sscrab-l.jpg[/img][/url]
...will give you this...

...a clickable image that links to an address.
