Default Typing links instead of complete URL

In the Gallery, when wanting to show the card that was my inspiration, I know there is a way to type a link to that card so the reader clicks on one word rather than the whole URL.

Is it simple to tell me how to do it or can you provide a link to a tutorial?

Thanks,
Bahb

Nanettesplace is spot on but just in case it's easier to see what she means, here's another way to show it

[*url=http://splitcoaststampers.com]type word in this spot[/url]

Just leave out the * when you do it for real. You're just using some bulletin board tags that tell a web browser to treat something as a link so [*url=] starts the instruction and [/url] tells it where it stops (but if I try to show you without the * in there the board sees it as the start of the instruction, not just a set of characters to display).

Cool

Thanks much. Now I get it, finally! I was trying to wrap my head around the last URL and realize that would be the URL where the photo of my inspiration card lives. This is so easy, now I feel stupid for consternating over it for so long.

Thanks again,
Bahb

I knew this was how to do this but when I tried to do it in the description field for an uploaded card, I finally gave up - it kept showing the whole thing with the HTML tags. I figured maybe the uploads don't support HTML, but that can't be. I'm going to have to go back and try again, now that I know I was right about how to do it.

I'll try the technique here:
[url=http://splitcoaststampers.com]here[/http://2.bp.blogspot.com/--tN9gmgYFkE/UL5Kag9bnII/AAAAAAAAF3Q/Hq6HRBUEsgY/s1600/20121204_140138+copy.jpg]

This is a card done by Ardyth (MASKerade) and I'm wondering if anyone can identify the stamp used.

I followed the inistructions for the link, I THINK!

HMMMMMM, back to ground zero. I think the forward slash before the last URL may be a problem, but I'm not sure. The long URL is what I got when I put my cursor on Ardyth's card, clicked right, then Copy Link. Then when I got to the last URL of the instructions, I clicked right, chose Paste, and that long thing is what happened.

Mr. Linky always likes how I do it, but without Mr. Linky I've been out of luck.

Almost! Try it like this, in brackets:

url=http://2.bp.blogspot.com/--tN9gmgYFkE/UL5Kag9bnII/AAAAAAAAF3Q/Hq6HRBUEsgY/s1600/20121204_140138+copy.jpg

then type your text, then end with

/url

in brackets.

Found her original blog post, and she says the snowflake stamp is from Kitchen Sink Stamps, but she couldn't find it listed.

OK, we may have confused you with the splitcoast url - that was purely an example and doesn't need to be included every time you do a link, you just need the one url of the project you're linking to. You're right that the slash in front of the long url is a problem and I have no idea how it got there.

Dini has laid out perfectly how to do it for the one of Ardyth's you were linking to.

Gallery uploads don't support html, they use bulletin board code. If you're really uinsg html (things that start and end with the pointy brackets < >) that would explain your problem. You need to be using the things with square brackets [ ] which are a different set of commands.

HTH!

Oh right, HTML is the < and > for the tags. No, I was using BBcode with the [ and ]. I don't know why it did not work the way I wanted it to. I'm going to have to go back and try to edit it until I get it right. It irritates me that I haven't. Thanks.

I just looked at the latest upload in your gallery Rachelrose and it looks like you have a figured since there's a perfectly formed link there, well done!

Yes, it worked as I wanted it to. The thing is, I didn't do anything different this time than I did in the first five tries. Or at least that's how I recall it. It just came out wonky every time. Ah well, fixed now. It's a handy thing to be able to do.

Can someone PLEASE share a direct link to instructions for this. So far I have not found them from this conversation. I know there use to be a link that told us step by step. Please share again with that direct link - in this conversation, there is not one link that show it's a link - you have to copy and paste and that is not working for me. thanks, Wanda

Both Joanne (post #5) and Dini (post #10) gave very clear instructions. I don't know where on this site the instructions you are looking for would be. Maybe someone else would know.

I learned from looking on a BBcode site. I just searched on BBcode and got several sites that explained how to do things in BBcode.

What is it you want to link to? Maybe if you provide the url you want to use, we can show you exactly how to format the command. Yes, the easiest thing to do is to go to the page you want to link to, then go up to the address bar and copy and paste the address.

Also be aware that on the forum we use BBcode and not HTML, so depending where you wanted to do this linking, it might not work if you use BBcode. If you want to do it on a blog, say, the BBcode tags would not work.

I know both instructions seem clear, but they didn't work for you the first five times. They haven't worked for me either, but I only tried four times. The problem is that it's a matter of following a recipe that is written in a foreign language, so to speak.

When I do get it,(and I WILL, dag nab it!), hopefully the step-by-step will pop out at me so I can post it in the Techniques section of SCS.

See if this explanation is clearer for you... there is a sample of the coded link in the comments below.

Thank you sooooo much, Dini. I've just enabled wysiwyg and that alone is a treat to learn. Also I never before noticed there is a SCS Help file, so thanks for that too.

It's close to midnight here, after a tough day, so will try to do the link thing again when fresh tomorrow. I can see where I was making the same mistake every time, so hopefully tomorrow I'll nab the brass ring!

Thanks again,

The step by step with visuals is great and might help someone get thier head round the principle BUT you can't do it that way in the gallery (which was the original question). It's exactly the same outcome but the little buttons and the pop up box to help you aren't there - if you want to do the link in a gallery upload, you have to learn to use the relevant bulletin board code manually (as outlined in the second of the comments as you say Dini but that's exactly the same as described here so if someone's struggling with the instuctions here I'm not sure whether those will be of more help).

thanks everyone = will try later - got alot going on now. But when I was more active on SCS, it was easy to do - and the explainations that one of the "people working with SCS" put on here, was excellent. But I will try this later and let you all know. thanks a bunch. I still want to do it on Ebay and hoping it will work there too. Thanks,

I think eBay went to BBcode a few years back. You'll have to check.

Again, if all else fails, copy and post a url you want to link to and the word you want to be the actual link and let someone give you the exact format for it.

Yes, it took me a bunch of tries, but once I got it, it made sense and now I can do it no problem. Same will be the case for you.

Oh bless you for giving me hope. Twice already I THOUGHT it made sense, but 2 more tries in the Gallery failed this morning. The last one is here:

This was inspired by Ardyth, my Main Muse, and her card found [url=http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-96bPjM6X-GY/T8Zrjh3uLlI/AAAAAAAACbE/kfPpGmkjttQ/s1600/May30a+001.jpg]here[url].

Please tell me what I have done wrong. The URL is what I got from right clicking on Ardyth's card and choosing Copy Link Location. Then I pasted that into my Gallery write up for a card I wanted to post in my Gallery. I did it exactly as you see it.

Bahb (Suddenly this printed Bold, without me touching anything but the keys to type it.. How does that happen?)

Dini, I went there and at the end of each line, where he says "...like this:" I assume there is an example but all the examples are blank, on my computer. Would the examples be blank because he used some code my security program doesn't allow, perhaps?

You made one crucial error. At the very end, after you type the word "here", use [/url] not [url] and it will work. Add that backslash.

See, here's your link:

here

Oh, nice card!

Try it and tell me if it works for you.

All tags have to be closed by repeating them at the end preceded by /.

/.
Okay, sixth try, includes the backslash, copied and pasted below:

Inspiration for this card came from Ardyth's card HERE.

I wrote more following that, then finished and clicked submit, and it printed as above. Maybe printing the word HERE in caps threw it off?

Holy cats, it worked here but not in the Gallery! Well, that's better than nothing, but what do I need to change to make it work in the Gallery?

It will work in the gallery, Bahb. That's where I was struggling with it. Once I formatted it correctly, it worked. I wish I could tell you what I kept doing wrong, but I don't know. Then I suddenly got it right. But one thing to check for is that you have no spaces between anything. Typing your link name in caps won't throw anything off.

Smile SUCCESS!

BOO RAH! YIPEE KIYAY!!!!! TAAA! DAAAAAAA! Ziipadeedoooda!!!!! I did it, FINALLY!!!!!!!~ I won't even admit how many times I have tried over how many months!!!!!!!!

Thank you all for sticking with me. The problem is that the finished product doesn 't show until it's published. I always trashed the project just before the final submission button, thinking I once again did it wrong.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is a lesson I will NEVER forget!

thanks again,
