Need help with renaming links
« on: January 07, 2013, 05:39:25 am »
How do I replace a link address with a word describing what it is?  I know there is a way to turn:
 
http://theocdalliance.createaforum.com/members/
 
into the words:
 
"The OCD Alliance Home Page"
 
I have tried using [ url="http://theocdalliance.createaforum.com/members/"]"The OCD Alliance Home Page"[ /url] (without the spaces, so that you can see the code) and it comes out looking the way I want it to, which is: The OCD Alliance Home Page" ... but the link doesn't work.

Yes, I would of said use a tiny url and choose custom url, but what you did wrong was the [ / url ] was at the end of the The OCD alliance word so it confused and made The OCD Alliance it because it was the closest. Xboi has already answered so :P
