Instructions on Inserting Live Links - bbCode Basics

Note: If this lesson seems a bit unclear to you, you may want to check basic bbCode lessons: How Does bbCode Work? & How to Correctly Insert Tags.

By "live links", I mean links in which you can click to go to a different page or website.

Now, in most of forums, you just paste your Hyperlink or URL, submit the message and it's automatically converted to a clickable link, but anyways, let's see how to do that manually + some more very useful options.

The tag for links is this:

[url]

Let's use this blog URL "http://learn-bbcode.blogspot.com/" as an example, the code will be:

[url]http://learn-bbcode.blogspot.com/[/url]

Result:

http://learn-bbcode.blogspot.com/

No problem till now, but what if you want a part of your text being clickable? Something like "Click Here" or ''Go Here" or just a name of a site or anything else?

For that you have to add an option, here, the option will be the Hyperlink itself, & the tags will wrap the text you want to be clickable.

Now, as an example, I'll use my blog title "Learn Forums bbCode Secrets" & its URL of course:

[url=http://learn-bbcode.blogspot.com/]Learn Forums bbCode Secrets[/url]

Will look in your final message:

Learn Forums bbCode Secrets
