Trying to link to in an site

I just recently swam to

<a href='http://http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=a6fc988f-214f-4608-b447-bfe4c72162c4' title=''>Cram Island </a>

and loved it so much I bought a Kayak to do more Island Caching. Any other good ones within 150 miles or so of the Fox Valley?



I used an HTLM code generator for this one, but I also tried cut and pasting and writing my own...nothing works. Any help?

you could always just post the GC code... GCVYKT
Jeremy made it so that if we write a GC number it is automatically made into a HTML link.

I kayaked to that cache 2 years ago this month...fun cache.

You can also use the URL button when writing your post or just type:
"[url=your web address goes here]" Your webpage name "[/url]" without the quotations.
Pushing the button just gives you "[url]" on the front, so you have to plug in the = sign and the address inside the bracket.

The forums don't use standard HTML tags (no idea why, but they don't). Try this: [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=a6fc988f-214f-4608-b447-bfe4c72162c4''>Cram Island[/url] but it will only work in threads where the HTML (pseudo HTML) is "ON". In this thread it's turned off so it doesn't work correctly.

Put yet another way (just what you need, huh? This is a remake of glorkar's post), use the options for inserting an URL as displayed when you 'mouse over' the "URL" button.


To insert the url link alone: [url]http://url[/url]

or

To insert the link, but display only an URL TEXT name such a "CRAM ISLAND" in our posting: [url=http://url]URL TEXT[/url]


OK Neon, now it's your turn: Final exam time! Let's see it!

The forums use BBCode.

The Wikipedia explains why: "Bulletin Board Code or BBCode is a lightweight markup language used to format posts in many message boards........BBCode was devised to provide a safer, easier and more limited way of allowing users to format their messages. Previously, many message boards allowed the users to include HTML formatting, a side effect of which was that malformed HTML could disrupt the page's layout, or HTML could be used to run JavaScript leading to XSS attacks..............."

Just noticed this, but if you hover you cursor over the buttons up top while writing your post it will display the code directly above the text box.

And the forum uses BBCode because the language it is written in is PHP. The BB stands for Bulletin Board. So basically, since it's not written in html, html code will not work.

While I didn't spend more that a minute glancing at your code (so more could be wrong, in theory) ... there is a very glaring mistake ... You have http:// TWICE for some reason, at the beginning of it.
