I've seen a number of threads on the same subject or question. I've seen some replies containing a link to elswhere on the forum to help people find the aleady discussed answers to their questions. How do we add those links? I see there's a hyperlink button next to the ones for bold, Italic and underline, but how does it work? I'm not sure how to connect it to the thread I want.

Hi! There are a couple of ways to do this, but here's the method I use:

1- After locating the thread you want to link to, select the entire URL in the Internet address bar and press Control+C to copy the URL.

2- In the post you are composing, highlight the words you would like to link from and click the hyperlink button within the message toolbar.

3- Press Control+V to paste the URL into the hyperlink box and click OK.

Hope that helps!
