HOW-TO GUIDE: Making Advanced links.

Postby Shy Guy » Tue Feb 09, 2010 10:37 pm

If you ever want to make website links a bit more professional, or clean, this is the how to guide to turn This:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjSHmnXE ... r2-2r-3-HM

Into This:

Metroid Prime Music - Space Pirates Research Lab






First off, I'm going to put this all the tags into Code form, so none of the tags actually work.[/b]
STEP ONE:Okay, first, let's take the URL tags (If you want to make the link read as a custom phrase, you'll have to change the Tag from "[url][/url] into "[url][/url]")
Code: Select all
[url=][/url]



STEP TWO:Next, let's get a URL
Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjSHmnXEitA&feature=rec-r2-2r-3-HM




STEP THREE:Then, we put the URL in the tag "[url=]" after the equal sign and before the second bracket.
Code: Select all
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjSHmnXEitA&feature=rec-r2-2r-3-HM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjSHmnXEitA&feature=rec-r2-2r-3-HM[/url]



STEP FOUR:Finally, add whatever you want the Link to read as in between the two tags [url]&[/url] ((I'll put in "Metroid Prime Music - Space Pirates Research Lab"))

Code: Select all
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjSHmnXEitA&feature=rec-r2-2r-3-HM]Metroid Prime Music - Space Pirates Research Lab[/url]




And finally, it ends up looking like this:
Metroid Prime Music - Space Pirates Research Lab


(If I [Or others] end up making a lot of these HOW-TO GUIDES, would it be okay if a mod/Admin makes a Subforum for all of them? As an introduction into the world of Forums?
