    Default Stupid question: How do I addm non-image links to a post that look neat and pretty?

    I'm sure this is answered somewhere but despite my efforts I don't see it in the FAQ.

    Can anyone help me out?

    There are two options:
    1) just paste the URL and the software will display it as a hyperlink

    2) use the link icon in the tool bar, it looks like the world with an infinity symbol. If you want the link to be displayed as a word or phrase, type that in first and highlight it, then click on the link icon and paste the URL there.

    Thank you so much! I'm not sure why I didn't see that link. haha

    If you hover the mouse over a toolbar icon it will show a little text bubble with the icon's name. Also, there are more tools if you use "Go Advanced" in the lower right hand corner of the text entry box.

    I did not know this! Game changer! I usually use my phone to access LHC and this will let me stop highlighting long lines of url in between the link box brackets!
