PT,
Thanks for the id

Ok, say you want to make a link to NSS Website, this is what you would do.
Select the words that you want to make a link e.g. 'NSS Website' , click on the URL button above the edit box and insert in the web address within the URL tag like this [ url = http://www.nss,org.sg ] NSS Website [ /url ]

The result will be like this : NSS Website

note : there must not be any white spaces within the [ ]. I intentionally put in white spaces so that the editor will not recognize it as a valid code thus display the code as is.

Thanks, Steven.
Some fruits were still green when I saw them 2 weeks ago.
They are called 'Seven Sister's Fruit' (Chut Chair Kuo) or the Nanyang artists who drew them called them Phoenix's Eyes.
Georgette Chen did an exquisite oil painting of these fruits. Boiled, they taste like boiled Jackfruit seeds.
Cheers!

I know how it is done, but when I click on the URL tag, there's no tag box to insert the website, instead the same words are enclosed with [url]same words[/url], how leh ??

Yes, some forum software will have a popup asking for address. For phpforum, after the url tags have been inserted, just type in the '=' and paste in the address.
