I am wondering if anyone could explain how to place a link in a post and have it display as 'LINK' or whatever and not the actual url.
I'm sure this is elementary but...

I think I understand what you're asking and hopefully this will help.

If you want it to remain in long form, use the URL button above the message body. If you want to convert it into a word (as I usually do) it's slightly different. I will provide examples...

I'm going to use '{' rather than '[' because if I used the square brackets, it would activate the links and cause the commands to disappear.

{url}http://whatever.your.link.is{/url} long form

{url=http://whatever.your.link.is}whatever text you want{/url} short form

And if you want to color and/or bold your text, {url=http://whatever.your.link.is}{whatever color you want, i.e. color=red}{b}whatever text you want{/b}{/color}{/url} short form (note, "color" is spelled correctly by the BBC people, not the corrupted spelling, "colour", which is pronounced "col-ower").

Are you saying they invented both Canadian and English?

Canadians speak English, albeit with an accent, eh?

Americans? Well, other than a few spelling faux pas and the horror which is ebonics, you do okay...
