    Help with copy-paste links

    HOW does one take a link say from a news story or photo from Tinypic and change the words so when its pasted here it can be re-worded?
    For example, if I copy a link from a newspaper www.postgazette.com/asdhuwedn!@#$%sdnfns {not a real link}
    and make it
    CLICK HERE......

    Im alittle dumb when it comes to this

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    Allow me to be of some assistance

    All you have to do is go like this: (without the spaces)

    [ U R L = www.notarealsitebutitsallicouldthinkof.com ]whatever you want it to say, type it here[ / U R L ]

    And when you are done, it looks like this

    Whatever you want it to say, type it here

    I hope this helps

    Another way is to to go ahead and copy the link don't paste it just yet, then type out what you want it to say then highlight what you just typed. Then click on the insert a link icon above and paste the link in there. Hit "OK" and it is done.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Or you can use the icon that looks like the earth with a paperclip right above the text box. When you click on it, paste the link into the window that pops up. Then whatever you type in the highlighted area will appear as text that you can click on to go to the URL you pasted in the box.
