In Wordpress double click on the word and then click on the “link” icon and enter the url and it will make the word clickable!

I tend to use the following

Code:
[url=www.thereverend.co.uk]Click here for the best website in the world[/url]

It gets even better when you do it with images

Should become

(or just use the icon in the text box that looks like a pair of handcuffs - I think it is supposed to be a 'link')

Like a little bit of HTML. First learnt what I know through wanting it for posts in forums many years ago!

Aye Forums are all 'visual' these days which I'm very happy with as it leaves a lot less room for 'user error' lol
