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

Click here for the best website in the world

(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
