This is probably in completely the wrong forum, but I'm not sure where else to put it. Move it if necessary.

You know someone posts a link (this one to TSR) for example:

http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/

But it actually reads as a title The Student Room-- rather than a full link. Yet when you click on the link, it still leads you to the same web page.

Well how do people do that? I see it all the time on Internet forums, and I'd really like to know how it works.

Thanks.

^Just quote my reply and you can see the code

I think it's the same for other forums that use 'forum code' but for HTML you have to use:

you can bin the quote marks on that too, which will save you some time, like half a second or something:

Yeah I use the globe icon. Highlight the word you want to link then hit the globe icon, paste/type your link. Done.
