There are 2 methods you can use to post a link. Both of them will need you to copy the URL from the address bar at the top of the webpage.

The first (and easiest) method is as follows.
    1. Press the URL button
    2. Paste the address
    3. Press the URL button again

While you're typing your message, this will appear as [ url ] http://www.knittinghaven.com/ [ /url ] (but without the spaces), once your message is posted, it will appear like this - http://www.knittinghaven.com/

The second method is useful if the URL is particularly long.
    1. Press the URL button
    2. Before the close bracket, type = then paste the address
    3. After the close bracket, type the information that you want to appear
    4. Press the URL button again

While the message is being typed, it will appear as [ url = http://www.knittinghaven.com/ ] KnittingHaven [ /url ] (again, without the spaces), and the posted message will show KnittingHaven

I've just noticed that there can be a glitch when posting links to websites. If you are posting the whole url as your link, please make sure that there are no spaces between the two URL tags, otherwise it prevents your whole post from showing.

(Please note that this does not apply if you are using the second method shown in my first post, so long as the spaces are in the text that you want to appear.)
