Adding active links to your plug posting

If you take part in the forums on eBid, you are allowed to make one promotional post each day, to the "plug your auctions" thread.

To make your post as effective as possible, you can add clickable links to your store, or a section of your store.

First you'll need to store the "address" (url) of your store or section. Visit your store and select the section you want to link to. Once there highlight the address in your browser address bar (at the top) and copy to your clipboard (press control-key and c at the same time, or right click and copy).

Suppose you sell "Crime stories and Thrillers" in a book store... you can add the text "Visit my crime section" to your post in the usual way.

Now select your text and click on the link icon (little globe with chain link).

This will present you with the link window with the http prompt.

Paste in your stored address (control/v or right click and paste) making sure you over-write the existing "http" bit as you have that in your stored version, and "insert".

There you go, all done!
