Sounds strange but when i used to post, say a video from youtube
using the home pc i could do this fine, but now i've got a laptop my
links aren't clickable, they have to be copy and pasted into the
address bar, do i have to activate some setting or something?

As you can tell i have great jedi knowledge of computers...... not!

As above. You can also imbed images using [ img ] your picture url here [ /img ] (minus the spaces ofc, otherwise it will display the tags and not the piccy ;P) and other things such as formatting text by subsituting 'b' for 'img' inside the brackets to get bold and also 'i' for italic.

Cool, nice one guys, i knew about the picture one, just couldn't understand why when i copy and paste the link from youtube to put it in a thread it no longer comes up clickable, whereas it did before on the pc, without having to do the [ url ] [ /url ] thing?

but how do I get the above to link to the word......."clicky, press here, look etc" ?

It makes it a llot tidier than a huge link on the page.
SLightly different layout for htis one:

Change the DDD to URL [:)]

PS - if you're dealing with stupidly long URLs (say like a map link from Multimap, they are huge), run them through TinyURL first to make them shorter. See TinyURL's website for more [:)]

You could also use the insert / edit link button on the tool bar, just highlight the word you want to make a Link from and s elect the tool bar button (looks like a link of a chain ) and enter the URL choose whether to open in new window or not etc and thats it.
