Re: HELP TOPIC: How to post a Hyperlink 




How to create a hyperlink using

WINDOW INTERNET EXPLORER (IE)  




I. Cut/Copy and Paste Method (Easiest)
Unfortunately the method in Firefox & Chrome that causes all the linking problems on the board, is the easiest method to create hyperlinks in IE.  The step by step instructions are as follows.
1.) Open InsideIllini posting window in a IE or a separate IE browser)

2.) Open website you wish to link in another tab (or a separate browser)

3.) Select (highlight) the URL address in the address bar that you wish to link

4.) Right click your mouse and select Copy (or Ctrl + C)

5.) Go to the InsideIllini posting window and right click where you want to create hyperlink

6.) Select Paste (or Ctrl + V) a hyperlink with blue underlined text will be immediately created in the posting window

7.) Complete your post then select Post button

8.) Most importantly, verify that the hyperlink you created works properly after you posted it


II. Drag and Drop Favicon Method
This method is not recommended because you can't drag a favicon across browser tabs.  However, you can drag and drop a favicon across two separate browser windows.  So if you have a larger computer monitor, or don't mind stretching the size of two separate browsers, you can use this method.   I won't give step by step instructions, but to accomplish this method first familiarize yourself with what a "favicon" is in the Firefox instructions above.  Then drag and drop a favicon from one browser window into the InsideIllini posting window located in another browser window.





I distance myself from obnoxious people in real life, why wouldn't I do the same here as well?  So if I don't respond to your post, you're most likely on IGNORE
