Ron Using the toolbar to create a link works when I am using Internet Explorer but (for me at least) does not work when I am using Firefox. So if I intend to put a link in a posting I need to use IE to login to the website and create the post.
Sorry, I did not see your post until now. I use a word document for making notes for wiki, so it is handy for checking and making links to be posted.
What I do is:
Copy and paste the url onto the word document;
Make sure the curser is at the end of the url and press the spacebar, that should make the url live;
Hover the curser over the live url and right click; a short menu will appear;
Click on 'Edit hyperlink', a dialogue box will open;
At the top of the dialogue box you will see the url and to the left 'Text to Display';
Delete the url and type the text you would like to display.
Sounds a bit complicated but it's not once you have done it!
