How to post links

Post by scimjim » Sun May 03, 2020 7:16 pm

whatever system you use will have an address bar at the top. Some (like this on my iPad) will shorten the address and just show “scimitarweb.co.uk”
99E23372-40E2-4744-8286-514E4A3CBE6A.jpeg
99E23372-40E2-4744-8286-514E4A3CBE6A.jpeg (180.89 KiB) Viewed 2435 times
But if you click on it, you will see the full address
98897406-3A57-4B68-B7A6-BB23F0B14A9D.jpeg
98897406-3A57-4B68-B7A6-BB23F0B14A9D.jpeg (183.77 KiB) Viewed 2435 times
Which you can copy and simply add to a post like this (note that the forum will truncate the address)

http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... hp?t=43017

—————————————-————————————-————————————-————————————-————————————-————————————-————————————-————————————-

If you want to make it look professional, you can create a hyperlink by putting it into a url command.

So type [url= and paste the address, then close the bracket with ]

[url= http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... hp?t=43017]

Add the word you want to display (I’ll use “Here”)

[url= http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... hp?t=43017]Here

Then close the url command with [/url ] (space added so you can see it)

[url= http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... hp?t=43017]Here[/url ]

Quantum physics is simple compared to this, whats an url anyway.I would like to post? photos on another website but can't, or even on this one. Possibly when I master the art of text messaging all will become clear.

For pictures, just use the “Add Files” button.

You don’t strictly need to use the [ url ] code now - a URL is a web address; the bit right at the top of your browser window Some website (like eBay etc) have a “Share” function - and usually a Copy Link button then.

If you know the answer any question is easy, how do you get photo onto puter thingy ? I need to give my insurance co. photos of my car so I take photos, print and deliver by hand since they are local.
The terminology is beyond me, copy,cut, paste,drop,I need a dictionary or will have to stay in my cave.

What sort of computer do you use Pete (is it Microsoft Windows?) and what sort of phone do you use (apple/android/Nokia)?

Turboscim [ Pete ?] , us cave dwellers need to embrace the "machine ". I am told by my Daughter , " your skills are out of date Dad " to which I reply that I have a very particular set of skills , skills I have acquired over a very long career . She will then say some thing along the lines of " having a Liam Neeson day Dad". I am not going to let this " machine" beat me , it may take a bit of time but if I can manage to adjust all the links on my 5a gear change this link thing will be mastered as well . Before they know it Pete we will be leaking , sorry, :lol: linking all over the place . Regards Richard .

My computer is, I think using windows 8 but using keyboard, the main computer uses xp pro. my phone is an ancient nokia 3310 which makes excellent phone calls for £11 a month all in.It would be useful to embrace teckernology but I got lost somewhere. I need to put photo of wrecked cylinder on a website when a piston circlip came out and on a 2 stroke that''s not good Also I found a photo of my scim on the historic g p circuit at silverstone in front of tvr, 911 caterham,sierra cosworth. which I would like to post. the 917k 's and t33's were a bit too quick although the f40 went into the gravel trap trying too hard

Will life be better or worse this is the question ? The challenge at the moment is trying to buy a pink atom ignition unit online, who knows one day I may be able pay rssoc subs by direct debit. Maybe it's easier to install central heating in my cave.
