How to hyperlink individual words

I can see how to insert links to web pages in posts, but how do I attach hyperlinks to individual words, e.g. click here takes you to http://www.englishforum.ch ?

I suspect it's obvious but I can't work it out . Many thanks.

Re: How to hyperlink individual words

Another way to link individual words is to use the HTML-inspired forum syntax:

(url=http://www.englishforum.ch)English Forum Switzerland(/url)
results in English Forum Switzerland if you replace the () parentheses with [].

(The code tag is meant to prevent any formatting but it keeps transforming the correct [] syntax to the resulting link)

Re: How to hyperlink individual words

Reviving an ancient thread to ask why the forum has suddenly started creating random hyperlinks on posts.

One of my posts contained the word "target" which, when I submitted it, linked to a website of some homeware shop in the US called Target. I couldn't break the hyperlink so put a "." in the word. What gives?

I think it's something your end. There are no links in your post, so i suspect you've got something in your browser that's adding the links when it loads the pages.

Try using a different browser, or run some virus checking software, or both.

Re: How to hyperlink individual words

Skimlinks. They've been on EF for about a year or so (or that's when we noticed). It seems some sections are more prone than others.

I see the link in Sandgrounder's post and the post quoting her.

I think some ad blockers will get around this, which might be why not everybody sees them.

Ah yes, now I remember. Personally I feel that using the Internet without ad blockers is akin to having malware installed anyway.
