Length of links to other stes. « on: November 12, 2019, 02:27:40 PM » Author: Mandolin Girl
Would it be possible to insert a link to an external site like Tiny URL so that posters find it easy to reduce the length of links.?

So do I, but for those folk who don't know the trick a button to create a smaller URL would be good.

Yes still do not know how to put links in despite being told how its done, I for one find PCs as the most un-friendly items using abbreations which do not explain what they are....its easier to do my linking to find an image and placing it next to the one I am talking about on remarks....how you do other links...give up I just do not know?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh?Huh???
