How Do I:

Assume that I am in the Farmall Cub forum and that I am responding to a question. I want to refer the author to a segment in one of Rudi's manuals. What is the procedure needed to allow the author to click on a segment of my answer and be taken directly to the manual? Thanks, Dan

Dan, when you go to one of Rudi's manual pages, the internet address for that page is displayed in the address bar at the top of your browser. If you copy that address and post it in your reply it will take the person to that page. To do this, first you copy the address from the address bar, The easiest way to do this is to point your cursor arrow in the window and click on it. It should highlight the entire address. Then hold down your control key and push the "c" key on the keyboard (called a Control/c) This copies the address and temporarily stores it in your computer.
Then when you reach the point in your response message to the posted message where you want the link to be, click on the box above the message window that has URL in it. You will see brackets in your message. Then hold down the control key and press the "v" key. This will paste the address into your message. Then click on the "Close Tags" or click on the url box again to close it. You should see the address of the manual page in your message between the bracketed url boxes like this.

[url]manual page address[/url]

Now you're done!

Thanks, BD. I will give that a try and be back in touch if I have problems. Dan
