Making URLs on Posts Clickable??

I thought I knew how to make a URL clickable on
a post, as it was just discussed somewhere here recently. But, it didn't work the way I did it, so I need to be told again. It might be nice to have a Help section on the header of the main page, that gave instructions on things such as this. Another video forum has a check-box just above Submit, that activates an automatic parsing of all URLs in a message, to make them clickable.

Hi Steve,

We do have a brief section on the codes, here, in the DV Info FAQ. The other forum uses different software, so that is not an option for us, but it would be nice if it did. Future versions of the software may contain such a feature, we'll just have to wait and see.

Basically it works like this:

{url=http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/}linked text{/url}

or to make an address clickable:

{url}http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/{/url}

Substitute {} for [] in the above examples. If I had used the lower case brackets the links would have been hot and you would not have been able to view them. Note, there are no spaces in the tags.

I always use the lower case brackets, with no problems
so far.

You must use lower case brackets for the links to work. If I had used lower case brackets, the links would have worked and Steve would not have been able to see the code to know how it works.
