Converting URL into Text

Postby Compassionate Centrist Christians » Wed Jan 27, 2021 6:47 am

Hi all,

I was hoping someone can tell me how to take a link from another thread and make it into text. I see people doing this all the time and it's a lot more aesthetic to have them click on a link that says what it actually is instead of a URL. I wanted to post a mental health thread and include the thread for resources to suicide prevention.

Thanks!

Silvedania, the majestic nation.
NS Stats are mostly accurate except for a few things, like this nation is capitalist and the death penalty isn't in effect

News:All trade with Crabaiaia and Pikala has stopped as diplomats meet in Trenaka.  Silvedanians are confused by Quentin Tarantulatino's new film, Seasonal Snackbox(This is a Bojack Horseman reference.) Weird song goes viral for making no sense.

Don't. The position of the Mods is pretty clear on this:

Katganistan wrote:We have had mental health threads before, which have devolved into players suggesting others should self-harm, and none of us are trained mental health workers. For the safety of everyone involved, it was decided that such threads should not exist.

Redundant in light of this thread.
