Okay, so I'm a LJ virgin. Can anyone point me to some instructions on how to insert a hyper-link into message text (and perhaps rename the link so it actually says the name of the story rather than the whole long http address)?

I'm going nuts reading stuff at CSI Forensics, finding stories I never knew existed. It feels like Christmas in August. Thanks alyse and company.

It's basic html. So you can either do that manually, or if you don't know anything about html, it might be worth downloading a livejournal client. I would recomment semagic, as it has the most features and is the easiest to use, including inserting a link.

If you want to do it manually, you can do so by the following:

[a href="http://www.youraddress.com/"]insert the text here[/a].

The [/a] closes the tag, and tells the browser where the link text stops. Just replace the square brackets with < and >, and make sure you include the full address, including the http:// part, because otherwise livejournal will think it's looking for a site within its own site.

e.g. [a href="http://www.csi-forensics.com/] will look for www.csi-forensics.com. [a href="www.csi-forensics.com/"] will look for www.livejournal.com/www.csi-forensics.com.

Thanks. I downloaded the client. I'll see if I can figure it out. I'm so very new to this whole html stuff. Guess I'll have to learn a little. It can't be harder than law school...can it?
