Re: Posting How To - Examples

Including links

If you copy and paste a recognizeable link (URL) into a post, it will be automatically converted to a real link. If the link is very long, then it will be truncated, but the actual link will remain untouched.

»www.cnn.com
»www.linkedin.com
»ftp://ftp.wustl.edu

The above links were recognized after I typed

http://www.cnn.com
https://www.linkedin.com
ftp://ftp.wustl.edu

Any links that refer to dslreports.com or broadbandreports.com are treated specially, and the domain name is stripped off. Additionally, if the link is a common one, a full name is substituted!

But they will still work as per normal. In addition, if the link is a FAQ entry or another topic on the forums, the TITLE of the FAQ entry or forum topic is automatically included for you.

If a link does not convert properly, or you wish to supply your own title, you can use plain html
<A HREF="http://www.cnn.com">CNN news site</A>
 
CNN news site
As above.

Attaching Files

You can include with your post an attached file. The file is displayed along with the post and is available for download if a viewer so chooses.

Normally, files are ZIPPED, before they are available for download. Unless the file is an image, or already a ZIP file. This saves on bandwidth, and also ensures that users viewing posts do not accidently click on an attachment that is an executable of some kind and have it run before they notice what is happening.

I've attached a file to this post. It is the notepad EXE from windows. I've also given it a caption.
