    Link text?

    I can't see an option to show alternative text when I post a link (just link type, protocol and URL), but some manage it e.g. when including a link to how to post an Auto-Scan.

    So what's the trick?

    Or you can use the handy NOPARSE tags, like this:

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    next step is to allow a [/] to close an earlier tag so i'm not misspelling code and quote all the time
