    making a URL into text?

    Searched for how to do this but since I don't know what it's called..... no results.

    Is there a way to make a url look nicer? Like instead of url below it would say Here's a song ...and that is clicked on? Sorry wish I knew the jargon...thanks for any help.

    Thank you, adnoid, for the visual explanation! I did try the link tool but when previewed it didn't show as yours did. Will c&p your example to word pad for future use.

    That turned out to be alot easier than I ever dreamed! I couldn't figure out how to make a link into text- because I couldn't figure out how to edit the HTML with this editor, but all you have to do is type the text you want, highlight it, and then when it is highlighted, click the add hyperlink button!
