...without showing the whole darn link letters and address etc etc. Most of you seem to manage to put up "clickety". I find posting links a little tedious, so could someone show me how to do this, as I'm a complete fossil.

So if I link clickety how do I change to just clickety or whatever title I feel appropriate?

Thanks, PP

Type your word (clickety or whatever), highlight it, which could be easier said than done on a phone or tablet, then click the chain link button above the text field and copy the link address in there.

Try it on your PC / laptop. It's quite tricky on iPad.

I tried to follow what you said, and normally get the hang of things but this I couldn't!  I got lost doing the whole thing.  Can you break it down more?  Cheers.
