Many times, I see links that stretch beyond the natural margins of a typical computer screen. This causes anyone reading to have to scroll back and forth to read a post that happens to be on that particular page. Here's how to avoid that:

1. Just below the dialog box used to type your post, there's a set of links under "Instant UBB Code". First, copy the address box from the URL address screen at the top of your browser.
2. Now, in the Instant UBB Code, click on URL. A dialog box will appear. For me, it's in the upper left of the screen.
3. Paste the copied address into the dialog box and click OK.
4. Another dialog box will appear. Type in a description such as "Link" or "Click Here" or whatever you prefer and click OK.

You will find in the dialog box that you have started your post the URL address that will end in whatever it was that you chose to describe the link such as, "Link". When you click on Continue to review your post, the link will be hilited. Hope this helps!
