How To ...
Hints and Tips.............
We have a specific page for sailing hints and tips where you might find what you want if it isn't here. Failing that you can always put a request for help on the club forum where someone will provide you with an answer, I am sure.
This page will help you with those things you want to do but don't know how to. If you want to see something specific on this page or have a suggestion please let us know.
I want to put a hyperlink in my forum message
so that when someone clicks on the link they go to that link directly in their browser.
In the bravenet window where you would normally type your message you need to put some 'commands' around the text you want to be the link. Command are enclosed in angled brackets - .

There is a great article
There is a great article here
If you want to be really clever a small modification can make the link open in a new browser tab or window (depending on which browser you use). The end result looks the same on the forum but the command needs a little bit of modification to:
To make your life easy it is often easier to cut and paste the address you want to link to rather than potentially mis-type it. You can cut an address using the Ctrl+c keys together and paste it using the Ctrl+v keys together.
