    I can, using a little bit of html, but it is impossible to post the instructions on here without it getting all muddled up!

    If you send me a friend request and give me your email addy, I may be able to help.

    Hi phoenixx,
    When I make a hyperlink on here and then try to Edit comment, say I wanted to add some more info, then when I click submit again, the link will only show with the complete html.

    I am wrong, it comes up as Page cannot be found.

    They must have taken the page down to change the menu. Lol!

    or you got the URL wrong – take the “/” off after the .html and it will work fine.
