    How to rename a link?

    Sometimes I see here something like "tap here" and then it takes you to a site or where that link takes to.
    How to do it?
    Thanks in advance!

    You embed the link within the text. There’s two globe icons above the text box. You use the one on the left to add the link, the globe with the red X removes the link, if needed. So highlight the text you want the link within, tap on the left globe icon, paste link there. Hit submit. You’re done.

    Note you’re not changing the link or renaming it, just putting a hyperlink within text. Renaming a link would be something web devs or website admin do.

    When I tap the regular globe and then paste there the link it does nothing.
    Can you maybe do it step by step? (Step 1>step 2> step 3...)

    You have to have the link on your clipboard first.

    So if I want to embed a link to the forum rules, for instance.

    1. Go to the page you want to link to, select the URL and copy (using whatever method your operating system allows).

    2. Type out your post.

    3. Select the text you want to become the link.

    4. Hit that globe item and paste the copied link into the pop up box, then click Ok.

    Alternatively, you could type out the whole thing including the BBCode as:
