Sorry for being ignorant, Embarassed but I don't know how to link caches or websites when sending emails. Does anyone have any info on where a person could go to find out how to do this Question My knowledge is limited when it comes to computer operation and I normally end up just putting the cache or the site on the email without being able to make it "linkable".

Any help would be much appreciated.

If you are talking about emails (not the forums), then usually most email clients will know that it is a link if you start it with http:// .

For example, http://www.mngca.org instead of www.mngca.org

Many nowadays will recognize www.mngca.org as a link as well, but if you always start it with http:// then you're safe.

Another thing I learned a while ago is that if you have a long link that ends up on two lines, putting < and > around the link will help keep it together so the person can just click on it. For example, <http://www.mngca.org>.

If you're talking about doing this on the forums (here), then move your cursor over the underlined URL on the top-right of the page when you are creating a post and it will give you an example of how to make a clickable link.
