[url="LINK GOES HERE"]WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT GOES HERE[/url]

That should do'er. (Don't forget those quotation marks. You need them.)

Actually, I think I was wrong on the quotation marks for BBCode....

[url=LINK GOES HERE]WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT GOES HERE[/url]

That should do'er.

For instance:

this page

Yeah, that's it.

Ok, I was making progress with the link as text.... I edited 4 times now it says I can no longer edit....

I was hoping to add links to an extensive timeline in Data Dump.

hmmm.... I really don't want to be much of bother, so is there a way i can get more than 4 edits?

yes or no will do it, and I will go from there.

There shouldn't be a limit on the number of edits, but there is a 24-hour window for editing a post.
