    How To Post A Link

    This tutorial will help show you how to put a link (or hyperlink) inside a post. More importantly it will show you how to make a word or a sentence within your post become the link, instead of posting a long link in the traditional copy & paste manner.

    If you do not know what a link is, it is a clickable shortcut to another website, or for instance another article here at The Pit or a recipe at Amazing Ribs. Anything you need to reference can be placed as a link as a convenience to those reading your post. As always, please keep the guidelines of The Pit in mind when deciding what to link to.

    The following pictures will walk you through the process.
    Note that the text explaining each picture is on top of the picture.

    To begin, open up the Advanced Editor on the comment window. This is the "A" on the upper-right of the reply window (red arrow). The advanced editor also will allow you to change things such as font size, type, and to add bold or italics as well. You can also post videos through the Advanced Editor, but that is a subject for another tutorial!

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 1b.jpg Views:	1 Size:	72.3 KB ID:	22378

    You can finish typing out your reply until you're finished. You may also type your post and the open the Advanced Editor, the order here doesn't matter. You can see I have typed out some sample text here.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 3.JPG Views:	1 Size:	73.2 KB ID:	22379

    After you have decided which sentence you want to make the active link, you need to highlight it.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 5b.jpg Views:	1 Size:	76.1 KB ID:	22397

    After you've done this, you can then click the "Link" button in the Advanced Editor (red arrow & circle).

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 5c.jpg Views:	1 Size:	75.3 KB ID:	22381

    You will then see this popup.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 6.JPG Views:	3 Size:	52.6 KB ID:	22384

    In the box labeled URL is where you paste your target link, or the website you want to link people to.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 6b.jpg Views:	1 Size:	53.0 KB ID:	22385

    If you know how to copy or save a target link, you can skip these nest couple pictures.

    Find the website you want to link. (You really should open up a new tab or a new window to do this. If you navigate away from the page on The Pit where you're currently at while making this post, you may lose all of your progress and have to start over. If this happens, do not fear. Simply pour another shot of whiskey or glass of wine and start over)

    Here I am linking to Meathead's Burger Glop recipe. I open a new tab, go to either AmazingRibs.com or The Pit, and search for it. When I find the correct page in the search results, I go to it. Once there you can simply highlight the URL, or web address, in the address box. Right click and then "Copy".

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 4b.jpg Views:	1 Size:	88.5 KB ID:	22386

    Another method is to find the search result and right click on IT (the link you want) instead of going to the page itself and click "Copy link location". This works the same and is often quicker depending on your computer skills.

    Then paste this copied link or URL (web address) into the URL box from the above pic as shown here. the URL box will be filled with the address you copied, sometimes it is a very long string of nonsensical letters and numbers as you can see here. This is the actual link to Meathead's Burger Glop recipe page, and what it looks like when posted:

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 7.JPG Views:	1 Size:	54.2 KB ID:	22387

    Click OK. You are taken back to your post, and the word or sentence that you initially highlighted to become the link will now be underlined and blue. This tells you the setup worked.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 8.JPG Views:	1 Size:	63.0 KB ID:	22388

    If you forget to highlight a word or sentence in your post FIRST, when you click OK to setup the link, it will simply place the full link into your post as you see here:

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 9.JPG Views:	1 Size:	47.2 KB ID:	22389

    If you set it up correctly, once you post your reply or your topic, the link you made will become red (as you see below). The red word or sentence is now a clickable link for everyone who reads your post.

    Job well done!

    Click image for larger version  Name:	link tutorial 10.JPG Views:	1 Size:	57.2 KB ID:	22390

    If you want to make sure someone sees your post you can tag him or her. Just type @ then the first few letters of the user name, and often, depending on your browser, the list of similar names will pop up, then you can select the name from the list if there's a list. If there's only one name that matches then it's easier. lschweig HawkerXP

    If the username has a space in it you can select it from the list, which makes it easier.

If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear


The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

The Undisputed Champion!


The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages


We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone


GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker


The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker


Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine.
