been noticing lately that folks' links aren't always easy to see; it's hard to tell the text is blue.  could just be my monitor, though.  I've been getting around it by making my links bold.

Good tip.  I use Firefox, links are showing up in a low contrast blue.

A pet peeve of mine is the yard long URL.  I saw one yesterday that must have been 4 lines deep.

When posting a URL, click the Globe icon.  In your text box will appear:


Pasting or typing your link in between will give you a link with that text

the result of the above: [url=http://www.fark.com]www.fark.com

Add an EQUAL SIGN and your link immediately after the first URL, with alternate text between the brackets will give you this:

The result of the above: [url=http://www.fark.com]Fark

Makes for a tidy post.

I just figured out how to do this.....and am using it all the time now.  Will make the links bold, that's a good idear.  Does the bold command/code go outside the url command?

I've previewed this twice, the top is getting chewed up.
go with the lower method, bold on the OUTSIDE of the URL code
 
Arch enemy? I mean, I don't like you, but I don't think you qualify as "arch enemy". Here, try this tiny ad:
