How to link to a previous post
« on: Wednesday 30 November 05 08:30 GMT (UK) »
Forgive me if this has been posted before - but people keep asking & I couldn't find it!

To post a link

For example, if you want a look-up of an earlier census after you rellies have been found in another post.

Highlight the URL of the post you want to link to (ie your old post)

Copy & paste it into the new post
 
Complete your new post - it should have the URL for your old post in a blue hyperlink

If not - use the Modify button on you new post to "mend" it


Hope this is helpful
