Sorry if its been asked a zillion times before but how do you all put those links in.

Say for example if I wanted to show you an article from the Times Online HERE how would I do it.

See the note to the side of the box -->

Links The simplest way to insert a link is to enter the link itself, surrounded by [[ and ]]. So if you type, the link will display as If you want your link to display text other than the web address itself, leave a space after the address then add the text before the ]]. So "Look at this page", would display "Look at this page".
