New Editor Format - Can't figure it out.

Discussion in 'Announcements, Feedback, Issues, & Guides' started by cluckcluckluke, Sep 10, 2013.

  1. How do I put a link into words???

    I used to be able to do it but they changed the format of the editor so I can't find out how to do it anymore.

    Like put say this link https://www.backyardchickens.com/ into the words BYC ???
