Re: How to shorten URL ?

I much prefer the following method to bothering with tinyurl.* It only takes a few clicks.

1. Select some text that will be your link (e.g. click here to see...).

2. Click the "Insert Hyper link" toolbar button (Globe with document)

3. Where you see something like this:
* *change it to:
* *That is, just add the equals sign and the URL. The final result will be like this:

* Click here to see me in the desert.


* *

Re: How to shorten URL ?

So Al, what kind of desert are you in? Lime jello? Some sort of pie?

Any web sites that make an URL longer?
