Although it's pinned to the top, I think this thread should be given some notice again.

By jove I think I've got it.....
THIS is a much better way to link than this: http://www.seniorsonly.club/threads/hyperlinking.1588/
When you use this kind of a link, you don't break the sentence, and it also looks a lot better than this http://www.seniorsonly.club/threads/hyperlinking.1588/page-2#post-89330 kind of a link.
That's true, Ken. But I think the hyperlinks don't always stand out enough in the text. Some posters may not recognize the hyperlink, unless it's named "CLICK ON THIS!!!!" or something.
They stand out the same way they do anywhere else on the Internet - highlighted in a different color.
Well, maybe it's my monitor but the color difference is minimal.
I agree with this. Even though it is in a different color, just one word of a slightly different color in a post is not always that noticeable. Sometimes people change font color for expression in the post or some other reason, so it does not always designate that it is a link, like having the “real link address “ shows you.
Also, when it is just a changed word, you can not see what website you are going to, and I dislike that immensely. If there is a link to a website in a post, I want to know what website it is before I click the link and go there.
I understand that It does take up more room, and probably does not have eye-appeal either, but I still prefer it.
I don't care about the space that it takes up, but it is is very unattractive, it breaks the train of thought in a thread, it makes the forum look like a link farm, and the search engines hate because they view them as unprofessional which, in turn, doesn't help in search engine optimization. The Internet has been around for quite a while now and links have been done that way forever, the only difference being that browsers used to display them as underlines, which also looked bad. Most modern browsers will display the underline only when your mouse hovers over the link. The links within a post are exactly the same as the link that takes you to each thread, to begin with, and people manage to find them easily enough. I used to edit posts to use proper linking, but I can't keep up with that.
Does that mean that @Beth Gallagher and I are banned for non-compliance, @Ken Anderson ?
Hyperlinking is rather fiddly @Ken Anderson. But I will persevere.
