I have noticed that inside many posts on gamedev people have links to websites that are active HTML links that work. How do I accomplish this? For example...typing http://www.yahoo.com just shows up as text and does not work as a link.

You need to type out the full html for the link, like this:


<a href="http://somewebsite.com">clicky text</a>



Obviously put your own website address in there, and the clicky text can be anything you like.

It seems too that when doing html links, if the address that you specify is not preceeded by http:// then it will not work

eg.
<a href="www.yahoo.com>here</a>

resolves to something like this:
