How do you use links?

I know of two of two other websites that i can do easily but the link coding here is confusing

Also im told to use polls on the polls section & not the fourm section

Ok but when i went to go look. No multi answers were available

click the link button and paste your url in the text box that comes up




Or else paste the URL directly in the message box, highlight it with your mouse and then click the same URL button above.

You'll get this:
[url]url goes here[/url]

if you want to share an image, do know that some images you find on the web can be quite large.
in that case, it's easier to just download the image and then upload it (CR will convert to a size that fits)

Be sure you click the "New Poll" button instead of "New Topic" (just like you were doing). CR isn't smart enough to automatically create the topic as a Poll, even when you are in the Polls forum; you still need to specify that you are starting a poll topic.

It allows you to provide a clickable link to a web page, for example, a youtube video or a news article, or even to something here on CR, such as episode 1 of a random show such as if you click here: /random/anime.
