    If you'd like to place a link in a post, it is very helpful to shorten it so that the entire URL is not displayed in your post....

    Let's say I'd like to link to an outside webpage. If I just placed the URL in my post, it would look like this:


    http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/product/rv-leveling-blocks/4155

    BUT I could make it look a lot cleaner by doing this:

    [nobbc]Leveling Blocks[/nobbc]

    and here is how it would display:

    Leveling Blocks

    For savvy users from the old site, you'll notice that you no longer need to place the quotation marks around the URL address...messed me up the first time or two [?:~{]

    Thanks for keeping the Portal easy on the eyes!
