    This is easy – if you know how

    – create the text that you want to contain the URL

    – select it

    – with that text now highlighted, click on the little chain icon in the Visual tool bar above

    – paste or type the URL into the dialog

    – click the Return icon or hit return on your keyboard

    – that’s it….

    Just remember that the link will fail if you simply try to paste a copied url into the regular Create Topic/Reply dialog. For reasons best known to WordPress, you are required to create a URL through the use of the link (chain) icon.
