Choices for the links These are the methods I use

  1. Paste the URL directly in http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2036349/HP-Sauce-revolt-Online-fury-salt-cut-ruins-taste.html?ito=feeds-newsxml This doesn't always work especially if there are 2 underscores in (it changes the bit inbetween them to italics instead)

  2. Type the words: Click Here and then highlight them and then click on the globe and paste the URL in the box that pops up which will change the words Click Here to the link. Or you can highlight any of the words in your post HP Sauce for instance.

  3. Change your link to a tiny one and paste that in, in either of the above methods http://tinyurl.com/3b5vzcr

It is important to have the http:// once at the front or it won't become a link

In the box that pops up there is also an extra you can do. If at the end of your url that you have pasted in you put "HP Sauce" that means type the "s as well as the words, when you then hover your cursor over the link in a post you will get a popup optional title Your URL needs to end with a / and then you do a space and then type in "HP Sauce"

You can test all the above without having to actually Post by checking in the preview box that your links work and your popup optional title displays when you hover cursor over the link

You can also manually edit the text you want as the optional title if you scroll down to bottom of the compose box where it is displaying the link 1 in square brackets

I stopped buying HP when they moved production to the Netherlands, I now use Asda's own, or if I'm feeling flush I buy Stokes Brown Sauce from Booths

thats the spirit alan perhaps if we all had done that it just might have made a difference. as for stokes brown sauce ,never heard of it but there is a booths quite near to us 20mile so might just nip down and grab a bottle.

Shouldn't the reporter in wiz-king link this one

be back at school. I thought school holidays were over?

We are currently experimenting with Branston brown sauce at the moment. I think a few more bacon sandwich tasting tests before I make a decision.
