Plenty of people post links to other sites,articles,clips etc but I don't know how to do it please help! Im not very computer savvy!
Go to the site you want to post the link to.
Copy and paste the line from the browser (e.g. http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100319154613AAC5h7Z&r=w#I5VXXDu_C0jcjb y0CNcU) by simply clicking on it with the mouse and then when it goes blue to say it is selected right click and select "copy".
In your answer or question or where you want to put the link, right click where you want to put it and select "paste".
Once you get "advanced" you can forget the right click and copy and right click and paste and simply hold down the CTRL and the C key (for copy) and CTRL and the V key (for paste) instead.

Remember on yahoo you need to be at level 2 to have links work. otherwise they will be as standard text that need to be copied into a browser address bar.
You have to be pass Level 1 to have clickable links on YA.
Three ways to put a link here:
1) From the browser's address field, click inside the field, press Ctrl + A if it doesn't turn to your highlight color, then press Ctrl + C to copy. Return to your post and click inside textbox area. Then press Ctrl + V to paste link.
2) If getting link from a page link, right-click on the link and select "Copy Link Location (may be worded differently depending on browser). Repeat part to paste in post.
3) Type a link directly. Links are preceeded by "http://":
Always include the "/" at the end. Saves a referral call. Some sites are filtered by YA and will not be allowed.
Links From Web Page to Browser Address Field:
Pasting a link from a web page, right-click on the link and select "Copy Shortcut" (IE). Then click inside the browsers address field and press Ctrl + V.
If link is in text only and not an hyperlink, then drag your mouse cursor across the text link to highlight it. Press Ctrl + C to copy it. Then repeat above to paste it into browser's address field.
