How do you transform a URL to make it look as a "this" link?


Example: I have this URL: [ppp]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=df3dr3cDOfo[/url]. I think I should transform it into [ppp=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=df3dr3cDOfo]this[/url], where ppp stands for url. Am I right?

Do you mean here, on LQ?
I use the Insert Link toolbar button (the globe with a link)
1. Highlight the text (ppp)
2. Click the toolbar, which presents a dialogue box.
3. Paste the url into the dialog box.
[URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=df3dr3cDOfo"]ppp[/URL]
to get ppp

The bbcode to embed a URL is the following, if that's what you're asking:

Code:
[url=https://www.linuxquestions.org]LinuxQuestions.org[/url]
