I had always wondered how some get it right to do a url link like read here
and the code behind it.
Using URL's (Internet links)
To get the url codes use this button
"[url ][/url ]" you will get this. replace the 1st ']' after url with '='
[url =http://somesite/]Site Name[/url ] (leave out spaces in the  brackets)
[url =http://www.biblegateway.com/]A searchable online bible
[/url ] will give you thisA searchable online bible
You can also do something like;
[url =http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%203:16&version=50]John 3:16
This givesJohn 3:16
This one is funUsing the [iurl ][/iurl ] feature
means in line url and will open in the same window.
In your profile - Forum Profile Information, in your signature highlight and Copy + insert this code:
action=pm;sa=send;u=nn]Send me a Personal message[/iurl]
Replace the u=nn with the 2 or 3 digit number you will see in the address bar, this is your user number.
Click Change profile and you're done, simple
You can also provide a shortcut to view all your posts like this;
action=profile;u=nn;sa=showPosts]Check my Posts[/iurl]
You can also use the iurl on links you post in a similar way
Click the insert hyperlink which gives [url ][/url ] (no spaces) then simply insert an "i"
[ iurl][ /iurl] or [ iurl =http://link]title or name of link
The iurl opens in the same window and allows the user to navigate back and forward.
Remember, no spaces in the [ ] brackets else it will not work.
P.S. Feel free to add tips to this topic (don't post to say thanks, You're welcome)
