A "how to" question

I am trying to figure out how to post a link without having to copy paste the entire length of the link, but to use a one word response. frequently, I see someone responding with a link where they say something like "you can find the different types of XXX here", with the word "here" being a different color and the when clicked, takes you to the link.

How is that done?

Thanks

You have to copy the entire link but...

Type the word you want to be the blue link, highlight it, select the insert link button , paste your link in the popup box, click ok.

It will look like this in your post:

but will look like this when submitted:

vBulletin, yes, though there may be some code variations between versions, I don't know.
