    The only way I know of is you have to select the bit of text you want to turn into a link, then above the text box, there is a link button, you click that and fill out the details and it will make a link for you.

    There are 1000+ links, I can't do like that, I'm sure there must be some plugin, otherwise how can yahoo answers and youtube make text link into live links.

    Any one feeling generous to help me.

    Thanks

    You can do it very easily using excel using the "concatenate" function - PM me if you need a sample file.

    Use 5 columns, starting at A1

    The first column has the
    Code:
    <a href="
    , copy this to as many rows as you have urls

    The second column has the urls that you copy from the text file

    The third column has
    Code:
    ">
    , copy to all rows

    The fourth column has the text you want to use for each url - or if you want, you can re-copy the url list here if you don't have separate text.

    The fifth column has
    Code:
    </a><br>
    , copy to all rows

    Now go to the 6th column (column F), use the excel funtion (fx), choose text -> concatenate, enter the cells from A1 to E1, one after another.
    Copy that to all rows.

    That will create the html code for urls, in text format.

    Copy the details from column F to a notepad file, and rename that as htm.

    Open it in your browser to verify that you have got clickable urls.

    Now, use that to copy / paste to Wordpress.

    or u can do search/replace regular expressions using editplus.
    If you want, you can pm me the file and I will send them back to u as html links which u can then post in wordpress.
