Dumb question #372: How do I post links to the forum? Or format text?
I've noticed that if I put a URL in a question or comment, it'll show up as a link--e.g., http://deals.woot.com. But I see a lot of commenters adding links with text other than the URL. When I try any HTML-like code, I get a li'l message saying that "HTML is not allowed". Same goes for formatted (bold, italic) text, which I also see in the forum. What am I missing?
