If you copy the link that you want  then hover the mouse over the URL link above the message body and (I follow) the second group ......so write [url=then copy and paste your link]put your hyperlink message here and close with[/url]

I think that should work

try this hyperlink

The 'My Blog' was a hyperlink through to your blog but why did it still show the [/url] after it?
Try putting a space after the My Blog before the close brackets.

I copied your instruction part and sunstituted because I couldn't see how else to use the URL option.
In other forums all you need to do is Type your text, eg MY BLog, highlight it, click URL or hyperlink and paste  in yout link and submit, very easy.

Here and at self sufficientish are the same and I can't do either, I just can't see it at the mo! I'l work it out in the end I expect, but it's not starigth forward

I've just looked at the My Blog hyperlink and can see that you have just typed [/url] twice at the end so one of them still shows

To get it to just read My Blog you have to have the [url=           ] around the link  

[url= your copied link] My Blog [/url]

My Blog

I've done it! I typed it out manually! Is that what you have to do each time?? The links don't do it automatically for you!

I need a drink and it's too early!

Well I have it kinda, it's not underlined!

ETA Done it! What a performance! Thanks Kaz. I had to do it manually, is that right?
