Hey LB66. Do you mean a link from another website?
Or
A link from another post?
Or
A link within a post I.e. me copying your text or original post?

If its an address to a website page then on an ipad i think you hold your finger down in the box that the address sits in and then click copy on the pop up box...then place the cursor on your post and keep finger pressed down again and click paste.....i think..i dont use an ipad the wife does..

For starters I’d like to post a link to other websites.

Ok do what Blackadder said.

Open the page you want to link to.

Go to the address bar
Hold your finger down on it and up will pop up a box that says ‘copy’ press on it and will have copied the address.

Then when you are writing a post hold your finger down on the place you want to put the link and up will pop a box. Chose ‘paste’ and it’ll drop the link text on the page.

It’s that simple :D

Just dont post ebay links as we dont allow those due to our own auction house...and also links to other forums are also removed as its direct competition to ours....

The simplest of tasks can sometimes be so challenging to figure on different platforms. Sometimes even on the one that you are familiar with. Bleedin' technology, how did we ever manage without it? :-/ =))

Before forums and internet people of like minds met at gatherings face to face, perhaps in a pub debated and agreed or disagreed over a few pints, any serious disagreement normally sorted outside behind the pub.......lol

Much more civilized now.........isn't it?

Kind regards

Also sorry to original OP if off topic, all these different platforms can be challenging and always an answer if a question asked ::g
