    Do it like this:
    [url=

    Then the link.

    Then end bracket immediately following the url.

    Then write "that thread" or whatever.

    Then type /url in brackets.

    In the upper right corner of the reply box, there is an icon that switches between the editor modes. The simple text mode shows the codes, such as [url ] for formatting output. The graphical mode does not show the codes - you can use this button to make a link.
