How do you insert html code into a forum post ?

Does anyone know how to put html code (the <a href etc ...) into a forum post for anchor text ?

It only says "add comment" on the page, and nothing else.

There is a name box, email box, and comment box.

The actual html code shows up when I try to post it. I have viewed the page source of others, who use the <a href etc .... format.

Very frustrating!

Thank you.

It depends on the forum. In most forums PhPBB code is used and html code will not work. Your best option to insert a link with anchor text is to go "Advanced". In this, forum, for example, you would click the "Post Reply" button to go advanced.
