    what you want to do is copy the the link from your flickr, then (on this forum) type the word how you want it. Then select the word. Once the word you want is selected click the icon above that looks like a globe with a paperclip over the bottom half. This will open up a dialog box into which you paste the link.

    Voila.

    (if it still doesn't make sense post the link and I'll sort it for ya!!)

    <edit> as far as formatting the word goes to make it blue and purple you have to do that yourself. Easiest to do it before you click the "insert link button" </edit>
