Default How do I change the wording of a link? but still link to a full URL?

Tried searching for an answer, but couldn't find one.

Basically I want my signature to say "my flickr" and still be a link to my photostream. Rather then having the whole URL visable.

I have seen it in other peoples sigs, but for the life of me I can't figure out how. Thanks in advance

For forums:
[ url = yourlink.com ] Your Text [ / url ]

Without spaces.

For general web ie html, change [ and ] to < and >

In the body of your text you can also just highlight "my flickr" go to the insert link tool and type in your web address and it will automatically just do what cdi suggested.

Copy and paste this into your signature:

[url="http://www.flickr.com/photos/10755516@N03/"]My Flickr[/url]
