Just FYI, the long URLs that Yahoo uses are temporary and don't always work. If you want to cut & paste a link from the file section into a message, you need to first copy the folder URL from the header before you click on the file, and then append the file name.

For example, if you are looking at a file called PVR501.txt in the "PVR" folder, you would first copy the folder name, which is...

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jp1/files/3.%20Device%20Codes/PVR/

Then you would tack the file name (ie, PVR501.txt ) onto the end, like this:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jp1/files/3.%20Device%20Codes/PVR/PVR501.txt


Furthermore, if you'd like to hide most of the URL and just display the file name, like this: PVR501.txt or this: click here, here's how you do it.

Put a [url= before the URL name and put a ] after it, then type in the file name, or any other text such as "click here", and follow this with a [/url].

IMPORTANT: Don't leave a space between the end of the URL and the ] or the code won't work and will look like this...

[url=http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jp1/files/3.%20Device%20Codes/PVR/PVR501.txt ]click here[/url]
