Enter URL


Enter the URL you want to have opened. When people hit this button while using the board, it will open the link you specify in a new web browser tab. On mobile devices depending on your settings this may launch a different web browsing application. You can test your link by hitting the "open in a browser tab" link to see what will happen. When you are finished, hit "Close".
