If only I could remember how to do links! Does it still involve writing href something? As I only have my giffgaffed bb with opera mini 4 I am not sure if I can do links? Help please, thanks guys!

@James - that's what I though, hence caps not being available. By all means, take it - I have a few more which I will look out.

@nsp - you can just go to and enter the link, hit customize and enter your own version. For the forums, just enter http:// at the start.
