The essence of the question is indeed in the topic title.
Is it possible to post direct links to other websites?

Vincenzo,

If you click on the animated banner in the lower portion of my post, it opens our AMPS club website in another tab.

Below should be a direct link, using the "url" code, to the same website.

http://www.ampscentralsouthcarolina.org/

Is this what you are asking about?

Depends on what is being linked. Some sites like PMMS disable direct image linking and rightly so because each forum topic view with a direct image link contributes to their total website traffic ($$$).

It is possible; whether it is good practice is another question.

Making the content of one site depending on the survival of another cna give troubles. Just look at the stress the photobucket issue is causing right now.

Jeff had the best answer. Yes you can insert links pointing to pages on other sites. I usually keep my linking on-topic. NO SPAM!
