html links

Ever want to post a link to a web page but don't want it to look like a bunch of code?
Maybe you don't understand the code in the first place. (I won't tell.)

Let's say you want to post the following link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFLs9RI8mSA

Not attractive. And, depending on where you paste it, sometimes it won't even function as a link.

What if you could create a link that looks like this:

Small is Tall

And, more importantly, when someone clicked, it actually worked as a link?

Let's keep it extremely simple. Type or copy the text below:



Then replace page.html with the URL of the destination web page.

Also replace Label Text with whatever text you want the reader to see instead of the actual link.

In this example, the link would look like this:





That's it!

(Keep in mind, some websites, forums and blogs restrict the use of html code. For instance, wordpress.com allows this html link code in comments, but blogger only allows simple html code, like bold and italics.)

I just decided this week to leave my WFMW post in my comments. I am never quite sure how to do it properly, so I open up a new post on my blog and type in my link name, then use the little link button and paste in the URL. Then I copy that and post it in the comment sections. It keeps me from making too many mistakes lol

Have a fabulous day!
