    Hi I was wondering when I post a youtube video to my blog can I add a workable link in the description? So far all I get is text of a link which is only good if its copied and pasted.

    There may be more than one way, but I just use straight HTML.....

    <a href="Insert URL Link here">Insert Text Description here </a>

    Still can't figure out why this board does that.

    ' Text '

    < a href="Link"> Text < /a>

    Delete the spaces after the left carats '<'

  6. The guide for creating links in posts and pages is here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/

    This is the general link model:
    <a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>
    Enter your anchor text you want to link to first. Then use your mouse to highlight that anchor text. Next click the chain icon in the editor and proceed to create the link to that page.
