Insert content link

  1. How do I insert a link of a content of the website in other pages? I tried to use the "link" option in the text editor and I can choose which url to insert. The "link" gets incorporated in the text version of the web page, that looks cool, but then never shows up as a link. It disappears as soon as I save it. How can I do it?
    I wanted to insert a link to the "contacts" page in the home page but I cannot do it.
    Blog url: http://nesaccessories.wordpress.com/

  2. Are you talking about "contacts" which is a page in your navigation menu? That page is empty except for the title.

    What is the code you are trying to put there?

    Place it between a pair of bacticks here so we can see it.
    backtick illustrated: on U.S. keyboards is the lowercase of tilde next to the key with 1 and !

  3. The basic model for a link in html (text editor):
    <a href="http://LINK/">LINK_TEXT</a>

  4. Thank you very much for your help 1tess!
    I think I asked the question in the wrong way. You see I'm a new user and I didn't see the "attach link" icon in the tool bar!

    How about this question instead?
    I tried to make my website look a little less like a blog. So it would be awesome to remove the backgroung frame around the pages. I'm no talking about changing the color, but definitevely remove it. Can you give me some advice on how to do it?

    And also I was concerned about the "Leave a comment" text box. If people want to contact me they can use the form.

    I thank you very much for your help!

  5. You would need to learn how to edit and write CSS code, and purchase the Custom Design upgrade to change the framing on that theme.

    If you don't want comments on your site, you can Edit the post and disable comments (I believe that's underneath the Write Post box). You can also go to Dashboard->Settings->Discussion and disable comments on all future posts and pages.

  6. And also I was concerned about the "Leave a comment" text box. If people want to contact me they can use the form.

    This page > Settings > Discussion
    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.

    We can also override the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any post or page.

    Note: By default, new blogs on WordPress.com will have the Discussion hidden. You can reveal it by clicking on Screen Options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ on the top right corner of your Admin page, and checking the box that says Discussion so the module is included. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules

  7. re: appearance changes
    As raincoaster said you will need to purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade and then do the required CSS editing. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

  8. Alright I will think about the upgrade. What do you guys recommend? I think without background it would look more professional, but it might be just my opinion.

    Anyway I need to ask you another question. It is about the name of a page and its repetition just below the page bar.
    So, for example, when I open the Home page, I will see "Home" written again in it. Is there any way I can change this setting?

    Thank you very much for your prompt replies!

  9. You guys are AWESOME!
    I'm sorry to bother you once again, but I have several doubts:
    1) my blog's url now is a wordpress.com one, and I wanted it to become a personal .com account. So i will purchase the upgrade. At the same time ,though, I noticed I should change the name of the website and, therefore, the url. How do I do it? Should I do it before or after the upgrade?
    2) Because the website is supposed to be a business one, it would be great to have an email address with the name of the website, so, for example, now the website is "nesaccessories" and the email to be [email redacted]. Is it supported by the upgraded subscription? Easy to do?

    Thank you so much

  10. You can change the name ANY time on Dashboard->Settings->General.

    You can have a custom email if you have a custom domain. It's a bit fiddly but it's doable http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/

  11. Alright! So I was thinking about the 99$ deal. If I purchase it, will I be able to buy 2 domains? I'm asking because I found that there is an available domain with a name that is very similar to the one I would like to own and it would be convenient to own both. Of course only if the URLs redirect to the same content.

    Then I have a question about the email address. I checked on the page you posted that i can link it with my gmail address and all the emails to the [email redacted] will be rerouted to the gmail account. Does this imply anything for the gmail account itself? will it still work as [email redacted]? Does it really take at least one day to be successfully rereouted?

  12. Regarding the name of the website, I explained myself wrong I guess. I mean change the url.
    Now it is nesaccessories.wordpress and I would like it to be blablaaccessories.wordpress. I tried in the account settings page to change the web address but it doesnt work.

    Is there any way to do it? or should I wait untill the domain registration and then change it?

  13. You don't need any upgrades for that. Just go ahead and register a new blog with the URL you want. Then transfer the contents, exporting them from the old blog and importing them into the new.

    Yes, the email takes at least one day to be successfully rerouted. All the emails will go to your gmail, which continues to funciton normally AS WELL AS having the blog emails go there.

  14. Alright I will enable the email asap!

    So, if I receive an email that is rerouted on the gmail account and I reply from there will it show the website email address to the receiver?

    Then I found out an interesting thing. In the slideshows, at the bottom right of the picture, there is a small box with a link that says "view full size image". So far so good. But in some of the pics, that box says something about a canon camera! I checked and doublechecked the pictures, their details, name and nothing. I have no idea how to delete that sentence from there! Could you please help me solve this issue?

    Thank you very much in advance

    But in some of the pics, that box says something about a canon camera! I checked and doublechecked the pictures, their details, name and nothing. I have no idea how to delete that sentence from there!

    See here:

    If your camera includes EXIF metadata, like aperture, lens, and shutter speed, we now show that next to the photo. (You can toggle this off under Settings → Media if you prefer.) http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/07/12/around-the-carousel-again/

  16. Awesome! Now it looks much better!
    Everything looks fine, but, if you browse my blog, on the menu bar, you will notice that all the voices are in black, apart from the search bar. I tried to change the css code, but I could change only the border of the circle or the backgroung color of the circle, but not the color of the magnifying glass symbol itself and now it doesn't show.

    How do I do it?

  17. Post CSS editing questions to a new thread in the CSS forum, where staff will deal with them.

  18. I found and replied to a few of your other questions earlier. Cheers. :)

    Also, yes please start a new thread if you need further help.
