    I have the same problem with Firefox and Chrome, I cannot make links at all in a post but can make a link without a title if I then comment on my own post. I gave up :)

    < a href="http://themym2012.blogspot.com/">http://themym2012.blogspot.com/

    < a href="http://themym2012.blogspot.com/">http://themym2012.blogspot.com/ > and remove the spaces between < a at the beginning and the / > at the end of the link

    Thanks ufohunterorguk :)
    so to confirm
    if I put < a ref =http://
    (without spaces)
    then the website page I want to insert
    followed by a / >
    (all without spaces)
    then I can post a link.

    the above is wrong i have just noticed its like this:
    < a href="http://theurlyouwanttolink.com/">http://theurlyouwanttolink.com/

    again remove the spaces between < a at the start and a > at the end so they are like this at the end, sorry for the above mistake :)))

    That's ok I will add the " at either end now :)
    Why do I have to write it twice? once inside it all then once outside. Puzzled.

    yes:
    < a href="http://themym2012.blogspot.com/">http://themym2012.blogspot.com/ > and remove the spaces between < a at the beginning and the / > at the end of the link

    A good way to see how the code form is to copy a link from a webpage and post into you page using the visual editor and then switch to html. the code will be displayed for you to see but the above it correct. try it out and then test with the preview option :))

    A text link always has to have some sort of anchor text. You either type in the link in the post or page editor and the use that as the anchor text, or you type in some workds to use as the anchor text and then "link" that text.

    Procedure for inserting a text link into a post or page.

    1. Highlight the text that you want to be used as the "anchor" text for the link.
    2. Click the "Link" button on the toolbar.
    3. Type or paste in the link
    4. Click "Insert into post" or whatever the button is labeled.
