Active link in post [Solved!]
I thought it would display the code in the quote. How and ever, I am placing the code below with the active link opener and closers, i.e. bracket a bracket & bracket /a bracket.
href=”http://thesleepymoose.wordpress.com/” title=”NOT WORKING ” target=”_blank”>
This mightn’t be explained as well as it should be, so if you have any questions, just ask. Or if you can explain this more clearly, please do. – Mús
Here is the support document about adding clickable links to a post or page:
The key to making text into a clickable link is:
Highlight the text you want to link.
In html the link should look like this:
If you want the link to open in a new window:
<a href="http://URL_OF_LINK" target="_blank>LINK_TEXT</a>
you must have the opening and closing “a” tags.
Thank you, you are corrent, but the problem still lies with the “link creator button” when writing a post.
It gives the following code
href="http://thesleepymoose.wordpress.com/" title="NOT WORKING " target="_blank">
So by adding
as the link text, it makes it obsolete and so doesn’t display in the page/post.
(I just realised how to post code here. Trial and error – one of the best ways to learn anything ;) )
I don’t understand what you mean or what you’re trying to do. As Tess said, the linking text must be typed in the editor, then highlighted; then you click the link button and paste the URL, tick the new-window option if you wish, and click Add Link. Adding a title is totally optional, and it’s not supposed to be the linking text: it’s an additional description that shows up when you mouse over the link. For example, the linking text might be “click here” and the title “Support doc on adding links”.
Thank you. I understand exactly how it works now. I was clicking Add Link and thinking “title” was the linking text. I guess I’ve just taken another step forward on the path to WordPress enlightenment. Thank you both for your assistance! :)
You are welcome!
We all were newbies once. Even babes without a clue! Life is learning.
The attempt and not the deed confounds us.
