adding links directly in page text
I’m not sure I understand your question: what else can a link be if not some text you click on? Perhaps we could clear this up if you give us an example: a couple of webpages you want to link to, and what exactly you’d like your page to display.
It would be easy to follow WordPress instructions if it was just one legislator, but I want to link to sites where anyone from any state can find addresses for all their representatives. (e.g. http://www.senate.gov)
Sorry if my question came out as confused as I felt. WordPress seems to want you to link within a sentence, (e.g. “click on this link to reach ______”, where the address is connected to the phrase “this link”) or something like auxclass wrote (where you click on the name). I want to list senate.gov and writerep.house.gov and others where you can reach both senators and reps.
I hope this clarifies a bit. Thanks.
Then use the instructions in the link I gave – just paste in the link as plain text into your Post or Page – then follow the instructions to make the plain text a link – no need to have Senator Mud Head and the link hidden if you don’t want to –
Thanks! With your help I seem to have figured it out. I’d been to that support page last night, tried what they said, but it didn’t look right. I didn’t want to publish until I knew it was o.k.
It’s earlier tonight so I’m less tired. With your second encouragement I tried again. Still looked strange on the compose screen, but looks great on the actual page.
Think I’ve resolved problems on anything that’s essential to my blog so I shouldn’t frustrate the helpful Forum members with my ignorance for a while at least Thanks again..
You be welcome & good luck
PS – the different look from the editor screen to the published look is what the “Preview” button is for. So you can check the look of a Post before publishing it.
