Answers didn't address missing links
What exact link are you trying to put in? Not all links work here, for security reasons. I see you successfully put in the link to http://getoveryouselfnkm.wordpress.com/2010/06/05/get-over-yourself-a-memoir/ is there anything you’re doing different this time?
Are you putting the link on a word? By that I mean, are you using anchor text like this to put the link on, or are you just putting it in by itself and connecting it with nothing in the post?
wow, the code disappeared in my reply to you, so now I am really confused. can’t up date link anywhere
OK, I have figured out that neither the visual editor nor the text editor will put in a link. it is there when I return, but not showing on the page from the text editor.
That’s because you didn’t type any clickable text. You should type “Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Mushrooms” in the main edit box, highlight it, then click the Link tool and paste the URL. What you did was paste that text in the Title field instead; but the title of a link isn’t the visible, clickable text, it’s (optional) extra info that shows up when you hover over a link (so one can tell what the link is without having to click it).
if you look, you will see a partial link of some kind that I just entered. I put this in the text editor via link button. it asked for url— which I copied and pasted and then for Title- which I gave. at least the text editor is posting it, but is is completely wrong. It looks like the code is wrong, but the text editor did not process correctly; This is what I got instead of the title with the url I want
Well, links don’t start with f, for one thing.
To post code here in the forum and have it display, you must put it between backticks, those little marks usually on the same key as the ~. Backtick, all the code, backtick. Then we can look at it.
OK, I apologize. I reread your instructions and got it all done. I was missing a step by depending on the editor. Thanks ever so much for your help
thank you both for your time and effort. Made me re-look at it and get it done. Appreciate the help
You’re welcome, glad you got it working.
