link an individual post?
um…if your saying you want to put specific links in a text widget, then yeah, you can do that. just manually add the links you want into the text widget.
I want to type a word like LINK for example and make it so it can be clicked on and connected to a post. Sorry, not real computer savvy.
The instructions for creating links are found here http://support.wordpress.com/links/5/
not quite what i am trying to do. How about this…is there a way to use the ‘recent post’ widget or a similar one that will allow me to pick and choose what posts i want listed?
You cannot edit the coding in the Recent Posts widget. However, you can use a text widget and place the links to any posts you wish in it.
i tried that but am obviously doing something wrong. also, i’d like to use the post name instead of a URL. be patient…just a beginner…lol
does making a post sticky place it at the top in the “recent posts” widget?
Firefox extension that will make it easier for you.
“firefox 2/3 html link tutorial” > http://tinyurl.com/9bsdzh
That site “Tech Line” that you gave me the link to is the same theme as I use and puts links on the sidebar exactly as I am trying to figure out how to do. On the right sidebar where it says “email subscription” with text and a link under it….how do I do that???
It’s a called HTML link another word for this is (Hyper LInk)
I use the “Copy as HTML Link 1.1” Firefox extenion then I paste
the HTML code into a text widget.
Here is a direct link to the Firefox extension > http://tinyurl.com/2w6all
Here is a short video I made so you can see the extension in action
& understand how to use it. Video Link > http://tinyurl.com/9ssde4
If you decide to use the Firefox add on please check out the tutorial
link in my above post.
Here is a second option to making Hyper links:
(this option requires using the wordpress editor)

Your welcome!!! :-)
Also please consider linking your name for future forum questions so we can
determine what blogging platform you belong too.

OT: Teck, Just out of curiosity, is there a special reason you’re using tinyurl?
To make the URL shorter because the forum links etc are some times long
it’s actually a Firefox, extension.
Why ? is it against the forum rules or something ?
P.s. If another blogger has the extension enabled on their Firefox browser
they can hover over the link & see a display of the actual link.
Nah, there’s no special reason, I mean, I don’t know about others, it’s just that I’m kinda wary of links that don’t show the full URL of the page they’re pointing to. I know there’s no “danger” here, especially when you’re one of the helpful members providing the links, it’s just that I found it kinda weird… that’s all.
Don’t mind me, it’s Monday and I guess I drank one cup of coffee too few.
ok i linked my name. thanks again
I’m also weary of links That’s why I don’t usually click hyper links or tiny url’s
If your interested in having the extension so you can see the actual links here
on the forums, websites, twitter, then I highly recommend downloading the Firefox extension
from the developers website since Mozilla has a outdated version on their extension
The extension on the dev’s site is version 2.0
which allows you to post short links from any
of the Short URL site providers.
List of the sites the extension allows link posting from.
* Bit.ly * Is.gd * Rurl.org * Shrunklink.com * Tinyurl.com * Tiny.pl * Wapurl.co.uk
Here is a article about the Tiny URL creator version 2.0
you’ll find the download link at the bottom of the article
if you chose to add it to your FF, browser.
BTW: No offense taken I understand were you’re coming from you can never
be to safe on the internet now days thats the main reason for downloading
the Tiny URL extension so I can see the actual link when I’m reading twitter
