In some of my blog posts I use non-WP smilies and I'd like to credit the maker without having to write something like "Smilies are either WordPress defaults or from _____" in every post. Also, in the future, I might make myself a new header using pictures or graphics that require credit and a link on every page they used. I think the solution to my credit/link issues is the text widget. (That, or find a way to change the name of the Blogroll to Credits.)
My problem is that I can't put the link in the text. I can't, for example, make it so you can click on the words Teal Deer's Dollhouse and go to that site. The best I can do is "Teal Deer's Dollhouse at http://www.2longdidntreed.com/index". Even then you have to copy and paste the URL because it shows up as text, not a link.
Is there a solution to this? Keep in mind, I stink at code, so if it involves code, please keep it simple. Thanks!
The blog I need help with is arizonad.wordpress.com.
