Ever want to post a link to a web page but don’t want it to look like a bunch of code?
Maybe you don’t understand the code in the first place. (I won’t tell.)
Let’s say you want to post the following link:
Not attractive. And, depending on where you paste it, sometimes it won’t even function as a link.
What if you could create a link that looks like this:
And, more importantly, when someone clicked, it actually worked as a link?
Let’s keep it extremely simple. Type or copy the text below:
<a href=”page.html”>Label Text</a>
Then replace page.html with the URL of the destination web page.
Also replace Label Text with whatever text you want the reader to see instead of the actual link.
In this example, the link would look like this:
<a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFLs9RI8mSA” > Small is Tall</a>
(Keep in mind, some websites, forums and blogs restrict the use of html code. For instance, wordpress.com allows this html link code in comments, but blogger only allows simple html code, like bold and italics.)
