Create a Link Within Your Comment

Posted by Jennifer on February 23, 2010 – 8:12 pm


Ever wondered how to create a link within the comment that you are leaving? I know I have. I know very little about HTML and honestly? I don’t have the time to research and learn it. That is why I was thrilled to come across this little tip at A Heart for Home.

<a href=URL>title</a>

Replace the URL with the URL of the site you are linking to and replace the title with the title of the site or the words you want to be displayed.

Need a visual example? Visit A Heart for Home!

Now these kinds of things fly out of my head in a moment. Don’t know why. I can remember what I paid for that dress on sale 7 years ago but I can’t remember useful things. LOL.  My best friends? Sticky notes in prominent places.

    Yes, I have wondered how people did that! Thanks so much for sharing. And now I just have to test it 🙂 I’d love it if you’d come visit me!

    Did it work?

  2. 2. Becky Said:

    It did! And now I’m taking your second piece of advice (which I use often) and putting the post-it note with directions right next to my computer. Have a lovely day!!

    I wondered how people did that! I am brand new to blogging, and HTML is so overwhelming. Okay, I am going to try your idea…

    Did it work?

    HTML can be so confusing and if you get one little thing wrong, it all messes up. Thanks for this tip though. I will practice it here: stop by and visit me at Long Wait For Isabella anytime 🙂

    This important information really needs to be better publicized! I’ve known it for a while now, but before that I spent a couple of years wondering how people did that!

    And I love the way publishing this tip gets people to try it here. Stop by my site to learn about The Yogurt of Christ. 😀

    And I wrote it down on a sticky & put it on the side of my screen 😉

    What an awesome tip! Thanks for sharing. I know what you mean about the pointless info lodged in the cranium. I would love to clear some space for my current appointments and such and purge the useless phone numbers of elementary school friends and lyrics from songs of the 80s… 😉
