Hi, thanks for the ping.

Looks like the link is fixed but for the benefit of anyone not clear on the concept, here is a tiny file to keep handy as FREEPURL.txt on your desktop:

The way to link a URL is to do this:

<$$a h$$ref=$$”enter the url here”$$>enter descriptive text or title here<$$/$$a$$>

The way to post a photo is similar:

<$$img src=$$http$$://www.$$ENTER PHOTO LOCATION HERE>

but carefully DELETE the $$ which are inserted here so that the commands don’t act like normal, for the sake of showing you how to do it.


Also, pinging JohnRob—what do you think about including something similar in the actual Posting Comment form ready to copy-and-paste? And/or a link from there to the HTML Sandbox?

Not having a lot of money to throw around (LOL), it looks better like this:

<a href="enter url here">enter descriptive text or title here</a>

That being said, the URL for the graphic posted in the body of the article is apparently one that doesn't hotlink well.

I still haven't been able to get anyone to tell me if they right click on it and click on "show picture" if it shows up or not.

Shows up fine fo me!

HTML hint:

squish these together: & l t ; (& g t ;) and they will make these: <and>

lt= less than, gt= greater than
