    You can create links in different ways. For example in this forum you can create a link by clicking on the figure of a globe with a paperclip across it when you are writing a link. Same with WordPress if you are writing a post or page just click on the little icon in the visual editor or click on the word "link" in the html editor. If you are using html code for your site then just check the tutorial here at HTML Links

      Hey Leanne King!

      I thank you for your response.and (w3schools.com) is something ive started studying & will continue to do so for awhile! I also understand that there may be certain icons on certain pages that will allow a link to automatically generate.
      What im talking about is,say i im at yahoo ask.com,and want to direct some one somewhere,and there's no icons or way to automatically generate a link,i would like to be able to manually create a link anywhere on that page.
      Now i have the html code thang down.my problem is what do i do in order to make it appear on the page.do i type the (html link code) in the browser? and some how activate it that way? or is there some other way i can open up a part of a page ,type in a link and save the changes?

        I think I may be misunderstanding the exact question here... do you want to direct someone to a yahoo ask.com page from your own website page? Since I am under that impression, I want to try to help you here...

        By using the great information on building the code for the link found on w3 Schools and by also reading the helpful posts that are right here in this thread, I'm sure you've got the syntax down by now, but I will share my knowledge of the syntax with you just in case.

        The issue is knowing how to place that link on a web page, right? I'm sure you've seen examples of links that look similar to this:

        HTML Code:
        <a href="HTTPlink"> Link Text</a>


        HTML uses a system of tags. For each element on the page you will find and opening tag and a closing tag.
        The open tag is encased in "< >" and the closing is similar with an added "/" so it looks like "</ >"

        As you can see in the html above, there is an open "<a>" tag and a closing "</a>" tag at the beginning and end respectively. Inside the open tag there's an attribute; the href= is an attribute of the a tag and the value of the attribute is "HTTPlink". Within the quotation marks is where you would put the actual address of a site page you wish to refer someone to.

        Between the opening tag and closing tag there are words; this is the Anchor Text. When this is placed on a web page all you will see is the anchor text; clicking on it will take the reader to the referred page of information. The anchor text can be anything you wish, but should be descriptive of where the link is going to take the reader.

        You can practice your linking skills by creating a Notepad text file and saving it as html. the "Save as type" should be "all files" and name it something like "link.html" when you save it. It becomes an HTML file that will open in a browser window at that point. Remember, though, since this file now automatically opens in a browser, in order to edit it again you will need to right click it and "Open With" Notepad.

        After doing that, try to use the code for the link you want to make.

        Save it and open it in a browser. Then you will be able to see how a link works on a web page when you use the code. Now, if you have a pre-built website and either FTP access to it, or access through your control panel to the files, you can grab the "index.html" file and edit it.

        Some control panels will allow you to simply the edit the file in a text editor in your browser, while others will require that you download the file, make your changes, save it and then upload it to the server. Play with your link by placing it in different areas of the page. See how it behaves. This is the best way to learn.

        ***************** WARNING! *****************

        Be careful! While doing this, you want to make sure you don't ruin your original files. save backups of any files you're going to be editing before you start playing with them.

        ******************************************

        Go through the tutorials in the W3 school html lessons and try out everything they teach you. Practice first in the test HTML file you created in notepad first and then graduate to playing with your website files only when you're comfortable with the coding. HTML code is quite fun. When you get proicient, perhaps you can try a little DHTML, too. Good luck.

        Hope I've been able to provide at least some insight on this topic.

    I think you are a beginner to HTML. You need to know HTML before you begin to get to the links. There are lots of other topics in HTML which come before links. To get to the topic of link you need to clearly understand the basics of HTML. Anyway if you are interested in learning HTML, go visit W3CSchools and get introduced to HTML there. The site will provide you the most basic and advance tutorials you need to understand.

        When I click on a file on the page nothing happens. Literally, nothing. I tried to place the cursor on the page where I want the link must be and I tried to highlight the text I want to be a link and it does not work. I also tried right clicking on the link on the page, but in vain. It worked well for me during the first week or so to use PBwiki but now it no longer works either in the wiki, I am a member.

    Yes, html is just a markup language that your browser uses to generate the design and layout of your site.

    The link within that 'html' is simply something along the lines of......

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.domain-name.com">Anchor text here</a>
    The words 'Anchor text here' will be the only part that will be shown in your browser and is the actual 'link' that people click on.

    Of course you can add other elements to that syntax in no particular order, such as nofollow tag, title tag etc........

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.domain-name.com" title="Description of the site or page the link points to" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Anchor text here</a>
    target="_blank" (Opens page in a new browser window)
    rel="nofollow" (Makes the link nofollow)
    title="text here" (Create a title that displays when hovered over)

    You need to have access to an FTP server
    where you will upload the file basically . that's the way to put your file on the web.

    So essentially when you edit the html document
    you can put (in the right place of course) something like this :

    PHP Code:
    <a href="your link here">My new Link!</a
    and once you put that text somewhere in the HTML file
    you will notice the new link coming to life on the page.

    That's the simple way to do this , when your working on a page not related to
    wordpress or any of these other content editing softwares.

    Hey everyone,

    How exactly do you create an anchor link in here, in the WF?
    I am a War Room Member so I am allowed to do it, but I cannot figure it out.

    When I put the anchor code, and then I try to put the html tags around it, that doesn't work.

    If I should put the anchor code in the signature line, that looks like anchor code.

    Thanks,
    Rae
