The best way to post a link is to paste it directly from your browser - that way you'll be sure the url is correct, it's surprising how easy it is to make a tiny error when typing a link. Our site will convert it to a 'click here' anyway, and then you'll get posts telling you the link's dead.
Here are tips for putting in links...this works for pages, posts and hotmail.
The MSN Tool bar for pages and posts & hotmail has a great tool for links...It's the button that looks like a globe with glasses>>>
When you click on that, a small window pops up with a blank box to paste (Cntrl V) any URL into. Just copy (Cntl C) any addy from another site and paste it in (Cntrl V). If you are creating a link to a page within the comm there is a pull down menu above that blank box that shows you every page in your comm. Just pull down the list and select the page you wish to link to. This is great for creating pages that navigate within the comm. Remeber it's always easiert to this if you have two window open. One that you are working in and one to go get pics and links and such with .
Working this way just puts a simple link on...one where the URL is typed out underlined and highlighted to show it is an active link.
A tidy and more fun way to link is to hide or embed a link in a picture or words. You can type "Click here " or "Mail me here" , then before you go to the link tool, highlight those words and when you put the url into the link window and click create link the link will be embedded into the text you highlighted. Like this.... *Note: When you past in an addy, use the pull down feature in the link tool to select "mail to" instead of "http//" for your link.
You can imbed a link in any picture as well. Just add the picture to your post, page or mail, click on it once and it will be "selected"... You will then see it surounded by small boxes on the corners of the image and the sides. Then go to you link tool and paste in the URL and click create link. Your picture is now a link.
