Linking between blogs is a great way to reference other material that relates to a blog. Links can be used both in the actual blog of the comments of a blog. You can link to anything published on the web, that could be on Active Rain or any other page with a URL.
How To Link
The mechanics of linking are simple.
- First navigate to the page you want to link too. Cut & paste the URL so it is on your clip board.
- Highlight the text on the page you want to use as the "linking text". To Highlight that means take your cursor, go over the words while you are holding the mouse right click button down. Release the "right click" button and you will see your words highlighted.
- Next click on the "chain link" in the bar at the top of the box. You will see a link and a broken link (side by side). Use the link. NOTE: if you have "pop up protection" on you computer, you will need to hold down the control key as you are clicking the link button. That will over-ride the pop-up.
- A new dialogue box will appear. It looks like this:
In this box you will put the URL in the box where it say Link URL
The box will close. When it does you should see the text on your page with a hyper link.
(the text you highlighted will be underlined)
If it is you did it right. If not, you need to start over.
