Where Are The Links?

Where Are The Links?

A few complaints that the links are not showing up in the blogs. But they are there. You can find them if you run your mouse over the right words. Way too much trouble to go hunting in each line. The links used to be underlined. 

Would you like your links to be underlined, once again, so you can easily find them?

Here is a simple, really simple, way to make them appear. After you place a link in your blog, before posting, it  appears underlined. Once posted the underline disappears.

Easy fix..go to the underline symbol above and UNDERLINE the link. When posted it will look like it always did.

Here is an example.

#1 Link to post without the underline.

#2 Link to post WITH the underline.

 

They both work exactly the same. The second one is much easier to find when reading. Thanks Sharon Tara for encouraging me to share this simple tip.

Links and Tags and Underline 

Instead of dealing with links and tags and underlines, I could be listing and selling houses.

 

Wait a minute, I am out showing three houses today and doing this little simple blog post while waiting.

So now you know....

Where Are The Links?

Yup, but AR should make that change, not us. AR should make this as easy for us as users as possible.

It's so obvious, and yet I never thought of it until you mentioned it.  So glad you did!  Glad you wrote the post too...and so fast....you don't waste any time girl!

I actually like that the links aren't underlined. It provides some consistency to my website which does the same thing.

Margaret,  thanks for this useful tip.  Yes, I had noticed that many of the updates were not really upgrades.  You always have a solution that makes our lives easier.

Margaret, the link thing is probably about the only thing about the new format that I figured out with no problems!  Go figure.

Like graphics that sometimes disappear and are apparent in drafts...not in the final post....(they are just emptyma boxes) I have had links disappear...not lately...may have been part of the changes to AR that are now corrected.

Margaret, I'd noticed the underlining had disappeared lately, and also that sometimes my links may show up in two different colors.  Kind of odd that is does that.  Thanks for the underlining tip!

I had not noticed that the links are not underlined - thanks for the tip.  I don't want readers getting frustrated looking for them and then leave.

It is a good advice, but I wish they just were .....underlined:)

p.s. AR made blogging more complicated: links, pictures.

Great tip, Margaret.  I've been out of the loop for a while but this was good to know so I don't go crazy looking for that line.
