For those who don’t know how to embed url links under text, it’s really quite simple. The easiest way is to type what ever it is you’re going to say in the comment box before going to your target url, hopefully in another open window. Highlight the url you want to link to using the mouse cursor and right click “Copy” or “Ctrl-C” in Windows (Command-C in Mac) – now the url is stored in the buffer.
Go back to the comment box, and just before the text you want to hyperlink and type <a href=”
(The open bracket “<” tells the browser to look for code, the “a” stands for “anchor” and the “href” is the html you are referring to.)
After that first quotation mark, right click “Paste” or Ctrl-V (Cmd-V in Mac) and the url should fall in right behind, thus:
close that off with a trailing quotation mark and an end bracket, thus: <a href=”http://reallylongunbreakabletext.com”> then go to the end of the word or phrase that you want to make a hyperlink and close the anchor code bracket like so: </a>
You should be able to see what you’ve done in the comment preview pane below your comment.
Other common code for comments boxes are the italic codes <em> and </em> and the bold code, <strong> and </strong>, each time wrapped around whatever text you want to call out. <blockquote> and </blockquote> are also often used when excerpting long strings of someone else’s text.
Too easy, yah?
