How to Make a HyperLink in Blogger Comments

Techno Tips for the Techno-Challenged

Have you ever wondered how to make a clickable link to an article in the comments section of a blog? Or how to leave a hyperlink to your website in your signature after your comment?  It's not really that difficult.

Here's how to do it:

  <a href="web address you're linking to">text you're linking from</a>

Just copy and paste the line of code and substitute your URL (web address) and text for the green URL and text, and you'll have your very own hyperlink.


For example:

<a href="http://www.annemarienovrk.com">Anne Marie</a>




So there you have it. Good luck and Happy Blogging!!!


Cheers,


Anne Marie   :)

Use &lt; for the less-than sign, and &gt; for the greater-than sign when you want the result to display HTML tags (instead of interpreting them as tags). Ie, &lt;a&gt; will be displayed as <a>

Glad to help, Shana.

You're welcome :) Just one more thing: you're missing a ":" after http in your example.

Thanks for stopping by, Nancy. It is simple, once you know how. Hope this helps.

LOL, Jennifer.

I hope your computer doesn't implode, too.

If mine didn't, I'm pretty sure yours won't either.
