You'll want to enter the text as follows, minus all the spaces between the brackets.

[ url= website URL] name_your_link [ /url]

Thank you so much for providing this, i know it must have taken a lot of time. I learn best when i can actually see something that is being explained.

OK, YEAH! You did it. Ok, I'm going to go and delete all these now, so it doesn't look like I'm having a conversation with myself.

Hey Julie- Thanks for all your input on all these different threads. You're so helpful - do you ever leave your computer? LOL! I, for one, really appreciate 'cha!

do you ever leave your computer?


I've been procrastinating. I had a mountain of paperwork and mail to sort through that I really didn't want to do. So, as long as I could contribute here, I could put it off. Dh is out of town and my girls were in bed just before 8:00, so it was like freebie time for me.

Good news and bad news... I did take a couple of hours and tackle the paper mountain. But, here it is, almost 2:20am and I'm just finishing. I couldn't go to bed without checking in just one more time, though. I'm crazy, I know.

Take the spaces out between the [ ]'s with "url" and "/url"and it will work.

Denise, when you get your blog re-made, copy the url and paste it here. I'll help you with exactly what to type to make it a link. Sorry you're so frustrated, and that you felt you needed to delete your blog b/c of it. Don't give up.

I am grateful for the screen shots. I still cannot get it to work, but I am so glad that you posted this. It is much harder than I thought! It looks like it is working below (on include signature, the link looks live) but when I post, it does not seem to link??? I am sure I am just doing this wrong. I am internet challenged!

The trick that got this tutorial to work for me, was when you type the first url in, I had to change it to URL (capitals) before the link would work. After that no problem!
