hey cool! I gues it did! Now, how do I do the same for bold and italics? (I have no patience to go back through 21 pages of this thread to see if someone else explained already.)October 2, 2009 2:52 am at 2:52 am #1053946

If some kind soul would like to teach me how to link to a specific post it would be appreciated.October 2, 2009 5:42 am at 5:42 am #1053950
kapusta: if you click on the small blue number sign below the post, the link to that post will come up on your navigation bar. Highlight the whole thing and copy and paste, then follow the directions that ICOT laid out in the link I provided above and also this link and you will have your link!
Give it a try – I’m up late cooking and checking the CR periodically so I’m here if you get confused 🙂October 2, 2009 6:32 am at 6:32 am #1053951YW Moderator-42Moderator
You don’t have to actually click the link and copy from the navigation bar. You can right-click the link and choose to “copy link location” in Firefox, I forgot what the choice is in IE but it’s something similar, perhaps “copy target” or something.October 2, 2009 6:53 am at 6:53 am #1053952
Thank you 42 for the info and for being around at this time of night to approve posts 🙂October 2, 2009 7:36 am at 7:36 am #1053953
NY Mom, thanx for all the help!
Basically, all I’m doing is numbering a post and doing the same thing I would to make it blue letters? (in the super dumbed down version)October 2, 2009 7:48 am at 7:48 am #1053954
Yes! You got it! And you’re just putting a bunch of stuff in the first brackets (or whatever those thingies are called).
Try it! Which post do you want to link to? (Can’t wait to see…)October 2, 2009 9:05 am at 9:05 am #1053955October 2, 2009 1:13 pm at 1:13 pm #1053956
Kapusta, let me be clear about the aforementioned “stuff”. What I should have said is: Yes, you use the brackets (less than and greater than signs) on either side of the word/s you would like to use as the link, but you have to add the URL into the first brackets too.
For instance, if you want the words “Click This” to be the link, you would put “” Click This (your link words) and end it all with .
I hope that is clear for you. If it wasn’t then I think it would be better for you to go back to the above links, ICOT really did a good job showing how to do it.
I know you can do it!October 2, 2009 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm #1053957
Those instructions didn’t quite come out right! Better look at what ICOT wrote. Sorry!October 2, 2009 3:01 pm at 3:01 pm #1053958
NY Mom, thanks for the link
I don’t know if I got that right, but I am trying
Now, I have the same question as kapusta- I’m still not understanding how to put a word in place of a URL link.October 2, 2009 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #1053959
FB and kapusta: I am really pretty new to this myself so I will try to explain it without messing up this time. Hope I can do it properly.
If you look closely at ICOT’s example, you will see that creating a link is similar to turning something blue or making it bold (brackets before and after the word/s), BUT the only difference is that instead of just having one letter/word in the brackets before and after your Link Word/s like so :
You also have to add the URL into the first brackets after this
<a href= your URL here
So the symbol placed in the brackets on either end of your Link Word/s is “a”, and in the first set of brackets you add “href=”, followed by your URL, followed by your closing bracket.
In the second set of brackets is “/a” and you are done! (Don’t forget the “/”)
Hope I did that right and made it clear!October 2, 2009 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #1053960October 2, 2009 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm #1053961

Mod80 – so how often do you feel an urge to do that?
okay, so now what is there to do besides for bold, italics, blue, and the lists and stuff? (Besides for pasting other peoples art in.)October 6, 2009 2:33 am at 2:33 am #1053969October 6, 2009 3:58 am at 3:58 am #1053970

I am not interested in going through 845 posts to figure out how to do all this stuff. Can someone post clear instructions on how to bold, italicize, blue, hyperlinks and pictures. Thanks!May 3, 2010 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #1053979
<X>your text here</X>
replace X with “a” for blue. (without the quote marks)
replace X with “em” for italics
replace X with “strong” for bold
replace X with “blockquote” for blockquote.
hyperlinks is complicated, let someone else do it
pictures?May 3, 2010 10:52 pm at 10:52 pm #1053980
the above is exactly how you would do it to make “blue text” appear in blue.May 6, 2010 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #1053981YW Moderator-42Moderator
With the new system it seems that links are no longer blue so this trick doesn’t work, the links are now the same color as the rest of the text but become underlined when you mouseover them. (I don’t like this btw, I would rather be able to see that something is a link without putting my mouse on it)May 6, 2010 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #1053982d aMember
I got the
a = blue (which dosen’t seem to work with the new site [like everything else!])
em = italics
strong = bold
SO what does
What what does “You can also put code in between backtick ( ` ) characters.” mean??October 11, 2010 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #1053983Pashuteh YidMember
