Becky


The only way that I've been able to do it reliably is to use the full editor window by using Add Reply button or click the Reply icon in the message header. When once there I click the Source button in the top right tool bar. Then type in the HTML code.

For an on-line HTML reference try the following link below check out the Create Hyperlinks link in the Examples area.
Click Here
Here's an example of what I think you're trying to do.

Becky, I just struggled through this. Maybe this will help.


Here is is my signature image.


And here is the code I used.  View source to see everything, and remove the asterisks (*) to make it work.

Becky - the source code for a hyperlink is...


< a$href="URL" >Text< /a >


with no spaces except the "$" between "a" and "href" - the URL must be enclosed within double-quotes.  "Text" is what you will see as underlined, clickable text.


If you go to the full Reply page (not Quick Reply), there is a "Source" button as the first item in the Toolbar.  This allows you to type in the html directly, and is what I've been using for certain things like links and sigs.


< a$href="http://www.SantaCruzLumberCo.com >Santa Cruz Lumber Co.< /a>


(again with no spaces except the "$") results in this...


Santa Cruz Lumber Co.

That W3Schools site is the best reference place for HTML and any other Internet standard you want to get into. Plus the tutorials are good and interactive to boot. You might want to make a fav bookmark for it on your system..

Type in the text that you want to be the link, then highlight it with your mouse, and then click on the link button in the toolbar, add in the url and voila, a link.

That is easy!  Much, much better than hard-coding it!


A minor point: Since the automatically created link isn't automatically underlined when the message is posted (at least it's not on my screen) a nearly color-blind guy like me has trouble spotting the active links.  Info only, not a request for change.

Like Becky ask on how ... I did like Shad sugguested for a test... "Type in name i wanted"     then highlight it with mouse and then click on Link ( chain icon) Copy  the link out of my web site on MLS.  then paste it in the link box.  


Now trying it.             Dwight's testing steam


Hot doggies ... It worked..  tks Shad.  and Dwights work to, but have to type in the link.



oh.... Found out by hitting Shift & Enter key at the same time, It will go to next line in stead of dropping down two spaces here . 


Instead of this. 

"Hope Shad get a spell ck (button) program to down load when he get a chance.. it's not working yet for us old guys." 
Keep up the questions Becky.. I'm learing new stuff.  Noel

Huh? It didn't work. Does anybody have any advice? I tried to follow Dwights instructions. Does he mean to replace the "$" with a space and remove all the other spaces? because that is what I tried.

Thanks.

Do like Shad said and use the Reply button and you don't need to know any code and you don't even need to type in the URL just add the URL by copying and pasting and use the "Insert Hyperlink" button...
