Use links in your wordpress posts

If you’re wondering why to use links in yours posts, have a read of Zemanta’s post on it.  This is another in my three steps series -helping my friends with their blogs.

1. Go to the web page you want to link TO and copy the exact URL from the address bar in your browser.

2. Select the word you want to use as the clickable link and click on the link button -it looks like a chain with three links

select text and click the link icon

3. Paste the URL you copied in step 1 into the Link URL field (1), then set the link to open in a new window or the current window (2), and finally click on Insert (3).

paste the URL, click on insert

That’s it for now, please feel free to comment and let me know how you went or if there is anything else I should’ve included.  You will find more information about using links on Wikipedia
