Creating hot links when posting a comment


When posting a comment on someon else's site and wanting to direct them to a specific link how do I make it "hot" ? I see other people's comments that do direct linking, but mine end up as one you'd have to copy and paste.

In looking at my signature to this post in HTML, do I just do the same and how do I do that on someone else's post when I can't control whether I'm in HTML or regular typing the way I can here? Does that last sentence make sense to anyone?

Not all blogs (for example) allow HTML in their comments. It's very frustrating to go to the trouble of composing a post with links and actual paragraph breaks, only to view it in the preview without any of that. Ack.

ruth, you can use the < a > tag and the < / a > tag.

so a link like this

would be done like this

< a h r e f = "http://www.yahoo.com>so a link like this< / a >

(take the spaces out. it's hard to do in this forum because blogger will accept as a link. the first part should be "a href")

Use the preview feature on most blogs to preview before posting to be sure it looks right.

Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty quick - and definitely worth it when you take the time.

Most blogs will (should) have a note saying whether or not html is allowed.

I say just do it and see what happens. A note to the owner might get them to make the change if they dont allow it. I cant see why not really...

Thanks so much everyone - for both the speedy response and the pearls of wisdom, naturally.

If you use Typepad, you can type your comment texts on the Typepad Compose Post tab, do whatever formatting and linking you want from there using the widgets on that page. Typepad converts all to html for you. All you need now is to cut and paste the html code from the Edit HTML tab.

There you have it. No need to remember any html tag etc.
