[coding] How To Insert Links Into Comments

Just recently David Lebovitz called for self submissions to his blog roll. When I went to put my blog URL in comments, I noticed that pretty much everyone did so as a link to their sites. Not poor old neanderthal me, I just typed my address in to be cut and pasted. Can someone tell me how to do nifty links in comments?

Cut and paste that into a comment box and you'll be good to go.

cheers,
Matt

Thanks matt, I just did a test comment and your cut and paste worked fine. I actually tried to do just what you showed me a while ago, borrowing from my template, but it didn't work, maybe it was crappy typing on my part. Anyway, much praise from At My Table

on a historical note check out the second ever post on food blog s'cool. It might even be the first post, if you don't count the launch announcement. It's from a time before I knew how to embed html without causing the html to act upon itself, if you get my gist. I know how to do that ever since thanks to a comment that was left on this early post.

Hey sam, I was wondering how matt gave the code without converting to a link, escaped characters huh. Sorry to ask a question you had already answered, I did check the archive, but didn't think to look at comments.

Sam said...

neil - i have absolutely no problem with people re-asking questions again on food blog scool. especially since keeping the archives are a whole year behind the times, so dont worry about that. obviously I appreciate it when people check the whole front page and make sure that the question hasnt been asked in the visible posts, but beyond that, repeat away. things always change and new things can always be learnt and we always have new pupils.

Plus the google search doesnt seem to work - i really must worj that one out one day.

Also, if you have a wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) editor, such as "Compose" mode in Blogger, you can copy and paste a link already written without having to retype the html code.

Sam - hard to believe it's been nearly two years since that first post! Wow - time really flies...

Sam, not to create more work for you, but couldn't you create one of those custom google search engines and just enter Food Blog S'cool as the only blog and put a link to that in the sidebar for people to search for past information? If it worked well, it might save you work on the archives in the long run.

Also, LOL, I know how to make a link in a comment but for some reason I thought it wouldn't work in Typepad so I didn't leave a live link in David's comments either. Oh well, live and learn.

I do remember that second-ever post, but I had not seen the bit about escaped characters, so thanks so much for that (I made my recent post here just before I saw this).

Sam,
Could one put a Technorati "search this blog" widget on Food Blog S'Cool? Sometimes they work when the "Search Blogger" thing does not.

Christian Louboutin
are not the ideal for foot and leg health. The healthiest Christian Louboutin Pumps
are those with fairly wide heels that are no more than a half or the Christian Louboutin Boots
are too tight. You should have warm-up and cool-down exercises every time you wear Christian Louboutin Sandals
