blog tip: Hyperlink in Comment


Sometimes you want to include a clickable URL to some fancy website in your comment. How do you do this?


Option 1: learn the code
Most comments allow the use of simple HTML statements. Therefore just type

<a href="URL">DESCRIPTION</a>

URL: the exact URL of the site you are linking to
DESCRIPTION: the name of the link, you can put here anything you want


Option 2: use your test blog
If you are too lazy to remember the code (like me) you can simply use your test blog. Go to this blog and make a new post. Include the link (using the Link button). Click on HTML and copy the code. Go back to the comment and paste the code. Voila.

  1. Never thought of the test-blog method of html automation! Good tip, that. Mind you, I'm always super-aware that if I see html links in comments, I suspect a spammer's trying to use me for the wrong purposes.

  2. But if You don't want the visitor doesn't abandone at all Your site, the code
    instead of
    a href="URL"
    write
    a href="URL" target="_blank"

    That target="_blank" allows to maintain Your page open.

I love to read your remarks and suggestions!

Please don't comment using the name 'Anonymous', because unfortunately these will end up in the spam department, due to the large bots leaving anonymous comments with questionable links...

Also don't use links that refer to commercial sites, this is spam (and me no likey spam)!
