I'm assuming your talking about a link.. here's how you do it but change the @ to a

<@ href="http://www.caedes.net/Zephir.cgi?lib=Caedes::Gallery&author=verenabloo&page=1">V's gallery</@>

now to go there just click on the blue writing...

it's not hard to do.. actually just copy and paste this link into a word pad or something and change it in that.. that way you have it there and all you have to do is change the http address and the name you want to call it and then paste it onto the thread or whatever...

It means you did something wrong Verena. Carefully check how you do it and follow Jacqueline's directions exactly. I can still goof up if I don't pay close attention. Good luck!

I keep the twiddly bits in a TEXT file .. I don't even try to remember it

Here's my 2 cents Verena....

Believe it or not... I am link challenged. Ask anybody, Keith, Jackie, Les, Larry, Cat .... they'll tell you. *sigh*

So, I tend to do the same thing Keith does, use a TEXT file. Only MY text file just so happens to be my personal page here at Caedes.... go over & scroll up to June something for a laugh.

Here, this link works, it's a link to a great tune on Youtube by Kenny Wayne Shepard.

King's Highway

Here's the EXACT SAME LINK .....

<*** href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqEXSYHJ98I&mode=related&search=">King's Highway</***>

Where you see the 3 astericks ( *** ) replace those with a lower case a .. ( a ) It should work.

THEN put this link somewhere safe, a bank vault maybe, where you can access it in the future & just change around the URL as needed ( the little addressy dealie that starts with www ) & what you want the blue part to say.

You might want the blue part, ( your actual linkie ) to say something classy like " This is my link you losers you , beware for I am a linking god !!! " .... or some such drival... but I'm sure you get the idea.

Happy Linking !

<@ href="COPY AND PASTE LINK HERE">DESCRIPTION</@>

Take that and replace the "@"s with "a"s. Replace the underlined text with what it says goes there. Make sure when you copy and paste your link url to leave the quote marks there, don't erase them.

P.S. If you want to practice a bit, just send yourself pm's. That way you'll find out if it worked and there'll be no evidence for anyone else to see how many attempts it took. 8P

It is confusing for people because it's html which is a very basic programming language.
However it is the easiest one to learn. The descriptions here are all valid, it's just finding the one you can click with.

Sometimes it helps to understand what each individual bit means and sometimes that only confuses matters.
But if you are feeling brave you can google for basic html ;)

Ooh good good ... I like a challenge, now then ... shall we give it go?

Verena ... look at the formula for linking, as stated here:

<@ href="http://www.caedes.net">CAEDES</@>

Spacing ... is important. Don't change any of the spacing.

The reason everyone is putting @ and *'s in the formula is that if they didn't ... you would only see the blue text, or the link. The site would interpret the 'code' and show only the link.

Using the formula above as I have written it ... annnd ... making the change, the only change ... of replacing the @'s with the letter a in both spots ... would result in a link showing up ... in blue ... to the Caedes site.

If I make those changes ... you would see this:

CAEDES

______________________________________________________

The .. http://www.caedes.net part ... is the web address to any web page as found and stated in your internet browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox, whichever you use.

The .. CAEDES part ... is the part that will ultimately show as the blue text or actual link. You can name this part of the formula anything you want. One word, or a paragraph ... or a sentence, whatever.

______________________________________________________



As long as everything or parts of the linking formula are in their rightful places and spots ... remember no extra spaces and so forth ... you should be able to do links.

Give it a try with just the example I have provided linking to the Caedes page. Maybe it will sink in a bit more once you see the results.

Good luck. :o)

Verena, that link I gave you with the 3 asterisks ?

1.COPY & PASTE THE ENTIRE THING,

2. TAKE OUT THE 3 ***

3. REPLACE THE 3 *** WITH A LOWER CASE A ( a )

4. REMOVE THE ENTIRE URL IN THE EXAMPLE I GAVE YOU FROM THE HTTP TO THE =

5. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS LEAVE IN THE ( " ) MARK AT THE BEGINNING & THE END OF YOUR URL ADDRESS OR IT WILL NOT WORK

6. REPLACE THE URL ADDRESS WITH SAY THE ADRESS FROM YOUR GALLERY

7. REPLACE THE WORDS "KING'S HIGHWAY WITH THE WORDS MY GALLERY

8. AND YOU HAVE A LINK TO YOUR GALLERY.

9. IF IT DOESN"T WORK THE FIRST TIME, PRACTICE.

The fact that these links don't allow spaces caught me off-guard when I first tried to make links.
The link has four parts.

<@ href=
This is the first part

"http://somewebsite.com/">
This is the address

Some Website
This is the description

</@>
This ends the link.

Altogether it looks kind of like this:
<@ href="http://somewebsite.com>Some Website</@>

Just replace the @ with a.

I've found it easier to link to other pages since downloading and installing the ScribeFire plugin for my Firefox browser. It's supposed to be for posting to blogs, but this is what I use it for: feed it a word (such as Verenabloo), and tell it I want it to link to her page (telling it the URL), and it formats it for me... see: Verenabloo. Then I copy the HTML from the Source Editor (click on the <A> tab)... I know I've not explained it very well and it sounds complicated; it's best to try it out. It speeds the process up for me, and I'm much more likely to link to pages.

In case anybody still thinks HTML is a programming language...

Hyper-text Markup Language.

It is a markup language...


With the syntax (or grammar in language terms)

Element:
< a href = "URL" ></ a >

Attribute:
< a href = "URL">< /a >

In the case of a link, the URL is the attribute, the less than and greater than signs, as well as the tag "a", make up the element.

Does this clear anything up for anyone?

Reiterating Tootle's tip from above once again:

"I've found it easier to link to other pages since downloading and installing the ScribeFire plugin for my Firefox browser.

It's supposed to be for posting to blogs, but this is what I use it for: feed it a word (such as Verenabloo), and tell it I want it to link to her profile page (telling it the URL or the web address for that web page), and it formats it for me ... see:

Verenabloo.

Then I copy that 'code' from the Source Editor (click on the <A> tab) ..."


... and there you go ... done for you. :o)

Just paste that 'code' wherever you wish ... and you have placed a link or the blue highlighted words as you say.

Or ... dye your hair brown. :oP
