Filed under: Utility Email Support Feature Tags: HTML Instruction
The great thing about having a website is you can build in links to anything. websites design enables artists and art groups to place links anywhere there is a text box. This is done using HTML code.

This blog focuses on helping you make your links active.

While this is literally showing the link, say like www.MyArtClub.Com, it does not make it easy for the reader to activate the page by clicking on the words, like this version does: www.MyArtClub.Com .

Link to other sites , use the following html format:

<a href="">Click Here For My Other Site </a>

where you substitute your particular web address for ""

and where you substitute what you want to be clicked on for Click Here for My Other Site

Works for emails too!

Note You MUST use the exact symbols and (from experience!) test every time you add a new link to make sure it works!
