The great thing about having a website is you can build in links to anything. MyArtClub.com websites design enables artists and art groups to place links anywhere there is a text box. This is done using HTML code. Please refer to our earlier blog on the many uses of HTML codes, My text all runs together. Whats with that?
This blog focuses on helping you make your links active.
The way many artists provide a referring web address on their sites is to write out the website or email address. 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 .
To bring the words to life, here is what you do:
Link to other sites
, use the following html format:
Click Here For My Other Site
where you substitute your particular web address for "http://members.yahoo.com/myothersite"
and where you substitute what you want to be clicked on for Click Here for My Other Site
Works for emails too!
To create an active link that opens an email addressed to your email address, use the following html format:
where you substitute your email address twice in the above, for firstname.lastname@example.org
Note You MUST use the exact symbols and (from experience!) test every time you add a new link to make sure it works!
