How To Make Text In Comments Link To A Page

So yesterday in my WOW post I started asking for links straight to pages because sometimes when you get loads of comments, going through Blogger profile can be quite the hassle. So, today I thought I'd post a quick tutorial on how to do that. It is honestly the simplest thing ever I think.

<a href="LINK GOES HERE">WHAT YOU WANT IT TO SAY GOES HERE</a>

That's it. It's probably the most easiest form to of html I've ever come across, but just in case you needed an example, here one is:

<a href="http://readingsmydrug.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/author-interview-with-nina-berry.html">Author Interview With Nina Berry</a>

Ends up looking like this:

Do note, this only works in comments. Some html tutorials people will have * or something similar in it to break the code to show you how it works,in blog posts, but that's not needed here. I have a link saved on a notepad doc on my desktop and just copy and paste the link in every time I need it.

Hope that helps you guys in the future!

Also, do you guys want some more basic html coding? I'm not fantastic like parajunkee or anything, but for the basic stuff? Let me know in the comments!

Hey, you there, yes you ;)

Thanks for commenting! This is seriously awesome and I promise to try my hardest to get back to you, so do check back if you had a question or something to discuss!

Sadly, this is an award free blog. I really, really appreciate the thought and offer but with grade twelve and other activities as well as blogging, I don't really have all the spare time in the world. But thank you so much for the thought!

Seriously, though. Check back because I love to reply to comments ;)
