How to make a simple HTML link
There is just a little bit of code to make a clickable link. It's only about fifteen keystrokes, and it's a good trick to know.
<a href=""> </a>Within the quotation marks, put the full URL starting with http:// 2020 note: Probably https these days, but whatever the full link is.
and then between the bracket and the closing command, put either the same url (if you want it to look that way) or words, or a photo
It can go right in the middle of text like this: <a href="URL GOES HERE">the URL again, or other words, or an image </a> and more text in your post...
EXAMPLES, first with the code and then with what it looks like when it works:
With a URL: <a href="http://thinkingsticks.blogspot.com">http://thinkingsticks.blogspot.com</a> blah blah continued
