How to make an link hot
« on: December 27, 2016, 10:16 PM »
How is it possible to make a link so it goes to the example intended? For example,

"Astro 2PG7S 2 Quart Pressure Pot with Gun and Hose Paint and Body Spray Guns"

If I wanted to show this to someone how could I get it to go directly to it's source?

Thank Mark

When in edit mode for the post, select the text and then click on the globe icon (second row, second icon below the Italicize icon) in the edit tools bar above the text entry area.  That will pop up a link-to box and enter the URL there.

Post the entry and you should see blue colored text with a link behind it in your post.

Does that answer your question?

If I'm understanding the question correctly, @neilc's answer is right. I've allow attached a screenshot of what the code should look like. I've put a red circle around the button that you'll need to click to add a link.

You can just paste in the url, and you get this:


If you want the link to say something other than the full url, use the 'insert hyperlink' button, like this:

  Thanks geoffshep, I remember now. I wanted to know if you can replace this gun with a HVLP and have it work like an HVLP should.  I'll have to ask in the painting thread.
Thank you
