How do I include a link in my post?

1. Browse to the page you want to create a link to and copy its URL onto your clipboard.

2. Then open the “publish” form and start typing your post. When you get to the point where you want to insert the link, click the “link” button in the formatting table on the publish page just below the “title” field. This will open three windows in the succession.

3.  In the first window, paste the URL link that is saved on your clipboard.

4. In the second window, type the words that you want to become a hot link.

5. In the third window, type the title for the link. This will show when you hover your cursor over the link. You can leave it blank if you want, but it’s kind of cool and very easy. It’s useful when you want to give the reader more information about where the link goes.

Note: This works easily if you create your links as you go. If you create all your text then go back and try to add links, it gets a bit more confusing because Expression Engine will insert the link at the end of the text instead of where you put the cursor. So you need to cut it and paste it to the right place.
