    Can anyone help me with my website....I want to put links in so that people can click on them, but the site builder doesn't give any guidance with this. How do I turn the text into a hyper link so that people can click on it.
    Thanks

    I don't know if this will help, but I created a web page with FrontPage. The page only contained the word "text". I made a hyperlink for that to baptistboard.com. Here is the resultant HTML code

    </font><blockquote>code:</font><hr /><pre style="font-size:x-small; font-family: monospace;">&lt;html&gt;

    &lt;head&gt;
    &lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;Content-Language&quot; content=&quot;en-us&quot;&gt;
    &lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;Content-Type&quot; content=&quot;text/html; charset=windows-1252&quot;&gt;
    &lt;meta name=&quot;GENERATOR&quot; content=&quot;Microsoft FrontPage 4.0&quot;&gt;
    &lt;meta name=&quot;ProgId&quot; content=&quot;FrontPage.Editor.Document&quot;&gt;
    &lt;title&gt;New Page 1&lt;/title&gt;
    &lt;/head&gt;

    &lt;body&gt;

    &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.baptistboard.com&quot;&gt;text&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

    &lt;/body&gt;

    &lt;/html&gt;</pre>[/QUOTE]

    As a test, I opened notepad and pasted just the following code.

    </font><blockquote>code:</font><hr /><pre style="font-size:x-small; font-family: monospace;">&lt;html&gt;

    &lt;head&gt;

    &lt;title&gt;New Page 1&lt;/title&gt;
    &lt;/head&gt;

    &lt;body&gt;

    &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.baptistboard.com&quot;&gt;text&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

    &lt;/body&gt;

    &lt;/html&gt;</pre>[/QUOTE]I saved the file as an html file and it worked just fine. This creates a page with the word "text" and when I click on the word it takes me to http://www.baptistboard.com.

    Thank you david. That worked fine. I figured if you changed the word *text* to whatever word the site is called, it would work...and it did...thanks. Just out of interest, how did you create that code?

    Hi Rich,

    I used Microsoft FrontPage. FrontPage lets me create a web page the easy way then allows me to see and edit the code on an adjacent tab.

    FrontPage can be sold as a separate program and also comes with my Office 2000 Premium version. I have it because I have Office 2000 Premium.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    hello, rich_UK:

    You can also play around with the attributes of the HTML for link:

    If you want to open a new browser for the link:

    &lt;a href="http://www.baptistboard.com" target="new window"&gt;text here&lt;/a&gt;;

    If you want a tooltip when the visitor's pointer hovers over the link for a while:

    &lt;a href="http://www.baptistbord.com" target="new window" title="baptistboard.com"&gt; text here &lt;/a&gt;

    cheers.

    Look at the site www.htmlgoodies.com. It has some very good tutorials about the basics.

    You can write HTML in any word processor or in the notepad. Just save the file as a .html and then open it in your browser. Then you can have both the wordpad and the browser open at the same time. Change some code, hit cntrl-S to save, then in your browser hit F5 to see what it looks like ...
