Adding link to post. July 21, 2007 8:02 PM   Subscribe

So I am a new member. I am having a hard time getting the link option to work. I click on the blue "Link" link, enter the link, then preview it and I get the full html in the preview. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks!!

Highlight the text that you want to become a hyperlink, then click the link button and enter the URL there. Alternatively you could enter the HTML manually.

Ha ha ha, dumb me. That worked. I knew it had to be something easy. Thank you.

As an aside, since I started posting on Metafilter last year I've been adding many more hyperlinks to emails I send at work. Often, those emails Mefi comments (without all the rhetoric and snark, or transcendent wisdom).

often those emails *resemble* Mefi comments. I usually preview the emails more thoroughly.

Now someone come up with a witty and verbose song about MeFi links.

Tim Berners-Lee died for your sins. Glad you got it figured out, Climber.
