Creating a link to a Blogpost entry

As you write your hyptertext reflections, you’ll want to create links right to specific entries as you discuss them.  To do that:

1.  Highlight the word in your text (in your reflection) you want to serve as the link to the entry. Say, you have written the following sentence, ” I am thrilled to be leaving nonfiction and going on to fiction; already I have explored the links on For Fiction Writers.”  You want to create a link of the words “For Fiction Writers” that will send your reader to that post.   You’d highlight those three words in your text.

2.  Open a new Firefox tab or window.  Find the appropriate blog, and click on the title of the post to which you want to link, i.e. “For Fiction Writers”  in the post below this one.  Once you’ve clicked on the title, up in the URL address line, you find the URL for that entry.

2.  Copy the URL, return to the other window, click on the icon of the chain link in the Editor line above the text box, and paste the URL in the window it opens there. (Make sure you have the relevamt words still highlighted in your text.)  Save.

Voila!

  1. Instead of highlighting my text, I was attempting to add the title in the link title box, but it works now. 🙂 Thank you!

  2. I am being old-fashioned and turning in a hard copy; i hope that’s still ok! all my work is posted on my blog, though.
