Testing link-making

Why am I not able to create links? The anchor appears in the text as I am writing it, but the active link disappears when I preview my text...I read the "URL path settings" info but am still clueless

testing again, to be sure that one can do so without logging in/registering...

Yes, anonymous postings allowed but moderated

You may post anonymously but you won't see your comments until the moderator approves them. We have had to adopt that policy to deal with a high volume of icky spam. Sorry for the delay.

Making links

If you are using the editor that looks like Word (icons above what you're typing for bold, italic, etc), otherwise known as "rich-text" enabled:

1) Type what you want your link to say, eg Serendip Home Page

2) Drag your cursor to select it

3) Click on the icon that looks like a link on a chain

4) Enter the URL in the space provided in the new window

5) Click the Insert button

e.g. Serendip Home Page
