How do I properly source a website?

    I have referred to websites for some information. I would like to know how to use proper citation. I know how to do pictures, but some information requires research.

      The simplest option is to link to them.  Otherwise look up your favorite citation method (APA Chicago etc) and check how they format web citations.

        can I do a text box of the links? or should I casually say it in a paragraph?

          I just take the fact i am sourcing from that site and make it a link to that site.

              When editing a text module there is a button that looks like a piece of chain.  You select the text you want to be a link, hit the chain symbol, a field pops up and you put the url you want to link to into it.

      Haven't read where HubPages has a format but the MLA (Modern Language Association) format is:

      Last, First M. “Article Title.”Website Title. Website Publisher, Date Month Year Published. Web. Date Month Year Accessed.
