Quick Question About The Body Of An Article

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Diane and I joined 2 weeks ago. I would appreciate it if someone could help me.  I've searched the forums but haven't found the answer.

    I recently wrote a hub called How To Budget With Gift Cards.  I referenced another of my hubs within the body of the article.  I couldn't figure out how to make the actual title into a link so I added a link capsule at the bottom.  Is there a way to do this?  Are we allowed to have links within the body of an article?

      Highlight the text then click the chainlink button in the toolbar, the one that reads hub_link.desc

      You can select your hub in the second field and click insert.

      It's a good thing so I encourage you to do it. smile

        ah haunty you beat me to it smile

        Incidentally does the "hub_link.desc" mean the hubpages team have forgotten to give the button a meanigful description?

    You can have links in your Hub, just make sure that you aren't being over promotional and are at least offering helpful and original content.
