    Ok I have noticed a few people have a light blue lettered link on their profiles that takes you either to their website or a few of their fav hubs. Could someone kindly tell me how to do this, thank you.

      That blue lettered that's what you call hyperlink. Maybe that's what you have to learn its on the technical side of computer. Just wait and some of our computer technician here will help you soon. Wink*. A little example is this you can download free photos from www.sxc.com ( see the blue link to that website)

    With a chain link smile You highlight the piece of text you want to become a link, press chain link, and copy URL into popup window... smile

      I tried this, exactly as you said, but it wont got to the URL I put in. I tried it with my website and also with one of my blogs. Are we not supposed to go to our own sites?

    Finally, I found the answer, and it was exactly what I thought it was, it just doesn't work for me.  I'll keep trying!

    Highlight the text, click on the chain, add url and the words I typed should turn blue, instead I get a link at the bottom of my hub...hmmmm

    Just tried it again. When I click on the link, it says "sorry, that page does not exist" What's that all about?
