    How do you link to an existing hub, or hyperlink text, when answering a Hubpages question?

    Often I see questions that I could easily answer with an existing hub, but I can't seem to be able to put the link in my answer.  I've tried using html but it is being stripped from the answer.  I've seen others doing it, but I can't work out how.  Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    The way I do it is, click the button to answer the question. Then, in a different window/tab pull up the page I want to link to and highlight and copy the full http address showing in the address bar. Then, I go back to the answer box and paste the full http address. 

    You can click the "preview answer" button to see if the hyperlink will appear before you actually submit your answer.

    Another way ...

    This is when you don't already have a Hub that answers the question, but you want to create a Hub that would answer the question.

    First, click the green button "answer this question".   You get a textarea box to type your answer.  But don't type anything in that textarea box.   Below that box you will see a gray button that says "make a hub about it".  Click that and start composing your answer in a new hub. 

    If you don't have time to fully finish your Hub, you can save as draft and it will link to the question when you publish the Hub.

    I know the gray button "make a hub about it" looks like it is disabled.  But it is a clickable button and it works.
