I have noticed that people are able to insert a website link behind a word used in their text capsules.
For ex: The new book can be found here (with the word here in blue to click on and connect with the website)
How do you do this?
Hi there. On the capsule at the top right, there is a horseshoe looking figure that you click on and it brings up a box to insert the address link you want to link to. (ie: www. or http) After you print in the link click 'done' and it is all set.
keep trying, you'll get it. with the capsule open to write, highlight the word and click on the link icon. it should open a box where you copy and paste the url you want to use. then you close the box and it should work. good luck.
Thank you very much for you help! I tried to use the chainlink capsule in the text capsule box and it is grayed out so that I cannot use it. I will try again and I'm sure I'll figure out what I'm doing wrong.
There are two chain links, one has a symbol as if it is being broken.
Highlight the selected text you wan t to link, than click the first chain link icon.
A window pops up (make sure you arent blocking pop-ups maybe?)
it has a spot to insert an url, the second fiels has a dropdown so you can quickly link to your own hubs
the second chanlink is for removing a link
I'm glad you asked the question. I was wondering the same thing!
I just tried doing it. I highlighted the word I want the link behind and then click on the chain box. The box seems active (not grayed out) but nothing happens. I'm at a loss.
Yoy have to highlight the text you want to link before clicking the link icon.
Then when insert link box comes up, cursor will be flashing in spot to type in the link address you want to use.
Then just click "insert" at the bottom of the box and voila' you have linked text.
Aha! I do have my computer set to block pop-ups. I bet that is the problem. Thank you!

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when I go on there and choose the product? Or does this only work for people who have...

When I highlight some text and click the link icon while in edit mode, the next window is locked up. I is supposed to let me enter a URL and click save. But all I can do is exit out of that window. I also can't click any of the tabs to change it to show Amazon links or other hubs. It is stuck...

How do I place an image into a paragraph of my article instead of separately, in between paragraphs? I used to be able to double-click on the image and it would set it that way.

I have relatively simple question.I was preparing a new blog and wanted to add some links into the main article. I tried using simple HTML <a href="url>name</a> to add the links, but then the code showed as well. For editing at home, using NotePad or Word, is there some...
