    Sinea, I have seen other hubs like yours with lnks highlighted in blue leading to other hubs.

    How does one go about getting this into a hub article?

    Highlight a section of your text.  A pop up window will appear with an icon of a chain link in it.  Click that chain link.  It will ask you for the URL of the site you want to link to - input a copy of the URL (or choose from the suggestions offered).

    You can also look at one of your published hubs, then look at the top of the hub and you will see the suggest links button. Click on that and then you can highlight words in your hub with your mouse. Then the suggest links feature will automatically list hubs you or others have that you can link to. You just click on the hub you want to link to and the suggest links tool will automatically highlight the word. When you are done, click on the hide links button at the top of your hub and you will see the highlighted links in your hub.

    This answers my questions. Thanks Wilderness and Brandon for taking the time to help.  I deeply appreciate your support.

    Yes, the blue indicates that the text is linked to a hub. What you do is take your cursor and swipe it across the words that you want to link to another hub or another article (it can even be someone else's from another website). Then click on the hyperlink icon on the toolbar at the top of the capsule that your text is located in. It will suggest some of your own hubs that you may want to choose from or you can add the url of something else. You'll see the URL space at the top. Now, before you save you should set it to open in a new window. Not everyone does this but you'll keep your readers from getting lost off your page when they click the link. I have a hub called Readers-How to Keep Them that will tell you how to do this.
