How do you make a link showing only the title of something?? And not the whole Http/#&&&&?
Here's an example. If I wanted to make this (Hello, how are you?) into a link, I would
1) Type: Hello, how are you? wherever I want the link to be.
2) Select (highlight) this text that you want to turn into a link.
3) Hover over the infinity symbol in the edit box above all the text. It will say something like "add link." Click this while the text is highlighted below.
4) Add the url (http://www.whateveritis.com) and click save
did you not manage hyperlinking? if i can help please inbox me
here is the secret, you have to use a HTML code:
if you want to produce the word as a link, let say HubPages
so you click on it and go to hubpages.com
you have to type this:
NOTE: I break it down into raws so you can see it, but you need to type it all on the same line, NO SPACES.
hope this helps
Thank you all! You have all been very helpful. I thought it would be hard but it was easy.
You highlight the title you've typed then go to the top of the edit page and click on the little thing that looks like a few pieces of a chain. A screen will come up and you either click on one of the tabs to pull up the title you want (if it's there) or you insert the http of an article you found either on HP or on the web and copy and paste it into the top blank. Then you hit "insert"...the letters of the title will turn blue and you'll know your link is in place. Always check after you publish to make sure your links are good.
It took me awhile to figure this one out, but it works beautifully.

How do I get the f!ng$#! softcore porn ads from Google OFF of my articles! I've contacted Google a number of times but it does no good. Been going on for weeks. The only other place these ads show up is the Words with Friends game (which we call Words with Porn) that I play on FB. ...

How can people click on sites on my profile page?I've added some sites that I'd like people to be able to click on, but they haven't turned blue, so people will not be able to click on them. What do I need to do?

Two of my articles on PetHelpful are showing as having broken links. In the first instance, when I look at the article, the link is a picture. This link http://www.sxc.hu/photo/679862 is showing as broken but is in fact clearly showing as a black cat drinking so I think this may be a 'glitch'? In...
