    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 ( and click save

    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
    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

    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.
