How do I create a link in my hub without losing the reader to another article?
I know there's a way to create a link in my hub without directing the reader to another hub or website, thereby losing the reader. Thank you for your help.
If you want the link to open in a new tab while your article stays open in the current tab, you have to go into the html editor and add this in side the "a" tag:
The "a" tag is the pointy brackets with
a href="some website address"
inside of it. Sorry that I can't write the actual html code for you, the answer form here will eat it up, so to speak, and it won't be visible after I hit the submit button. Hopefully you got the gist though!
Paxwill is correct on the code you enter: target=_blank"
This may help clarify what the final code should look like:
1. You need to be in the edit mode of the text capsule that contains the link.
2. Click on html at the top left of your text capsule. This will show all the html code for that text capsule.
3. Find the link within the coded block. It will look like this:
4. Insert the code: target="_blank" just before the last quote marks and before the last > mark.
5. Your link will now look like this: href="http: //stephaniehenkel.hubpages.com/Wanderlust-Why-People-Travel" target="_blank">
6. At the top of the text capsule, click on "Save". You'll get a message saying the code needs to be cleaned up. Say "OK".
7. Save your changes. Once you are out of edit mode for the capsule, you can test your link to see if it opens a new tab.
*Note: I've added an extra space in the sample links above so that they are disabled as active links in this answer.
I agreed with paxwill and Stephanie Henkel !
I created a hub with pictorial representation of the steps.

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I just published an article on my hub. I want to post another article on that same hub. What is the next step to doing that? Do I have to start another hub? The articles would be in the same topic catagory. Sorry, I am new and am just learning the ropes.Lambservant

I have another article that 'ties' in with one of my hubpages articles, can I or should I link...them to each other? This other article is on a different website that I write on.

Sorry, guys, I'd search this better, but I just don't know the right terms. I want to link to another one of my hubs within my current one I'm writing, but do so where the title is in the text of the new hub, and it's just a blue link to the other.I'm not sure what that's called, so not sure...
