    Some Hubs contain links (in blue) embedded into a paragraph.  How do you do that?

    Rather than a separate link box below my paragraphs I'd like to be able to do what others do and simply have a word or phrase (in blue letters like I've I've seen in other Hubs) that readers can click that will take them directly to the website I am referring to.  This is especially important to me for citing sources of information.  I am also interested in promoting other Hubbers by embedding links to articles that are relevant to the topic I am discussing.  Can someone explain in detail how this is done?

    I have the same doubt and I still have no answer to it. I have been in hub pages for two years and I am not sure how it is done. I think an answer to your question can clarify my doubts too.

      Mathira, the two answers that I got from peeples and missirupp were exactly what I needed.  I hope they help you too.  Best of luck!

    Go into edit mode of your hub, click on the capsule you want to edit, highlight the word you want to embed. When you highlight it you will see two "chainlink" looking things on your toolbar inside your capsule, near the horse shoe looking thing. Click the one that doesn't look broke. When you click it you will then be able to put the URL of where you want that link to go. Put the URL in and hit save. This is how I do it, please ignore my lack of knowing the correct terms for these things. I know how to do them, I've just never learned the correct terms!

    I hope this message doesn't show up twice. Tried to send it once. Anyways, after you hook your highlighted words to a link like previously suggested, you'll want to edit the HTML so it opens a new window to your link. Otherwise the reader is taken away from your page. I learned how to do it with the hub Readers-Keep them on your page by Sienas Pies. It looks complicated but it's really very easy.

      Thank you so much for adding this piece of info, missirupp!  I read Readers-Keep as suggested.  You're right; it looks complicated at first but I think I can manage. smile  I sincerely appreciate the help.

    Hi. Here is what the html should look like:

      I appreciate your effort nerdenterprises. smile  Missirupp sent me a link to a Hub that walked me through it.  I've included the link here for other new HubPage members. http://sinea-pies.hubpages.com/hub/Readers Thank you all again for your help!
