    How to add URLs to Hubs?

    I was wanting to include a link to another hub in my newest hub that I am working on.  As you may know, I am new to hubpages and I was wondering if anyone could explain to me how to do this.  Thank you in advance.  Also, if you have some free time I am still requesting constructive critsm, so please be sure to stop by and leave me some feedback.  I will be sure to check out your hubs as well! smile

    You can either use the link capsule or text link.

    In each capsules' edit mode there is a link tool on the top right.  Once that is done you can go into HTML on the left and add

    target="_blank"

    after making a space at the end of the link right after the quotation mark.  This will let your readers stay on your page while they take a look at the link rather than them having to find your hub again. 

    This cannot be done in links capsules, only in text capsules. You probably want to search the Learning Center and hubs written on the topic for more details, especially since others may be able to explain this better than I can. 

    Going to check out some of your hubs soon.  Anyone who accepts constructive criticism is going to do well at HP.  smile

    Emi, you can either use in-text links or insert a link capsule in edit mode. I'd strongly urge you to make use of contextual links rather than the capsules for a new hub. This is because I've noticed hubs with a link capsule take about a week longer to be indexed by google.
    If you're not conversant with the HTML stuff, hyperlink using microsoft word by right-clicking on your url.
