I see some other hubbers that have click able links within there profiles. How do you activate this?
Type in whatever text you want to show for the URL. So let's say you want to put a link to a hub about dogs. You might put "Learn more about dog training." It's called 'anchor text.'
Then highlight the text, click the little chain icon on the toolbar and put in the url (http://www.whatever.com).
That little chain link is in the top row of the capsule when you're typing the text. I remember way back when I was trying to help someone with this, they were looking all over the toolbars at the top of their screen rather just in the capsule box. There is link and then a broken link for when you want to remove a link.
agreed, select the word in edit mood and then click on the chain sign that opens a pop up window. there you have to just insert the URL of the page you want to link and you are done.
That was exactly what KCC Big Country said, except his explanation is much clearer.
just wanted to make sure that a URL should be entered in a pop up box and when I first asked this question couple of moths back I got a similar answer and never understood what to do with the pop up box and closed it without inserting a link even before it was loaded. Then Maheshpathwal taught me how to do it.
The way you explain it now, it makes good sense. I have also read that some people get confused about that. In the future, it would be great if you could be clearer about what you are trying to add to the discussion.

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 have always added my Products via a keyword search but I have been asked to add a couple of products via links instead. I am not sure whether my being in the UK makes a difference but should I be adding links from Amazon.com or from Amazon UK? I know that most of my traffic still...

I read a hub on this subject and tried to figure it out myself, but I am honestly still very confused on how I would go about doing this. If anyone has any tips, suggestions, or step by step instructions that would be wonderful!

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when I go on there and choose the product? Or does this only work for people who have...
