Question 1: Do you do this simply by typing in the HTML? (i.e. <a href="blah blah blah") There does not appear to be a tool in the comment text box, as there is when using capsules.
Question 2: Is it frowned upon or bad form, based on community norms, to post links to your hubs (if the content is related) in the comment streams of other hubs? I know in some communities that it is. What is the accepted practice on HubPages?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to Hub Pages.
Just use the link address starting with http:// No HTML code is needed. (I think that just www may work too.)
If a hub of yours is directly related to what is being discussed in a forum thread, then linking to it is fine.
But you need to be providing good, relevant information in your link - not just a sales pitch for your services.
Because the people here know how to use the "deny" and "report" links that appear in every hub and forum post.
URLs will be automatically hyperlinked in comments, but no HTML is allowed. Links in comments all have nofollow applied to them. Despite this, my impression is that leaving links in comments is frowned upon by most good authors. At the very least, the burden of proof will be on the commenter to show that they aren't "spamming" -- you will be presumed guilty until proven innocent.
P.S. -- If too many of your comments are marked by authors as "spam", you risk having your account penalized or closed.

The same person has twice commented on my hubs leaving a link for a related product, I think; I have not clicked on the links. She joined 8 months ago, but has no hubs, followers or following. Her only activity is commenting and posting links. I'm surprised she is still here.

It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting these comments even though they are well intentioned. It will better for your...

We all know that it is against Google's terms of service to link to sites that sell firearms or ammunition.While it may be "fine" to write a review of a shotgun, or what have you, it is at the same time a violation to link to a gun dealer's site...even for an image credit.So forth, and so...

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

This has probably been addressed elsewhere but I haven't found the answer yet. Is it ok to post a link to your own hub in the comments section to someone else's hub on the same or similar subject? I just found such a post in a comment on one of my hubs and don't know whether its a good...

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...
