Why isn't there a video to walk people through on how and where to insert URL's? They talk about hyperlinks, referral links etc, but for people like myself it's all foreign without a diagram. Not everyone is computer savvy.
Also, why aren't my questions published?
It's probably because most people do have some basic idea of how to use a word processing program these days.
You make a hyperlink exactly the way you would in Microsoft Word. Type in the words you want to make into a link (e.g. the name of the website). Use your cursor to highlight those words. Click on the chain link (in the toolbar at the top of the text box). A box will appear - type or paste in the URL. Save. You're done.
This is a basic method that applies everywhere, it's not specific to HubPages. That's why it's not covered in the Help section. If you have other similar questions, try typing them into Google and you'll probably find How To articles that will help you.
You've got a learning curve ahead of you, but hang in there - you'll get it. Please note, though, that HubPages is not a blogging site. Think of your sub-domain as a magazine full of interesting, informative articles. Hubs are typically much longer than blog posts - at least 400 words and sometimes as long as 1,500 words, and explore a subject thoroughly rather than just making an observation or expressing an opinion.
Hghlight the words you want to turn into a link, click the chain link icon, insert address in pop up box, click ok.
And what do you mean questions not published? If they break HP rules, they would be moderated by staff?
Thanks Marisa, yes I can use Word, I am happy to say I managed to get 11 hubs up and running, but now when I go to write a hub it keeps returning to the beginning and I have to keep starting all over again~!

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...

How do you actually insert an affiliate link in a text capsule?My understanding is that you are allowed up to two affiliate links to a single domain in a hub. In a text capsule, I selected a couple of words and clicked on the unbroken chain icon as I usually do when inserting a link, and then...

Not allowed to post external link in Hubs any more??I'm trying to add a link to an article I wrote on another site with an explanation of PCOS, which is off-topic for the hub I'm writing. I just want readers to have the option of accessing it without derailing the current article. I can...
