Regarding the link to an item you uploaded to the gallery . . .
How do you get it to read like "here is mine" (where mine is underlined and that is the link you click) versus just copying and pasting the link, which is a big long thing with numbers and all? I know they both get you to the same place, but one just looks nicer than the other, I think!

It's easy:

Copy the link location.
Type the words you want to be clickable (like 'here's mine').
Select/highlight the words you've just typed that you want clickable
Click on the icon that looks like the world with a chainlink on it
Paste the link into the box that comes up (make sure you copy over what's there otherwise you may end up with too many 'http://' codes and a broken link)


That's it.

Let us know if you need more help.

I must be missing a step, because when I try that, here's how it looks:

Here's Minehttp://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=19183&ppuser=2796

I have a feeling I'm missing something really obvious . . . ? :confused:

TIA!

You're right! I did miss a step! :eek:

I'm so sorry.

I've since edited the directions above and inserted the missing step - it is now step 3 (you have to select your text before clicking the icon).

I hope you are all set now.

Wow, that's cool! I never knew . . . I always wondered what those icons were for. Thanks for teaching me! :D
