Adding a hyperlink in a Blog post and keeping image size consistent

Well, I am on my way to another Yola adventure. I just created a blog page and would like comments in how I might make it even better. I have two questions.

You will notice at the bottom of each review I have links to web sites. I would rather make these hyperlinks instead of the actual url. How do I do this?

I also want to make sure that my images load faster and that they are all the same size. Maybe some HTML would work here?

Any other suggestions? As always, I am always open to new ideas. :)

Hi Randy,

Glad to hear you have given the Yola Blog a try! I think the HTML team will be the best assistance for you with the queries you are posing. They are currently off until next Tuesday, however, I am confident they will be answering you shortly after they return.

In the meantime, a member of our forum may be able to steer you in the right direction as well. Thanks for the patience, Randy!

Thanks Brianna!!

I am starting to figure things out now. Check out the hyperlink at the bottom of my Mark Harrison blog post. It says For More info and opens the link in a new page.

Randy,
The hyperlink works well in blogs. To set it up, type the word or phrase then highlight that word. The link icon in the blog toolbar will become active, click it and choose your link as you would normally.

To make your images the same size use HTML and define your image size in the code. To resize an image from a master then this code works well: <!--<img style="border: 1px(optional); width: (define this)px; height (define this-optional) px;" src="resources/{folder}/imagename.type">-->

You don't have to define both width and height only one is required to resize. If you have images that are all different then you can adjust both dimensions but you may get some skewing if they are not all the same proportions or nearly so.
