to post a link to website, you can either write out the entire url of your site.
ex: http://example.com
or, you can highlight text, go to the links bar, and type in the url of your site there.

Hi Kelvin,

Where do you want the link to be?

Often in numerous programs / web apps you just type the full URL including the http:// and it will auto make it into a link.

In Yola to make a link from 1 site to another you do this: Click here for a tutorial

Also the html code (dont be scared) is actually very simple to make a link...

<!--

It goes like this,

<a href="http://yoursite.yolasite.com">LINK TEXT GOES HERE</a>

Change yoursite.yolasite.com to your own URL and change the LINK TEXT GOES HERE to anything you like.

-->

On the page the code above looks like this:
LINK TEXT GOES HERE

Hope this helps - Lee.

Hey Kevin,

Have you tried Lee's method above? Did it work?

Maybe you could tell us the site you wish to add the link too.

Hi Kevin,

If the site you want to add a link to allows html use this:

<a href="http://kelvinakinde.yolasite.com">Kelvin Akinde</a>

-->This should add a link to the site that would look like this:
Kelvin Akinde

Does this make sense?

yeah you can just type it out with the http:// and it should automatically make a link to it.
