How to add your websites URL in a blog post?

I was trying to add my websites URL to the bottom of my posts thinking that perhaps when the post gets lifted up to all other social media, it would link back to my site, however, the usual "link" button doesnt seem to work. Would I need to use Disque for this? What would the code be if this were the case.

Thanks

The link editor worked for me in the blog. I typed my website name and then selected the first option: "Page in this site" then I selected "index". Are you following those steps? If so can you post a link to your blog so I can take a look?

Hi Laura

When I go to my blog page I click "new post"

The editor box comes up, I can type and change the size and font, add images etc ... but the link box doesnt work. (along with text colour and highlight, but I don't use these). They don't come up blue when you move the cursor over them like with all the other buttons with options available at the top.

I've tried highlighting the words first, but nada.

Is there a way to add your URL to every post, without actually having to type it in every time, like a signature on an email?

I've managed to add one to my last post by using the HTML edit button. Is their just a way to always add with out having to go down that route?

I was going to suggest, your other option is to add it via HTML.

I'm not able to reproduce this. Can you please try from an alternate browser and see if the same thing happens?

Will,

You can add this into the settings area of your blog under manage. This will then display as a signature for each and every blog post.

OK?

I've also got other code in this disqus box. It's share button code. Would adding this code get in it's way?

No. You can add lots of codes there.

The code above is incomplete. Nothing would be visible if it was in HTML.

Try: <a href="http://www.a-class-driving.com/"> a-class driving .com</a>

Just tried this code in a new post, didn't show up. I added it under the disqus section in manager and settings.

Is this not the place?

Does it need to be added elsewhere?

Here is my blog address if it helps to look at it

Hi Will,
