I placed some text in a text widget. I placed a border around the widget but I want to link some of the text to another page. I tried placing the code into the code but that did not work. I tried to edit the text and make the link that way but can't get inside the widget so can anyone help.

Hi Joe

I have looked at the code in your Text Wiget box, and it looks like you have done it correctly.

This is the code from you site:
<div style="border: 2px solid green; width: 200px; height: 211px;">
<p><font size="4"><a href=";
<p><font size="4">Easiness</font></p>
<p><font size="4">Prep time</font></p>
<p><font size="4">Cook time</font></p>
<p><font size="4">Ready time</font><br></p></div>

You will see the link appear when you view your page in "Preview" mode. To link pages that are on your website, you only need to add the page name, for example:

<a href=";

can be...

<a href="chocolate-cookie-recipe.php">Servings</a>

The link you have pasted does not work because there is a .html and .php in the web address: Please note that Yola's URLs end in .php, so the correct URL is

Hope that helps!

Thank you
