Linking

There are a few guidelines you should keep in mind when creating links in your blog posts:

  • Create a hyperlink that works, don't just type in the URL.
  • Use a descriptive label that indicates where the link goes.
  • Do not use 'click here' or the URL itself as a label (see #5 of our [[https://intranet.sydney.edu.au/working/marketing-communications/web-work-resources/writing-for-web.php]]).

To create a link in Movable Type:

  1. Get the URL for the site to which you are linking
  2. Enter the text for the link label
  3. Highlight the entire text by selecting it
  4. Click the link button in the toolbar at the top of the post entry box (it looks like a chain)
  5. Enter the URL into the pop-up box and click ok.

Using Safari?

The toolbar feature of Movable Type does not appear if you are using Safari.

TO create a link in Safari use the following html code:

<a href="URL of link">Link Label</a>

Example:

<a href="http://sydney.edu.au">University of Sydney</a>
