Hot Links : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Can someone please tell me how to make hot links? I would like to post some but don't know how.

There is a thread on this somewhere but here goes. I think this is the easiest. Now keep in mind I can't type what needs to be typed or it would become a link. So where you see a [ below, make it a <, same for ], make it a > ... Got that?

[a href="http://SITE"]DESCRIPTION[/a]

SITE is the page you want to link to ...

DESCRIPTION is the text you want to appear as the link name ... Link here ... for example.

Remember, change [ to < and ] to > ... give it a try... <:)=

Use your browser to view the HTML source of this page. Look at the way the following link is constructed:

Link to Yahoo!

The a and /a mark the start and the end of the anchor tag, which is what a hyperlink is in HTML. The target for the hyperlink goes between the double quotes. The text of the hyperlink goes between the start tag and end anchor tags.

To make a hyperlink in this forum, simply type in the entire anchor tag into text box along with your regular text.

Hope this helps.

Some really good books on growing organically, and growing / harvesting year round, even in the Northeast:

The New Organic Grower Four Seasons Harvest

both by Eliot (Elliot?) Coleman. He has another new book out about winter harvesting, the name escapes me at the moment.

My favorite homesteading magazine: Countryside and Small Stock Journal, edited by JD Belanger Has a web site, you'll have to search for it. He's gone all out to bring Y2K awareness to his readers - the past several issues and all remaining issues from now till 2000 have a preparation emphasis.

Another favorite magazine, although from last look-see the editor DGI, although his column is always thought-provoking: Small Farmers Journal, edited by Lynn Miller. Emphasis on farming with horse power

Sysman: Your fault I'm taking up space but if this works kudo's to you. It's a link to a Canadian, Gary North type Web site. See comments with news articles. Gary North type site

Sysman: Your a Techno-God. Always wondered how the links were added. Thanks

Once you have the hot links cased, slice once large bell pepper and 1 red onion. Saute in a little olive oil. Add hot links and saute until links are done. Serve on french bread rolls along with a nice cold beer. It's the best!
