  3. When you find a link to use, copy and paste the URL on links.txt
  4. Underneath the URL type a description and/or word to use for the underlined link
Continue repeating the above with a space between every site and description until you have found the links you would like to use.

STEP TWO - ADD LINKS TO YOUR PAGE

  1. Insert the following code on your biography where you would like the link to appear:
    ^ a href = "blank space " ^ blank space ^/a ^
    Note ^ is used for tags because less than and greater than symbols are reserved for code
    Add carriage returns so this code is on its own line for readability
  2. Copy and paste the URL from your links wordpad between the double quotes in the code:
    ^a href = "http://www.crpc.rice.edu/CRPC/GT/knorth/Web/WebCode.html"^blank space ^/a^
  3. Cut the word from your biography that will be used for the hyperlink
    or copy the description from the link wordpad. Paste this before the end tag.
    ^a href = "http://www.crpc.rice.edu/CRPC/GT/knorth"^Web Mastering Lessons ^/a^
When finished the link will look like this on your page. To find instructions go to Web Mastering Lessons

CLEAN UP YOUR FOLDERS - BE ORGANIZED

  1. Delect the URL's that you have already used and don't need from your links.txt file
    Keep this text file open to save links as you find for future use on other web pages.
  2. You can also bookmark pages and copy and paste from that file.
    Create your own favorites folder if you would like. But, anyone can delete this.
