Thread: Text link

  1. #1

    Default Text link

    Hello!

    If I write a random word in mozilla (water) for example, how can I attach a hyperlink to it so that when one clicks it it opens a hyperlink like (in this case: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water) or any other link that I want. I tried this add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...don/text-link/ but without success, I`m not sure if it is correct tool at all.

    Are you writing html code for a webpage? I'm not sure what you mean by
    "write a random word in mozilla".

    Code
    -----
    <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water">water</a>
    -----

    might do what you want.

    Just highlight the word, click on pulldown "Insert" then Link (or usr
    CTRL+L) and fill out the needed info.

    Do you mean by highlighting that I should paint the text in blue? If I have a text like water written somewhere and I paint it and then click with left mouse I see the options: Add to dictionary, undo, cut, copy, copy URI (no uri found), paste, delete, select all, open in new tab(no URI found), Check spelling, languages. There is no option for "Insert".

    Really confused on what you are trying to do?

    As said, I want to write a word (water was just an example) so that when one clicks it, it directs the clicker to a web page that one has determined.

    Like I would now write water and when one clicks it, it opens a web page like https://www.wikipedia.org/ for example

    Ok where do you plan to write this word?

    Do you want a icon on the desktop to link to a site? If so and assuming KDE right click desktop select create new then link to location follow steps from there.

    That will depend on what's allowed and what's in the user interface of
    the website you're using.

    That's not a function of Firefox/Chrome/whatever. It's a function of the
    website.

    Are you the administrator of those pages? How do you intend to write on
    them?

    You can not write on any random web page you find on internet. You can
    only write on some pages that are specifically designed so that you can
    write content: a forum, a wiki, the comment link on blogs... And then,
    to add a link to that text you are allowed to write, you have to follow
    the instructions of that site.

    So, if you want to add a link to a forum post that you are writing in
    this forum, you have to ask on the forum help place of this forum - not
    in the Linux application forum.

    Typically, if it is allowed, you see a little icon on the editor to add
    a link.

    If it is not allowed, forget it.
