PSA about posting links as a mobile user

Hi everyone. Here's some simple code you can type to post a link even when you're mobile.

First, you type <

Then a href =

After the = is where you put in your website. You need the full address, such as "http://www.google.com"

Include the quotes around your web address.

Then type another >

Like this without spaces

< a href = " http://www.google.com " >

^^ you do need the space between a href though.

After that, type your webpage out again, this time you can shorten it. In blogs you see people embed relevant topics or date in their post. Sometimes they make it obvious by saying "you can find the recipe here" and have the link included in the word 'here'.

Anyway, once you're done posting the web address or some clever remark, you need to type < / a > (with no spaces) to tell the link to stop.

There ya go! I'm on my phone but I just posted a link to the best chocolate chip cookies here.

Enjoy ladies! It takes a bit of practice/extra time, but I hope that helps!

I admire your desire to educate the ladies of CM on linking on mobile.

I hope you aren't too disappointed when they continue to post stuff and say "I'm mobile and don't know how to link."

I knew the code for this, but wasn't aware html worked on here! (It used to not work, back in the day)

Ok. It's pretty simple. Just thought I would pass the info. Thanks for the bump.

Yep, it works now, though it is finicky with edits.

Save the code as a shortcut and then you can type a certain thing, like "html", and the code is there. Boom!

look! A link! And I'm mobile!
