I know this LOOKS like great literature, but I'm just trying to learn how to hypertext....
Great literature. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Yep, they're definitely going to be studying Kit Duncan in lit classes a hundred years from now - I can see the question on the final -
"Who was the world famous writer who never learned how to hypertext?"
Every student who ever takes that test will get the answer RIGHT!
Except that kid sitting along the back row by the windows who slept all the way through the semester. I just KNOW he or she is going to get ALOT of things wrong.
My guess is that he, or she, will be president some day.
from the files of MrsRaptor:
the syntax is [a href="url"]Link text[/a] Just replace the [ and ] with the appropriate left and right arrows and replace what is inside the quotes with the actual URL to what you are linking to. Where it says "link text" you put in the person's name or the title of what you are linking to. Et. Viola... you have linked.
OK - let's see, what link shall I try to attach to this post...
OH! I know. My YouTube channel
Heck, THAT can't be right. All I did there was cut and past.
Let me try something else here. OK - Let's say I want to say something like, "Hey, folks, check out this great YouTube channel of Kit Duncan's!"
Only, let's say I want the words "Kit Duncan's" to be hypertexted.
Now, let's see if I can do it thata way.
[Nope, that didn't work.]
Here's the new sentence, with hypertexting (cross your fingers, hang onto the good china, plug up your ears - and if you can do all that at the same time you're alot more talented than I am - I just tried doing it and I slapped myself stupid!
OK - Here's the sentence:
Hey, folks, check out this great YouTube channel of Kit Duncan's!
[No. That neither....]
And then, from the sheer goodness of her heart MrsRaptor steps in and says:
Allow me to show you how to do it...
WITHOUT the left and right arrows...
"Hey, folks, check out this great YouTube channel of[a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/kitd56"]Kit Duncan's[/a]
Let's try this again: "Hey, folks, check out this great YouTube channel of Kit Duncan's!"
Oh, my very GOODNESS! I'm a flippin' GENIUS! A GENIUS, I tell you!!!
OK - Maybe not, but I can cut and paste with the best of 'em. MrsRaptor - THANK You!!! I'm leaving this up in case anyone else might find it a handy little tool....
And hey, if it draws a few folks over to my very lovely little channel on YouTube, so be it -
Oh. What's that? You want a SAMPLE??? OK. Let me see what I can come up with...
Oh, this one's kind of fun...
That's me on the right playing the spamitar that I built, and Ella Rose on the left - we accidentally went headless. We hate it when that happens. And no, Ella Rose don't usually wear what she's wearing there - we had planned on doing a Hillbilly Opry video but decided not to at the last minute.
OH! Let me CORRECT that:
