Using HTML anchor tags

From eHive

Jump to: navigation, search

You can include links to other web pages in the Public Description (About this object) field using the HTML a (anchor) tag syntax.

You can see an example of a record with a link in the Public Description field here: http://ehive.com/account/3406/object/2455

This link is done by adding the text:

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlton_Ware" target="_blank">Carlton Ware</a>

The href parameter is the page you wish to link to, in this case "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlton_Ware"

The target parameter is optional. target="_blank" will open the link in a new browser tab or window. Without this parameter, the page will open in the user's current browser tab or window.

Carton Ware in this example is the text to show for this link. You can just repeat the website address if you wish to show that. e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlton_Ware
