Here's a clickable link: [In reply to] Can't Post

Click here.

And FYI, this is how you do it:

{url "http://elvenbutterflies.tumblr.com/post/54881582834/the-moment-weve-all-been-waiting-for-my-day-with"}Click here{/url}

But simply replace the curly brackets { } with square brackets [ ]. Or you can type:

{url}http://elvenbutterflies.tumblr.com/post/54881582834/the-moment-weve-all-been-waiting-for-my-day-with{/url}

Now, off to read. Thanks for letting us know!

Your link doesn't work [In reply to] Can't Post

but I've made MotS's clickable.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Well ... that's embarrassing. [In reply to] Can't Post

Any idea what might have happened Ataahua? It was working before I made the edit (adding how to make a link clickable). Promise!

I'm not sure, sorry Daniel. [In reply to] Can't Post

When I make links I use the link tool in the tool bar (the chain icon on the far right, just above the message box) - it's the foolproof cheat's way of live-linking.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

Hooray for Samm! Smile

I ended up just google searching for it and it was a good read [In reply to] Can't Post

Not much derived from it because she had to sign confidentiality papers, but she still said things about how thranduil has a great sword, the acting was spectacular, the cast was super nice, and goes in to great detail with that.... But, she does tell us about bombur's fighting spoon, and how thranduil has two crowns, one for his kingdom and the other for battle

I played around with it a bit and I think... [In reply to] Can't Post

the problem was that you somehow got an extra "http://" in your URL. But your examples didn't have it, so your tutorial was correct. Smile

One other thing to be aware of: The instructions you gave are for Markup links, not HTML, so if you're using Basic Editor, you have to make sure that you select "Markup" or "Markup and HTML" for your post style or it will just show all the code and not be clickable.

Since I use Advanced Editor, I use the link (chain) icon for my URLs.

1. Highlight the text you want to use for your link, i.e. "Click here"
2. Click the Link icon
3. Delete the existing "http://" in the popup box and paste in your URL
4. Click Submit

And there you go. Smile

Thanks Silverlode :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for having a fiddle (and editing it so it works). Maybe I typed in the extra http:// without thinking. I've always preferred basic editor, only so I can see the code. And I use Chrome, so Advanced Editor is absent. Wink

Thanks mods!

As for the article, I thought it was great. What a lovely experience. I'd turn in to a screaming fan if it was me, as well.

She got her earring hung up in Thorin's hair? [In reply to] Can't Post

LOL! That entire story is so sweet, and she'd even made cards for much of the cast - what a great kid she is, I wish her all the best in her recovery! Heart

What a great story! [In reply to] Can't Post

Sounds beyond amazing- I'm sure there are quite a number of us here who are just the teensiest bit envious of Samm's experiences in Wellington! She deserves every minute of it and I wish her health and happiness for the future.

What a sweet, heartwarming story! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's nice to be reminded that something (relatively) insignificant as a book/movie about a small person with hairy feet can have a real impact in someones life.

My Sam Gamgee is indeed a reflexion of the English soldier, of the privates and batmen I knew in the 1914 war, and recognized as so far superior to myself- J.R.R. Tolkien
