Some things we need to learn to blog better (feedback greatly appreciated)

April 1, 2008

1. how can we make links blue, so that people can click on them to read whatever we are referencing?

I’ll update this post with new questions as they come up……..

all of us

UPDATE: Problem 1 has been SOLVED, thanks to “ama” for providing us with an easy answer to the question.

2. How do we incorporate html into comments to others’ blog entries? We’ve seen many commenters adding links to articles they have found or posts they have written about a certain topic or topics in response to whatever they are commenting on.

Problem posted by Ivan, solution sought by all

UPDATE: Problem 2 has been SOLVED, thanks to “Rose” for providing us with an easy answer to the question. I did some experimentation and whoever was writing, was correct. Yay I understood something.

3. Is there a way to convert javascript to some other kind of script, for use in wordpress? WordPress.com does not support javascript so I cannot put widgets on my blog that use that script. Widgetbox.com has really neat widgets, but unfortunately they all use javascript….



  1. When you’re typing in the entry, click the tab on the upper left corner that lets you view the code. Then you can type html directly into the entry box.

    You left me a hotlink to your blog, so you must know the html to make such a link, but here it is anyway: a href=”url” what you want the link to be called /a – with these little dudes >< in the appropriate places.

    If you prefer to stay in the “visual” mode while making your entry, there are “link” and “unlink” buttons. I’ve never used them, so I’m not sure exactly how they work, but no doubt you could figure it out with a little experimentation.

  2. this is how the link and unlink buttons work. you highlight the word you want to be a link (i.e. blue). click on the link button: a box will appear. enter the url you want that word to link to, and bingo! done.

    have fun! links galore!

  3. Rose: I figured out how to put links into entries, but how can I do that for comments I write on others’ posts? is the a href thing for that? do I need the quotation marks? are there two sets or just one?

    is it or ?



    and thanks, ama, I got that one now. the links for entries……..thank you. It’s made blogging a whole lot easier……..

  4. well………I think I solved my own problem………using the advice given by Rosemarie. Thanks!
