hyperlink

OK. I see the hyperlink icon. But inserting the code didn't work.  I did a search and could not find instructions...

How do you do a hyperlink here?

does this not work?

edit: this worked for me. I had to type the full URL including HTTP and then "insert into post"

edit 2: I did it on PC not on mobile

Thanks @pattmayne

My PC is fucked up so that may be the problem. It works for 90% of what I want to do, so I postpone replacing it.

 

Just to check, here is one way I tried it:

1) Highlight the text I want to hyperlink

2) Click on the code icon

3) In the window the highlighted text appears

4) Cut and paste the whole URL, replacing the highlighted text

5) Click insert into post

 

This is the result :

So I either did a step wrong or it's just my fucked up PC.

I did it like this (not by selecting anything):

1. Put my cursor where I want the link (nothing selected)

2. Press the link button on the panel

3. Fill in the info

4. Press "insert link."

OK I'll try that

Oh. duh. There's the problem.

the too polite astromomer

 

I was pressing the code icon- it looks like this <>, then trying to do the hyper link from that. What does that  code thing do anyway?

So I just now used the link icon, the correct icon to make a hyperlink,  and that's easy, so problem solved.

Anyway, thanks @pattmayne, mighty decent of you to help me out.
