How to put click-able links into a post?

Post by Neil Wilson » January 26th, 2014, 11:33 am

Can anyone explain the process of putting a click-able link into a post.

For example: I copied the following URL and then paste it into this post:

aafords.com/aa-chassis/aa-wheels

To use this link it must be copied and then pasted into the URL box of a window. How would this link be made click-able? I have seen other posts with click-able links.
Regards, Neil Wilson

Yes, like that.

So, what is the process to have the link link-able? I need details on how it is done?

Further searching of the Internet tells me that I need to put http:// at the front of the URL. So, this is a test to see if my link is link-able.

Okay,
Further checking into this clickable link indicated that one can also put "www." on the front as well a "http://". So, this is another test.

www.aafords.com

If this words, I will use "www." as I can actually remember it.

Thanks guys for taking a look at aafords.com. This site is just a bare bones skeleton currently (with limited content). I have been concentrating on learning how to use WordPress (web development tool) and figuring out the overall site structure. It will take a few years for me to put in the content.

I now realize that it is not just a matter of cut/paste my article information and photos. Everything needs to be reformatted and photos converted for Internet pages. This will keep me occupied during the winters along with doing the Double A'er newsletter.
Regards, Neil Wilson
