WordPress.com – Links


WordPress offers a variety of different ways in which you can add links to your posts and/or pages. Some of these include:

  1. Highlight the text you want to turn into a link.
  2. Then click the link button which you can find in the toolbar.
  3. A pop-up window will appear that will allow you to configure options for the link including the Link URL, Target, Title and Class:
    Link URL – The URL of the link (include http:// at the start for external websites)
    Target – Select if you want the link to open in a new window
    Title – Title of the link when a visitor hovers over it (a small tooltip will appear with the title)
    Class – Advanced. Specify a CSS class for the link
  4. After you have inputted the desired options, click the Insert button, and the highlighted text will change to the color blue with an underline to signify a link.

To create a link using the HTML editor:

  1. Highlight the text you want to link.
  2. Click the link button on the toolbar.
  3. A popup will appear asking for the link URL.
  4. Type or paste in the URL, click the OK button and the highlighted text will be wrapped with the HTML link code.

If you try to put this (for example)


into the Add Link page, the @ gets removed and breaks the link.

Instead, put this there


If you re-edit the link the @ will go again so you need to redo it in that case.
