Link Button: A Useful Textbroker Tool
Textbroker has noticed that some authors are having issues using HTML in their orders. Our clients periodically request very minimal HTML coding, and the most common type is adding a URL to the text. You may not know this, but our system actually has an easy-to-use button that inputs HTML for you. This is the safest way to use HTML because sometimes word processors, like Microsoft Word, use smart quotes that the Textbroker system doesn't understand.

You may not know this, but our system actually has an easy-to-use button that inputs HTML for you. This is the safest way to use HTML because sometimes word processors, like Microsoft Word, use smart quotes that the Textbroker system doesn’t understand.
Here are the steps to use the linking button:
Write your order in the Textbroker system or copy and paste the text from your word processor into the system. The two words using HTML for this example below are highlighted.
Highlight the word you’d like to add HTML to.
Now click the chain icon. Note the chain icon is commonly used in different programs to show you’re able to add HTML.
A window will pop up where you can add the URL you’d like to use for the link. Input the URL in the textbox and click “OK.”
Repeat these steps for any other word you’d like to link, and they will appear with the proper HTML as seen below:
And that’s all there is to it!
Sometimes, human errors are made when trying to type in this code manually, so this HTML button can be very helpful in the future. Please feel free to email us at [email protected] with any questions.

Is AP the same as APA? Or are they two different styles? I'm mostly familiar with MLA, but have done a few history papers for a class in Chicago Style. I've heard of APA, but I never had to use it in college, although I knew some psychology majors that did. I know APA stands for American Psychological Association. Since you mention AP in the blog, is that short for APA style or is it AP as in Associated Press?
I'm just curious as I've never had to use it before myself. I'm new to Text Broker and freelance writing in general. My writing sample recieved a 3 star, and so far I've only written a few 2 star movie summaries. So nothing styleguide-wise to worry about yet, whether AP or APA. I find it hard to believe that there are two English styleguides with such similar names/initials, but just wanted to ask, since I wasn't 100% certain.

This is a good refresher course. In the past, I always received perfect or near-perfect scores on English placement exams. In the intervening years, most of what I thought I knew was disregarded by various editors. Imagine what fun it is switching among AP, Chicago, APA, MLA and Turabian.

This is good to know. I didn't know I could be on so many teams at the same time.

Very detailed and informative.

Why are we judging orders based on stupid things like AP style guides? Most of this stuff is web content where that stuff doesn't matter at all. This isn't journalism, it's supposed to be engaging content. You're turning off a lot of good writers off by holding them to silly benchmarks that mean absolutely nothing in the real world.

How do I include images?

When I select the word I want to house the hyperlink, the word becomes a part of the hyperlink I do not have to retype that word correct?
Cody Christensen 27. August 2018 - 21:45
That is correct 🙂

This link button does not work for me. It flashes on my screen, but it will not allow me to enter anything. I have gone into settings on my browser to ensure that popups are allowed. That is not the problem. I have emailed support, but it is the weekend. If anyone knows how I can overcome this roadblock–please reply! Thank you.

It still does that today. I am having issues with it. The client I write for often will not take my four articles because the link button is not hyperlinking.
