HTML Linking

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.

Here are the steps to use the linking button:

Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

Highlight the word you’d like to add HTML to.

Step 3:

Now click the chain icon. Note the chain icon is commonly used in different programs to show you’re able to add HTML.

Step 4:

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.”

Step 5:

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 authors@textbroker.com with any questions.

Thank you SO much for including this tutorial. I had searched the forum to no avail. From now on, I will come to Tutorials first with my questions.

A great help.  I have been afraid to try to write articles that wanted links inserted.

This is very helpful. Thanks.

Now it makes me wonder if all of my energy of inserting hyperlinks from my word document was effective or not.  I will now use the system hyperlink to ensure proper accuracy.
