A common frustration for commenters is how do you write links in comments on blog posts.

What is HTML?
HTML is short for “Hyper Text Markup Language” which is a language used to tell a browser how to organise the layout of a web page it has downloaded from the Internet. It influences if text is bold, italics, a heading, bullet points.
When you write a post or page inside your blog dashboard you don’t worry HTML because the Visual Editor does it for you. If you click on the HTML tab it shows the HTML code in your text.
Here Is the HTML you use to write links:
<a href=”http://theedublogger.edublogs.org/”>check out The Edublogger</a>
Make sure you close the tag with </a> and enclosed the website URL with quotation marks (needs to look like this “http://theedublogger.edublogs.org/”)

- There are some blog platforms that don’t allow you to use HTML in comments
You can also write HTML in text widgets which you add to your sidebar to:
