Another Sunset Sunday. Do you have a beautiful sunset to share? We'd love to see it. Just post a link in your comment, or just tell us it's there and we'll click on your name to find it.
I am scheduling this post to come out while I'm out of town. I may not have Internet access for a few days so may not get to read your comments or see your posts. But I'll be back and play catch up then. Enjoy.
HOW TO PUT A LINK TO YOUR POST IN YOUR COMMENT
In case you don't know how to post a link in your comment here is a "how to":
Let's say I wanted to say something like: "My sunset photo is here." As you can see the word "here" looks a little different because it is a link to a sunset post. To do that in my comment I replace the word "here" with the following code:
<a href="http://www.scottlawphotography.com/2010/08/sunset-sunday-27.html"> here. </a>
So this is what you would type into the comments box: My sunset photo is<a href="http://www.scottlawphotography.com/2010/08/sunset-sunday-27.html"> here. </a>. But what everyone would see when they read your comment is "My sunset photo is here." Without the quotation marks.
Two very important points:
1. It does not matter what you type before the code. If you wanted to say "To see the most beautiful photo ever taken" or whatever you wanted to say. It just doesn't matter. Whatever you type before the code will show exactly as you type it. You don't have to type anything at all. If you want the entire sentence to be the link to your post then do it this way: <a href="http://www.scottlawphotography.com/2010/08/sunset-sunday-27.html"> My sunset photo is here. </a>. It would then look like this My sunset photo is here.
2. The part between the quotation marks inside the code is the exact URL or web address that will open up when the reader clicks on the link. If you use the one in the example it will go to My Sunset Sunday Post not yours. Note that you must include the entire thing, including the "http://". The best way to get it is to open your post and then copy the URL from the address box at the top of your web browser. So if I were Chad and I wanted you to come to my Sunset Sunday photo I might type something like this: You can see my <a href="http://chadbarton.blogspot.com/2010/08/evening-rays.html"> Sunset Sunday photo here. </a>. Then when you or I read his comment it will look like "You can see my Sunset Sunday photo here." Without the quotation marks. And when you click on the "Sunset Sunday photo here" it will take you to Chad's post.
One last point - I don't think you can just copy the code from here and then change the link and verbage inside because I've used special characters that you can't see to show you what to type without it actually working as HTML code in the example. You'll have to type everything but the web address yourself the first time (you can go ahead and copy and paste the web address in where it belongs) and then you can copy and paste the whole code to your hearts content.
