So I’ve seen people do this, and I have no clue how to. How would write some words/a name, for example Poetry Prompt Week 16, and then make it so that when you click on the words it links to the correct thread?

Read this. Also, uncheck the Rich Text Editor.

How about you show what you're doing in Discord so we can see what's wrong?

I’m in school right now so I can’t access discord. I’m trying to add a link onto the description of a storygame. 

This is what I’m trying to use: <p><a href="https://chooseyourstory.com/my/">Link</a></p>

I don’t have the link in yet or the correct name.

Still using RTE? The string itself looks fine to me.

I turned off RTE

Log out and then in again, sometimes you need to to shake the vile influence of the RTE. We can tell it's still on for your account or otherwise that would show it as a link and the paragraph break would be invisible. You don't need the < p> by the way

I tried it and it worked but the link is leading me to an error page.

Part of the link may have been cut off. Double check that it's the right one.

The link is correct, it just gives me that strange code error screen.

Error screen? Generally HTML links are hard enough to fuck up let alone get an error. I don't think HTML can even theoretically output an error. I'm betting what you're getting is some server nonsense, what does the error say?

@Ogre11 how'd you do it?

I didn't do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can't prove anything.

It’s your game.

Yeah but it was your idea to use the link.

What was described above works just fine. If you're getting a mess like in the link C6 posted above, it's the link text: the text inside the a tag. Be sure you have the href= inside the tag. After the equals sign you need double quotes. After the double quotes you need the entire address that appears in the address bar from your browser. Then you need double quotes again. [a href="http://www.somesite.com/blah"]This text appears on the page[/a] But, of course, with angle brackets.

Thanks. I’ll check my work and make sure I have those things.
