How to add a long url link in a post

1412

Sometimes members wish to add a link (to other sites) to their posts which are really long. When they are wider than the page they “break” the site’s template and as a viewer it looks awful.

So in order to add a link that’s really long do the following:

1. When composing your post, click on the add URL button:

add-url-button

2. Then add your URL link between the code and edit it so it looks like the example below. This example links to the MCN website:

url-link

In your actual post it will look like the “Good Example” in 1. below.

However, don’t be too pedantic, if the actual link is short in length then the 2nd way is fine, but if it’s quite long then the 1st example is best.
