    Hi! I'm a newbie, trying to talk about other blogs and make the link in bold blue to other blog in my own post. Tried the link quicktag, either doesn't show up at all, jsut a gap where words should be, or it underlines and links the whole of the rest of the post (even when I close tag like it tells me). Anyone tell me what to do? Thanks! Sarah

    To make a link if you have the WSYWIG editor turned off (IE your screen looks like the one on this post, it is easiest to first write the text of the link IE: Richard's Blog then Highlight it using the cursor and then click the link button to make Richard's Blog and you should get:

    <a href="http://www.richandstephsipe.com/wordpress/">
    Richard's Blog
    </a>

    What could be happening is maybe your CSS is set to have a link color of white for whatever reason. You can try using this inline CSS link to see if it works in a post

    <a href="http://www.richandstephsipe.com/wordpress/" style="color:blue;font-weight:bold;">A Blog</a>
