    I added a link to a file on my weWeb using the link button.
    It appears in the post in my admin area but it's not visible in the post on my Web site

    What would cause that?

    You forgot to add some link text inside the link?

    I'm going to need a bit more information if you still need help. How about going to the 'Edit Post' section, and opening the offending post. From there, click the "HTML" tab, and copy and paste the code here. If it's a very long post, find the paragraph with the link(s) and post that.

    And then I saw that I have to enter some text after the link :

    Can I force the link to open in a new window?

    Are you using the HTML or Visual editor?

    You can wrap any element with an anchor tag that specifies a target.

    <a href="http://www.google.com" target="_blank">Place any image, SWF file or text here to create the link</a>

    My links were appearing, then whoops - some not. Is there a maximum length to my post w/pic at top and link at bottom? I'm using the blue link button to put my links in. Have been doing this for a week. Appreciate any help -thanks,
