[resolved] photo description html not working correctly (6 posts)

    what is the correct way to implement html into a photo description so that the link opens a new tab to an external website? right now when I try and add a link using the "a href" tags I get a link that looks like this domainname.com/wordpress/"external site" Obviously this does not work. How do I get the link to go to the "external site" and why is it adding domainname.com/wordpress to the link and then adding quotation marks around the desired link address? Sorry if this sounds a bit elementary but I am a bit miffed? any help would be greatly appreciated

    Always start the link with http:// otherwise it is a relative link.
    This is basic html

    im sorry, I should have just given the links as they were written- the http:// was used in the tag.here is the link in question http://grillgrate.com/wordpress/?page_id=487

    please take a look at the first product shot, it has the link in its description. trying to link it to our stores product page but im still getting a bad link.

    once again your help is greatly appreciated!
