    Hi esam510,
    Can you please proved another link, the link above does not take me to the page so I am unable to view the links.



    Thanks esame! So what is happening is that your link is putting your url in front of the link url:

    In the editor, select the link, open the insert/edit link icon and remove the following:

    Your links will work.

    Hope that helps.

    That’s the thing though. I’ve been trying to fix it through the insert/edit link icon and none of the links have in front of it. All of them are just the regular url but none of them work. Any other ideas?


    in your HREF attribute, try adding a http:// before the URL.

    Change this:
    <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    Note the new href attribute and the http:// preceding the external site URL.

    You must indicate a http:// to dictate that the URL is on an external site, and not residing on your current site. Without the http:// your site thinks those are pages that live on your site and treat it as such.

    That will work. I just tested it out on your site.

    If you want to link to internal pages ( pages or posts that reside on your current site ) you can do so by just adding the base url of the page or post you are trying to get too. For example href="/new-post/"
    will direct the user to the post or page title with the URL

    Hope that helps and explains a bit about external vs internal linking.


    all of them are currently like this:

    <p class=”p1″></p>

    Please remember to use backticks to surround your code, otherwise the forum’s parser will corrupt it!

    I’m staring directly at your links, and I can assure you they do not have an http:// before them.

    wait not that’s not how they are it edited my full text:

    <p class=”p1″><a href=””


    yea I don’t know why it posted that. I copy pasted from the text section in the page editor and it changed it for some reason

    it still did it!!! Ok before the theres www.

    Please re-read my post above explaining exactly what you need to do. The answer is up there.


    the first one that is between the href=” and”

    The first what? Did you read my post? I’ve been talking about adding an HTTP:// BEFORE the www.

    Got it. It worked. I appreciate it!
