[resolved] Side bar question/ code (10 posts)

    I'm not sure if there is a plugin for this, or maybe I'm just not using the noggin this early in the morning. The question is: Is there away to show a links code in the sidebar without displaying the link itself? Example:
    < a href=" domain.com/blog " > blog < /a >

    Without spaces, so this way people could just copy and paste the codes into their site's html if need be, for say like adding my blog's url to show on their index or links page's. Another example is, take the user name's on the right sidebar here, instead of it displaying that way. It would be like this:
    < a href=" wordpress.org/profile " > member < /a >

    Thanks in advanced... =)

    This might not be what you want, and seems tedious, but you could just manually make the links that way (I assume you still want the text to be linked? If not, simply don't link it), writing the special characters like this:

    <a href="domain.com/blog">blog</a>

    Ok, this is the second time I'm editing this: It won't let me use the code, even with backticks, for the less-than and greater-than signs that open and close HTML tags, so basically, without spaces, you'd use & l t ; and & g t ;

    What's the point?

    All someone has to do is hover and right click on the link, hit "Copy Link Location," then paste it where ever they desire.

    It doesn't get much easier.

    Hahaha...True Marc. I was thinking along lines of the people that DO NOT know how to do that. But anyways.. to Amulet, I had tried the Code tags to and it wouldn't let me either. =) But, thanks for your reply Amulet. =) I'll just think of something then I guess...

    Marc must have either got up on the wrong side of the bed, not had his coffee or just didn't get the nookie lastnight he was hoping to get. Hahaha....jk.

    Update: Amulet, I realized what ya were saying and it works!! =) I tried it on the test blog and it's doing what I wanted. Thanks so much... =)

    & l t ; a href= & quot ; http://wrench.blinstak.info/ & quot; & g t ;wrench & l t ; / a & g t ;

    All them together all tight knit...no spaces.

    No, actually I tend to believe the number of people that wouldn't know how to do the function I described is so miniscule to be concerned about it isn't worth the time nor trouble.

    And anyone that addresses their blog readers as "Thank you for your cooperation bastards..." needs to do a rethink about attitude.

    Damn, everytime I'm gone for a day or not around I get replies like this lol!!

    " No, actually I tend to believe the number of people that wouldn't know how to do the function I described is so miniscule to be concerned about it isn't worth the time nor trouble. "

    Yeah, true I suppose...but like I was basically saying or hinting was, that way it would be easier to add to files or what not. But it don't really matter now...I got it.

    " And anyone that addresses their blog readers as "Thank you for your cooperation bastards..." needs to do a rethink about attitude. "

    Well, incase ya forgot, the site is named "Vindictive Bastard" and I wouldn't think having.... "Hello all my wonderful online friends!" or "Thank you for your cooperation my wonderful online friends" wouldn't be right for it lmao!!

    I have had my Plog up before rather, under the same "name", just was a .com and had alot of visitors. Most of those visitors came in from google searches for: twisted shit, vindictive, bastard, sluts, whores, relationships, shit friends, porno, and whatever else you can think of. The people that would be "expected" to visit the Blog would be the people interested in that content, just as if I showed up here, because I was looking up a good blog software, or help for it...right?

    I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have landed at my site if it was a happy and cheerful site, while looking up the keywords they were using lmao. That comment was not really intended to be "harsh" at them really, just was to be funny. I had used that line a number of times before throughout some posts. Posts such as this one, which was originally done how long ago while using Plog.

    http://vindictivebastard.net/blog/tissues-for-the-whiningcrybaby-bastards.htm

    This part here, pretty much means what it says:
    This is me, "Mr Go Fluck Yourself" if you don't like my Blog. And I take it you don't like my Blog, so...

    This was also posted right on the main site index page before, because the Site and or (Plog) "Blog" posts are mostly VENTS about stuff that pisses me off, and or real life experiences that are pissing me off, or either just bothering me and I want to express myself! If you don't like it, leave.

    I had visited your site as well and noticed some attitude in the posts. It's just what we feel like typing or expressing at the moment. That's part of "freedom of speech", not everyone has to like what is there. Same goes for the maddox site, some people don't like him, while alot of people do. I dunno, but thanks for pointing that out though... =)

    So can we consider that this thread is "resolved"? If so, please either say so, or change the "not resolved" indicator yourself....
