Using Blog directions


I'm glad to say that I have figured out some of the directions. The only one stumping me is the handle, blog handle, and picture handle. BTW, isn't the picture handle and the member handle the same? Do you have to put in the underline? How?

More Tests

OK, I read the help..I got the colors and italics

now I need to get the handle thing!

Hi claudette33, hope you don't mind me stopping by.

FYI, maybe you will like my posts [post34866] and blogging 102 - linking to other things from a blog. They should (hopefully) be helpful for those a bit overwhelmed by all the possibilities for linking.

You can link to a handle using [ member handle], which in my case will be GoddessOfTheDawn.

When you link to a handle using [photo handle, which in my case links to GoddessOfTheDawn you won't see the name as a link but a picture. The link target is my profile in both cases.

when you link to my blog you can use several possibilities, the shortest being [ blog GoddessOfTheDawn], which shows my name like this GoddessOfTheDawn, or for including some other text you can use [ blog GoddessOfTheDawn this is a link to the blog] which will show up as this is a link to the blog.

If you need any help you're more than welcome to join the group we've created, bloggers of this friendly site, in there you'll find lots of helpful tips and tricks, the blogging 101 and 102 posts and many bloggers.

* in all the examples above here you need to leave out the space after the left bracket to use the commands yourself

and most importantly: have FUN blogging.... lol

Hi claudette33, hope you don't mind me stopping by.

FYI, maybe you will like my posts blogging 101 ~ commands that can be used in the blog posts and blogging 102 - linking to other things from a blog . They should (hopefully) be helpful for those a bit overwhelmed by all the possibilities for linking.

You can link to a handle using [ member handle], which in my case will be GoddessOfTheDawn .

U can also link to a handle using [ photo handle], which in my case wil be GoddessOfTheDawn .

The target of the link is the same, but in the first scenario the name is shown, in the second it's a photo.

Linking to a blog can be done in several ways:

[ blog handle] will show GoddessOfTheDawn
(but that will be restored to showing a name instead of the title as of next Wednesday / Thursday)

[ blog handle you can put the title here] will show you can put the title here

If you need any other / more help you're more than welcome to join the group we've created, bloggers of this friendly site, in there you'll find lots of helpful tips and tricks, the blogging 101 and 102 posts and many happy (and pissed off sometimes) bloggers.

* in all the examples above here you need to leave out the space after the left bracket to use the commands yourself

and most of all.... have fun blogging
