A question I’m often asked, is “How do I link to other content on the web from my own website?”
While web developers do this in their sleep, it’s not so obvious and easy for those that don’t do it all the time. Here is a breakdown of the HTML command to create a hyperlink to other content. (Note: Your keystrokes are in bold)
We start out with the opening anchor tag: <a
Next comes the href attribute: href (This stands for hypertext reference), followed by the = sign to tell it what to reference.
