I'm trying to include links but they are not taking. I'm highlighting the text, clicking on link and entering the url but when I preview (and even publish) the site, the links are not there. Help!

Hello Stacy,

I would be happy to take a look and see what is happening. What site are you experiencing this issue with?

So that site is giving me a 404 error. To fix that, follow these instructions:

I am clicking on several links in the preview, however and they are working. What links are you having trouble with specifically?

And in order to link that text, you are highlighting the part you want linked, clicking on the link icon, choosing URL and putting the URL you want it to direct to? I just did that on the Teacher page and it worked just fine. What browser are you using?

Correct.
That is what I did several times.
I did it with both Chrome and Edge.
Maybe it was a temporary glitch.
Now it works. :)

Yes, that's what I'm doing....so strange. I'm using Edge...maybe I should try Chrome?

Ok, I just tried in in Chrome and now they all work...must have been something with Edge. Thank you!

Oh yea. I do recommend not using Edge, it tends to have more trouble than Chrome or Firefox. I am glad it is working, though!
