Problems with HTML links on page.


Recommended Posts

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
	<head>
		<title>Home Page</title>
	</head>
	<body>

	<p>This is my home page.</p>

	<p>Meet <a href="my-friends.html">my friends.</a></p>


	</body>
</html>

Still isn't opening up in browser as a hyperlink.  Any other suggestions.

A couple of questions:

 

1) is "my-friends" an html file?  Does it have an extension (.txt .html, etc)?  If so, it must have that extension in the link.  I am running under the assumption that is is another page in your site and is called "my-friends.html".Make sure it has an html extension.  The names must match (file name and the name in your link)

<p>Meet<a href="my-friends.html"> my friends.</a></p>

2) If this is a file, it must be in the same directory as your index.html (or whatever you call you home page).  If not, you need to give a path to the file.  It is customary to have the html files of a site in the root directory and other things in sub directories.

<p>Meet<a href="directory/my-friends.html"> my friends.</a></p>

 

If I am barking up the wrong tree, clarify what you mean by not loading correctly.  Add a screen shot if you can.

Hi,

When inserting code into the forum, you may have to use the code option in the text editor menu (< >) .. anyway, try changing your code to this:

Meet <a href="my-friends.html">my friends.</a>

... You have to tell the web browser, what kind of file you are linking to. In this case, it is an html page. 

Makes sense?

I tried that and it still didn't open up in the browser as a hyperlink to my-friends.html.    Also I'm still having problems when I click on "Submit Reply"  That's why I had to edit my original post.  H E L P !!!!!
