While citing references in questions, I paste the web address of a website. But someone usually edits the question where instead of the web address, a word contains the hyperlink to the site. How do I do this?
There are two ways to create such links when you write questions or answers.
- Mark the words you want to turn into a link, and then click on the link-icon (third from the left) in the toolbar above the input box and enter the target URL.
- Type it in yourself using this syntax:
[words you want to turn into a link](https://example.com). This also works in comments, by the way.
You can look up such things in the markdown help. When you write an answer, click on the question mark in the upper right corner of the input box to access it.
