So, if you have something to share, like perhaps Judi, who is graciously sharing the code for her links, which is quite extensive, then by all means do so in the comments. Or write it up on your blog and let me know. Or, if you have a question, ask. I'll answer as soon as I can, or maybe someone else will. Thanks again Judi! What she has done is very time saving because even if you don't want all of those links on your sidebar, it's a lot easier to delete code that you don't want than to type it all up fresh.
Now for the comment bling-bling:
When you open a comment box, to leave your pearls for the swine, your two cents, your wit, your spam, or whatever it is that you do in that field, it will look something like the above. Please note where the arrow is pointing in the picture above. Because that wording appears there as well. What that is doing is it is telling you that some html code can be used in the comments to spice it up.
Here is an example of how you type it up and the results of your efforts:
As you can see, if you use the "b" you will get bold typeface, the "i" gives you italics, and the "a" will underline your words. I believe these are called tags, but I could be wrong. Anyhow, there must be an opening and closing tag. The distinguishing mark between an opening and closing tag is the "forward slash" ( /) that appears in the closing tag. If you try to post your comment without typing the code properly, it won't let you post it. So, look back at it and make sure you didn't miss anything. As you can see above, what ever you want affected by the code needs to be contained within those two tags. You can continue typing the rest of your comment outside those tags and it will appear with the normal formatting set up by the blog owner for his or her particular comment section.
I've only tried those three tags but I'm sure there are more waiting to be discovered. For instance, the code for placing a link would be nice so that you don't paste an address that doesn't have a click through which I'm seeing in a lot of comments. But, that will have to wait for another day. Unless someone is up for doing an entry and leaving a link in my comments.
