View Full Version : Linking: Help me figure this out
12-23-2004, 12:22 AM
I want to figure out this "linking" thing so I can link others to me and me to them.
My stories do have a purpose....

Text Here (name of url/page you want to link to)
So say I write this;
in my page only Trybalink.net will appear.
For forums (Like here) It's slightly different because we use the box brackets instead of the < > (< Them things).
So if I write[url=http://www.trybalink.net/]Trybalink.net[/url]
In the forum I'll get a text link Trybalink.net
Trybalink.net (http://www.trybalink.net/) <See?
I just copied the above forum code so you can see .
In your blog there you would use the html code (The a href) . btw to disable the code so you can see it I am using the code option
[code] < open
Notice how I close the tag with a [/ .
Now you site
1st. It's nothing special - sorry, but blogs are all over the Internet now and some are quite advanced offering a lot more than your rant at certain things you disagree with.
2nd. Your language leaves a lot to be desired. I'm all for free speech but free speech does not mean you have to be as obtuse or obnoxious as you please.
3rd. I notice you carry a story (In complaint) about a disabled person sueing a website because it was inaccessible to them? Good!! and the more the better! It means that finally we can get rid of so much garbage and garbage coding standards that exist online. Your using a system which actually is covered in this aspect as your blog templates (Unless you have messed with it) are in xhtml, so the disabled are quite easily able to 'View' your site.
Sorry to be hard on you but you have a lot to learn - 1st lesson would be to edit the language out. I mean is that the way you talk to your mum? Dad? kid brother or sister?
So why talk to us like that?
It's the first reason I would say no to you linking to my site. I run a community site so how can I send people to your site when all your doing is trying to shock? Yawns So 1970's .....
Sorry for a hard review but you did ask
G'Luck and hey don't give up, think about what you want to do, look at how others have done it and learn how to at least do some basic coding
Merry Christmas :)

I am a "Limey" and proud if it.
You are asking for help but some of these people are people you are ranting about. Or are Limey's not allowed to contribute. :?
There has been an interesting forum "conversation" about similar issues here;
12-23-2004, 02:18 PM
Nomad, thanks for the codes, sounds easy enough. My blog is definately in premature infant stage regarding excitement and or content. I am doing it one step at a time until I get it. I admit there are millions of blogs that are similar which can be boring and "1970's"
Obviously when you "write" a blog like I am doing you will offend some and piss off others. I get that. Not every "story" I write will be for everyone so if you choose not to link, then that is fine. I just call it as I see it. If I call the British "limeys" it is only for color not for racism or stereotyping. I'd call myself a "Kraut" or "Upper Class White Trash American" but you won't ever hear me call someone the "N-Word", etc. because that word and others like it are meant to supress and degrade. Calling a Brit a limey or an American white trash is not serious because of its own irony. If you are not convinced, sit and read the rest of the blog.
My inspiration for my blog comes from our last election and how "polarized" America is right down to your own circle of friends. I have always had an "I call as I see it attitude" which makes my attitude quite a paradox.
It is clear to me there is one thing missing from your blog .....

Further to Nomads answer.
To turn ALL underline links off add the following anywere between the <head> and </head> tags.
You can then use the conventional
But the link will not be underlined.

It's clearly obvious that my latest blog's message is not meant to disrespect the British people. I have the utmost respect for the British. For example, you took rock n roll and made it better with Beatles and Radiohead and for that I commend you. (I still can't figure out what that Prodigy thing was about) You didn't destroy the Guinness factory with your many rows with Ireland. For that I respect your people the most.
I was merely pointing out how stupid that Access Law is for Websites. So what? I said Brits were Limeys. What the hell does Limey mean anyway?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

......You didn't destroy the Guinness factory with your many rows with Ireland.......
Thank God for small Murphy's http://www.murphys.com/splash
Prefer the Irish Guinness myself. We get English Gunness here but there are a few pubs who import "Irish" Guinness

Some breweries here on the West Coast make a good stout or two but nothing like Guiness.
12-23-2004, 11:38 PM
Never been to the W coast. Had some Sam Adam's on the E coast. It was OK. As the saying goes (to para phrase}; "When in Rome, don't be a Christian"

Sam Adams is the Bud Light of "micro brews".
There is a "British" Pub here in Sacramento and the two guys that own it are British. I laughed like hell when one of the owners held up a Budweiser and yelled "king of beers" to the bar. The poor soul that ordered it was humiliated.
Coors or Miller got a hold of some beer called "Fat Tire" and they claim it is Belgian? This summer the stuff appeared at every bar and there are red trucks brandishing the Fat Tire logo. The problem: It is terrible!!! Nothing like other Belgians.
You have given me a new topic for my blog... Beer Review.
12-24-2004, 12:10 AM
Never heard of Fat Tire. (Been out with a few - sorry). Have been there on Eurostar (Train through france to belgum) a couple of months ago. It is the country of beers. Hoggarten (not sure of the spelling is my fav. large (light beer) Flowery). As for bitters (dark beer) Abbots ale (brewed in suffolk UK).
If you are going to Blog it we have an Org called CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale). Just looked at the site and it is dire. I supose that web design and a gallon a day don't mix. http://www.camra.org.uk
Beer joke of the day - I told my wife I only had one. She thought pints, I meant gallons. Hic
It's clearly obvious that my latest blog's message is not meant to disrespect the British people.
My comment had not been only in regard to Brits ... but no matter.
