Insert a link in the inf’s replies

Purpose: To show a clickable link in the inf's reply, which will lead to the relevant website.

How it is done:

Use the following entry format to insert the links:

<a href="website_address" target="_blank"><u>text_seen_by_inf’s_guest</u></a>

While making this template you will need to fill out the fields marked with bold type. Leave the rest without changes.

For example, if you want your inf to say “Wikipedia” and to make this a clickable link: en.wikipedia.org, your inf's reply will look like:

Guest says:
$ Do you know who * is * ?
Inf replies:
# The name rings a bell, but I'm not sure. You may search <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org" target="_blank"><u>Wikipedia</u></a> to find out.


NOTE: The URL of the website should be entered completely including the protocol name (http).

Possible uses:

There will be a clickable area in an inf's reply.

You can highlight the clickability of the text by words like “Click here”. Also you can use underline, italics or bold type to do this (see the description here for more details), for example:

Guest says:
$ Do you know who * is * ?
Inf replies:
# The name rings a bell, but I'm not sure. You may search <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org" target="_blank"><u><b>Wikipedia</b></u></a> to find out.

NOTE: You can also paste the links this way in My templates, Suggested topics, Unknown inputs and Responses to cues.

You can also insert different links in a reply to a guest's input.

Purpose: When the guest asks “Do you know who ... is?”, you can provide the guest with a link to the relevant Wikipedia page, if such a page exists.

How it is done:

Guest says:
$ Do you know who * is * ?
Inf replies:
# The name rings a bell, but I'm not sure. I would suggest to have a look <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/[*1]" target="_blank"> <u>here</u></a>.


Possible uses:

Guest: Do you know who Isaac Newton is?
Inf: The name rings a bell, but I'm not sure. I would suggest to have a look here.

If you click on the inf's reply then in the new window you will see the Wikipedia page with the address http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton.

NOTE: Frequent mistakes when inserting links:

• Entering wrong quotation marks, for example, “link’.
• Inserting the address without the protocol name (http:// at the beginning of the link);
• Entering punctuation marks into the phrase where the site address should be, like (“here:”).

In all these cases the part of the inf's reply before the link will be given as a reply.
